Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"One of the features that I feel is groundbreaking, that I would like to see expanded on, is the IAS feature: The Interactive Application Security Testing module that gets loaded onto an application on a server, for more in-depth, granular findings. I think that is really neat. I haven't seen a lot of competitors doing that.""The most important feature is that it's a web-based graphical user interface. That is a great addition. Also, the ability to schedule scans is great.""Their technical support has been very active. If I have an issue, I can reach out to them and get an answer pretty quick.""We are able to create a report which shows the PCI DSS scoring and share it with the application teams. Then, they can correlate and see exactly what they need to fix, and why.""The automated approach to these repetitive discovery attempts would take days to do manually and therefore it helps reduce the time needed to do an assessment.""The vulnerability scanning option for analyzing the security loopholes on the websites is the most valuable feature of this solution.""Our developers can run the attacks directly from their environments, desktops.""It can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated with other applications, which makes it a very versatile solution to have."

"Takes reports from other vulnerabilities."

More BMC TrueSight Vulnerability Management Pros »

"I find the most valuable features are the continuous monitoring. Even on premises, there is constant monitoring.""It is a simple solution that makes scanning easy. You just give it a scheduled task, and it will do everything for you.""The reporting is fine.""It is quite easy to implement.""There are fewer false positives when using this solution.""Tech support is helpful.""Technical support is fantastic.""The most valuable features are vulnerability detection and the scanning capability to enable identification of vulnerabilities across our network."

Cons
"Integration into other tools is very limited for Acunetix. While we're trying to incorporate a CI/CD process where we're integrating with JIRA and we're integrating with Jenkins and Chef, it becomes problematic. Other tools give you a high integration capability to connect into different solutions that you may already have, like JIRA.""It should be easier to recreate something manually, with the manual tool, because Acunetix is an automatic tool. If it finds something, it should be easier to manually replicate it. Sometimes you don't get the raw data from the input and output, so that could be improved.""You can't actually change your password after you've set it unless you go back into the administration account and you change it there. Thus, if you're locked out and don't remember your password, that's a thing.""We have had issues during upgrades where their scans worked on some apps better with previous versions. Then, we had to work with their tech support, who were great, to get it fixed for the next version.""It would be nice to have a feature to "retest" only a single vulnerability that the customer reports as patched, and delete it from the next scans since it has already been patched.""In terms of what needs improvement, the way the licensing model is currently is not very convenient for us because initially, when we bought it, the licensing model was very flexible, but now it restricts us.""Tools that would allow us to work more efficiently with the mobile environment, with Android and iOS.""When monitoring the traffic we always have issues with the bandwidth consumption and the throttling of traffic."

"No third-party applications or integrations with additional software solutions."

More BMC TrueSight Vulnerability Management Cons »

"They have integrated with other third parties, but it is still not viable.""When tested on Zero day, there were errors.""The only improvement I can think of is on the implementation side. At times it is a bit slow.""When you want to cover yourself for scalability, you will be charged for the number you place on the scan itself.""It is more expensive vs. other products on the market.""I do not like that all of the data is stored on the cloud.""It's quite complex on the way it is set up, so it takes a fair bit of time in order to get your head around it in order to deploy it. Once you've deployed it, then you're never confident on the versions of the browsers and the SSL certificates, etc. You have to always go back into Qualys and check.""I would like to see this solution more developed and competitive in the Cloud space."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"When we looked at all other vendors and what they were asking for, to provide a third of what Acunetix was capable of doing, it was an easy decision... But now that it's coming to a cost where it's line with market value, it becomes more of a competition... Acunetix is raising the cost of licensing. It's 3.5 times what we were initially quoted.""Acunetix was around the same price as all the other vendors we looked at, nothing special.""The pricing and licensing are reasonable to a point. In order to run multiple scans at a time, we are going to have to purchase a 100 count license, which is an overkill. Though, compared to what we were paying for, the cost seems reasonable.""All things considered, I think it has a good price/value ratio.""The costs aren't very expensive. It costs around $3000 or $4000.""I would say that Acunetix is expensive because there are products on the market with similar features that are equally or better-priced.""The pricing is a little high, and moreover, it's kind of domain-based."
