Pricing and Cost Advice
I would say that Acunetix is expensive because there are products on the market with similar features that are equally or better-priced.The costs aren't very expensive. It costs around $3000 or $4000.All things considered, I think it has a good price/value ratio.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.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.

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 than other products on the market.

Top Answer: We want to see how much bandwidth usage it consumes. When we monitor traffic we have issues with the consumption and throttling of the traffic.
Top Answer: It's a good product. After the scan our internet works well. It scans our security posture.
Top Answer: I would give the pricing three out of five.
Top Answer: Reporting can be improved more. It should generate much more stuff like field reports. Though the reports generally meet our need we hope we can customize it better.
