Very easy to set up because they give you an installer that does everything
What is our primary use case?
We needed it to scan our internal network and web applications. Our security team of five people used it. We scheduled some monthly scans for web applications, which were not being used, to check for vulnerabilities and also vulnerabilities on new features.
Pros and Cons
"Acunetix has an awesome crawler. It gives a referral site map of near targets and also goes really deep to find all the inputs without issues. This was valuable because it helped me find some files or directories, like web admin panels without authentication, which were hidden."
"I had some issues with the JSON parameters where it found some strange vulnerabilities, but it didn't alert the person using it or me about these vulnerabilities, e.g., an error for SQL injection."
What other advice do I have?
We found 50 unexpected, high vulnerabilities for three web applications. This made our principal a bit mad. We found three or four DOM-based XSS vulnerabilities using this solution. It did not require maintenance on our part. We just needed to give it some credentials. I would rate it as a nine out of 10.
