Simple to use and achieves the required results but more efficiency with the mobile environment would be helpful

What is our primary use case?

I'm an IT Manager and we're a customer of Acunetix. We use the automatic tool to control the security of our applications. For the time being, we have two or three people in the company working with the solution, setting up all of the parameters, all the attacks. We have 15 separate groups in the company, most are testing the tool and learning how to use it. We will deploy the tool for the rest of the company at the beginning of next year.

Pros and Cons

  • "Our developers can run the attacks directly from their environments, desktops."
  • "Tools that would allow us to work more efficiently with the mobile environment, with Android and iOS."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the product. It's very easy to integrate with Jenkins, with ALM. The most important element for us is that it's very easy for developers to use. They don't need to have any knowledge about security, threats or anything. They just run the tool against their application, and that's it. They get the results. I would rate this product a seven out of 10.

Very high level of accuracy and speedy scanning

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for web applications but rather than being in a production environment, it's in a testing environment. We check for vulnerabilities found in the test environment and remediate them. Following that, we publish the web application for web production. We are customers of Netsparker and I'm the retail services senior manager.

Pros and Cons

  • "High level of accuracy and quick scanning."

    What other advice do I have?

    This is not a simple solution, there is a complexity there. A lot of companies here don't like the idea of using a cloud provider or cloud application for scanning. We prefer to have stand-alone applications and not use the cloud. It's something they could offer, like Qualys. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

    Easy to use with a simple interface, but we sometimes had trouble capturing login sequences

    What is our primary use case?

    We use WebInspect for performance network application testing to be sure that we aren't creating any security issues.

    Pros and Cons

    • "The user interface is ok and it is very simple to use."
    • "It took us between eight and ten hours to scan an entire site, which is somewhat slow and something that I think can be improved."

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
