Defend Against Known Application Vulnerabilities
The first step to kick starting your web application security program is to look for known application vulnerabilities. Keeping known vulnerabilities out of your code base prevents attackers from easily exploiting them and running malicious code. Attacks such as SQL injection and Cross-site Scripting are usually much easier to fix than to find them, so educating developers about best practices, defining a security policy and enforcing development security standards are all important approaches when defending against web security vulnerabilities.
- Discover in excess of more than 6500 security vulnerabilities
- Detect SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting and all of their variants
Automatically scan all website files with custom form authentication or other custom access controls and session management
Get Actionable Insights into Your Web Application Vulnerabilities
By using tools to help you simulate web application attacks, you’ll be in a position to find and fix security vulnerabilities before an attacker has the chance to exploit them. A vulnerability scanner like Acunetix also recommends actions that you can take to correct the vulnerabilities it identifies, as well as the ability to retest fixes.
Acunetix also allows you to produce dozens of technical and compliance reports with actionable information web application developers, security professionals, and regulators can use to assess and reduce security risks:
- Out-of-the-box vulnerability management tools including historic trends, and prioritization
- Integration with popular Issue Trackers such as Atlassian Jira, GitHub, GitLab, Microsoft Team Foundation Server, Bugzilla, and Mantis
- Easy to generate compliance reports for PCI DSS, OWASP Top 10, ISO 27001 and HIPAA
