Acunetix is our vulnerability scanning tool of choice for situations where information security is a real concern and confidence in safety is key.

JP Lessard, President of Software Services, Miles Technologies

Acunetix has helped us to identify problems as well as to increase the trust level between the project and client, following years of pen tests.

Bob Cain, Sr. IT Specialist, Parsons

Acunetix has helped us solve and improve application security. Thanks to Acunetix, we can eliminate potential attack vectors before publishing the application. With Acunetix, we also solved the challenges posed by an insufficient developer education level in the area of security.

Alejandro Vergara, ISO, Caracol TV

Acunetix has improved the turnaround time for the process and has been a boon for the IT team.

Sachindra Narayan, Senior Security Specialist, Cognizant

Initially we were thrilled to run Acunetix to find and fix some rather large vulnerabilities we had no idea existed. Since then, we have moved to a more comprehensive strategy that includes multiple scan targets running in tandem with our software development lifecycle. When our customers ask us if our software is security tested, Acunetix gives us the confidence to say it is.

Greg Fuller, Quality Assurance Analyst, Vermont Systems

The primary advantage of Acunetix is that it helps us save time when testing.

German Jasso, Computation Engineer, Telcel

The user-friendly UI is really helpful when scanning and Acunetix helps us avoid many false positives, saving us time.

Karen Zhu, InfoSec Engineer, GreenDot

It helps me find security vulnerabilities and suggests how to fix them.

Tan Nguyen, Team Leader, i-financial

Acunetix v12 is crazy fast and the concurrent scans went way up! I could only do 10 concurrent scans before, but now I am running over double the amount concurrently. This is a huge increase in performance and capacity. I was going to add 2 more worker scanners, but with v12 this is no longer necessary, saving greatly on our monthly costs. Also because of the way targets our now counted, my Target estimate has reduced considerably. Great Job!

Bill F., Web Application Vulnerability Scanning Service Lead, VITA

We utilize Acunetix to more thoroughly assess internet-facing websites and servers. Acunetix helps us identify vulnerabilities in conjunction with other vulnerability scanning applications. Acunetix has been a more reliable application when discovering / determining different types of malicious code injection vulnerabilities (SQL, HTML, CGI, etc).

Carter Horton, Assoc. Information Analyst, GD Information Technology

We use it to scan new application launches, and use it yearly to audit new development. It has allowed us to catch a vulnerability in a piece of software from a vendor.

Troy Dowd,Owens-Illinois, Inc.

Each new system is analyzed with Acunetix allowing us to fix vulnerabilities such as SQL injections or cross-site scripting.

Julio Lopez Saa, Analista de Ciberseguridad, Comisión Chilena de Energía Nuclear

We use Acunetix as part of our Security in the SDLC and to test code in DEV and SIT before being promoted to Production.

Kurt Zanzi, Xerox CA-MMIS Information Security Office, xerox

We use Acunetix for initial site enumeration and to ensure that we cover all common surface area and attacks with at least a minimum level of testing. Most of our testing is completed manually and we find logic issues, and so on, but occasionally we focus on difficult to find issues instead of simple issues, like a file upload flaw hidden in the corner of a site that Acunetix brings to our attention.

Brian W. Gray, Sr. Information Security Engineer, Carnegie Mellon University

Acunetix runs a set of hundreds, if not thousands, of tricky tests, and builds up a list of very informative reports afterwards. The most important issues it finds, are Blind SQL injections and XSS. It also gives recommendations regarding less important, but still notable security parts and vulnerabilities, which could be present on a website. Here on miniBB, we have plans to co-operate closely with Acunetix also for the future releases of miniBB. We take care of our security and any corporate customers should do too. This scanner looks very promising and could protect your website from lots of problems even at this stage.

Paul Puzyrev, Founder, miniBB

It’s taken our penetration testing to a new level!

Mark Akins, Managing Partner, 1st Secure IT, LLC

Acunetix has helped make our application stronger and given our clients the assurance that their data is safe.

Benjamin De Point, VP of Software Development & Hosting, Hospitality101 Inc. (

Acunetix WVS surpasses other web application vulnerability scanners out there, both in terms of its ability to find vulnerabilities and reduce the false positives that I have to deal with. We use the consulting license and actually use it to help improve the security posture of many other organizations. While automated vulnerability testing is only one piece of the puzzle in app sec, it does its piece very well. This is why I have renewed my license for the 3rd year in a row.

Aaron Bryson, Technical Director, Cylance, Inc.

As an all-in-one package for pen testing, it fulfils that duty well in an easy-to-use interface

Justin Pasher, IT Manager, Distribion

Having used Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner (consultant edition) since 2009, we find it an essential tool in protecting our interior critical system and helping our customers to protect their own systems. We had previously used IBM appscan, but have found Acunetix to have a more user friendly interface, be simpler to install, and runs faster. We use both Apache and IIS servers and technologies including PHP, .NET, C, Perl and Java, for which we have found Acunetix to be very effective. We also find it very well priced in comparison to its competitors.”

I had used Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner (WVS) a couple of years ago to determine how much it could help my vulnerability assessment efforts, given I was formally trained to pen-test networks and hosts but knew little about web and database apps. I tested a few products, including some from HP and IBM. Having used Acunetix WVS further this year, I was especially impressed since it performed a remarkably detailed and capable scan with very little effort. Reporting is comprehensive, absent of too many false positives, and Acunetix WVS produces neat and understandable reports. The layout is intuitive enough to start basic testing and yet the product is wildly powerful, leaving you room to do so much more.

Dave Wood, Datacom (New Zealand)
