Acunetix v11 in­te­grates Vul­ner­a­bil­ity Man­age­ment

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

Acunetix, the pi­o­neer in au­to­mated web ap­pli­ca­tion se­cu­rity soft­ware, has an­nounced the re­lease of ver­sion 11. New in­te­grated vul­ner­a­bil­ity man­age­ment fea­tures ex­tend the en­ter­prise’s abil­ity to com­pre­hen­sively man­age, pri­ori­tise and con­trol vul­ner­a­bil­ity threats – or­dered by busi­ness crit­i­cal­ity. Ver­sion 11 in­cludes a new web-based UI for greater ease-of-use and man­age­abil­ity, pro­vid­ing ac­cess by mul­ti­ple users.

For the first time in the mar­ket­place Acunetix is launch­ing an en­ter­prise­level prod­uct that in­te­grates so­phis­ti­cated au­to­mated test­ing tech­nol­ogy with vul­ner­a­bil­ity man­age­ment, at a price point ac­ces­si­ble to ev­ery de­vel­op­ment team. Chris Martin, CEO, Acunetix ex­plained:

“Acunetix has been at the fore­front in web ap­pli­ca­tion se­cu­rity with its cut­ting-edge vul­ner­a­bil­ity scan­ning tech­nol­ogy for the past 12 years. With Ver­sion 11 we have com­bined proac­tive scan­ning for web ap­pli­ca­tion vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties with the pri­or­i­ti­za­tion of mit­i­ga­tion ac­tiv­i­ties. This in­te­gra­tion helps se­cu­rity teams gain the in­tel­li­gence they need to work more ef­fi­ciently, pri­or­i­tiz­ing ac­tions, as­sign­ing jobs and there­fore re­duc­ing costs.”

The new web-based in­ter­face sig­nif­i­cantly im­proves the man­age­abil­ity of the Acunetix on-premises so­lu­tion, mak­ing it easy for less sea­soned se­cu­rity per­son­nel to check the vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties in the com­pany’s web as­sets. In ad­di­tion, user priv­i­leges can be au­to­mat­i­cally as­signed. Ni­cholas Sciber­ras, CTO at Acunetix, com­mented: “Ver­sion 11 helps or­ga­ni­za­tions en­gaged heav­ily in ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment by util­is­ing a role-based multi-user sys­tem.”

In­built Vul­ner­a­bil­ity Man­age­ment

New in­te­grated vul­ner­a­bil­ity man­age­ment fea­tures al­low for the review of ag­gre­gated vul­ner­a­bil­ity data across all Tar­gets, pri­or­i­tiz­ing se­cu­rity risks and there­fore pro­vid­ing a clear view of the busi­ness’ se­cu­rity pos­ture, while fa­cil­i­tat­ing com­pli­ance.

New in­built vul­ner­a­bil­ity man­age­ment fea­tures in­clude: • All Tar­gets (web ap­pli­ca­tions to scan) are now stored in Acunetix with their in­di­vid­ual set­tings and can be eas­ily re-scanned. • Tar­gets are dis­played in one in­ter­face and clas­si­fied by busi­ness crit­i­cal­ity, al­low­ing you to eas­ily fo­cus on the most im­por­tant as­sets. • Vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties can also be pri­or­i­tized

by the Tar­get’s busi­ness crit­i­cal­ity. • Con­sol­i­dated re­ports are stored in the

cen­tral in­ter­face. • Users can choose be­tween “Tar­get re­ports”, “Scan re­ports” or “All Vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties” re­port.
