Acunetix v11 integrates Vulnerability Management
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.
