Audit your web application security with Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner

With the advent of cloud computing and the advancements in browser technology, web applications and web services have become a core component of many business processes, and therefore a lucrative target for attackers. However, over 70% of websites and web applications contain vulnerabilities that could lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data, credit card information, customer information, and Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner plugs all the holes because more than being a priority, network security is a fundamental requirement.

Over 70% of websites and web applications contain vulnerabilities that could lead to data theft.

Firewalls, SSLs, and hardened networks are futile against web application hacking

Cyber criminals are focusing their efforts on exploiting weaknesses in web applications such as eCommerce platforms, blogs, login pages, and other dynamic content. Insecure web applications and web services not only provide attackers easy access to backend databases but also allow them to perform illegal activities using compromised sites.

Web application attacks are carried out over HTTP and HTTPS; the same protocols that are used to deliver legitimate content to users. Yet web application attacks, both on free open-source software such as WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla, as well as commercial or custom-built applications, can have crippling effects that are as bad as or even worse than traditional network-based attacks.

The technology leaders in automated web application security

DeepScan Technology allows accurate crawling of AJAX-heavy client-side Single Page Applications (SPAs) that leverage complex technologies such as SOAP/WSDL, SOAP/WCF, REST/WADL, XML, JSON, Google Web Toolkit (GWT), and CRUD operations. 

Industry’s most advanced and robust SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting testing, including advanced detection of DOM-based Cross-site Scripting.

AcuSensor Technology allows accurate scanning further reducing the false positive rate by combining black box scanning techniques with feedback from its sensors placed inside the source code.
