Is Your Website Hackable?

70% are. Detect and action with Acunetix

As many as 70% of websites contain vulnerabilities that can lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data such as credit card information and customer lists. Website security must be a priority in any organization but remains overlooked. Hackers continue to concentrate on web-based applications such as shopping carts, forms, login pages and dynamic content. Web applications are accessible 24/7 and control valuable data since they often have direct access to back-end data.

Acunetix - The Technology Leader in Web

Application Security

Acunetix are the pioneers in Automated Web Application Security Testing with an engineering lead in website structure analysis and vulnerability detection.

Firewalls, SSL and Hardened Networks Are Futile Against Web Application Hacking

Any defense at network security level will provide no protection against web application attacks since they are launched on ports 80/443 – which have to remain open. In addition, web applications are often tailor-made therefore tested less than off-the-shelf software and are more likely to have undiscovered vulnerabilities.

Acunetix automatically tests websites and web applications for SQL Injection, XSS, XXE, SSRF, Host Header Attacks & over 3000 other web application vulnerabilities. In addition, Acunetix provides powerful Vulnerability Management tools for ensuring vulnerabilities are not only discovered, but remediated in context of business-criticality; as well as providing management with the tools and reports required to make strategic decisions.

The Acunetix innovative technologies include:

  • DeepScan Technology allows accurate crawling of AJAX-heavy client-side Single Page Applications (SPAs) that leverage complex technologies.

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

  • A Login Sequence Recorder that allows the automatic crawling and scanning of complex password protected areas.

  • 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.

  • Built-in Vulnerability Management tools to discover, measure and remediate vulnerabilities with ease. Including a wide variety of management and compliance reports.

  • Highest detection of WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal vulnerabilities.

In-depth SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting Vulnerability Testing

Acunetix rigorously tests for thousands of web application vulnerabilities including SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting. SQL Injection is one of the oldest and most prevalent of software bugs; it allows attackers to modify SQL queries in order to gain access to data in the database. Cross-site scripting attacks allow attackers to execute malicious scripts inside the visitors’ browser; possibly leading to impersonation of that user. Acunetix is the industry leader in detecting the largest variety of SQL Injection and XSS vulnerabilities, including Out-of-band SQL Injection and DOM-based XSS

AcuSensor Technology Guarantees Low False Positives

Traditional web application security testing (black-box testing) will not see how code behaves during execution and source code analysis will not alwaysunderstand what happens when code is in execution. Acunetix AcuSensor combines these two methodologies and is able to achieve a significantly higher

detection of vulnerabilities.

Acunetix AcuSensor Technology enhances a regular dynamic scan by deploying

an agent inside the source code to provide Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) functionality. AcuSensor will then relay feedback to the scanner during the source code’s execution. What’s more, AcuSensor, even indicates the line of code where the vulnerability lies and reports additional debug information. This greatly increases remediation efficiency and makes the developer’s task of fixing the vulnerabilities quicker and easier.
