It is best suited for integrated security testing of applications which are hosted on web servers. The most important thing is the integration of DevSecOps which is crucial in today's fast paced environment of rapid development. The core of Acunetix is application scanning which is really great and I highly recommend this product to everyone

Offline or a standalone application is much needed from Codacy to get local support. Spots a lot of errors and small ones that don't affect much about quality and are de-facto standards.

ZAP is a free tool, and adequate. But it is to that extent less friendly. I would not be as confident of the results and it definitely can't produce reports on par with Acunetix. There would be a lot of legwork on our end if we desired to switch to this tool.

Even though it is paid while
is free, we chose Codacy because it is simpler to configure and maintain the implemented rules. In addition, it offers support for the main programming languages on the market, ensuring that we can continue to use it if we want to use other languages in new products.
Read full review Return on Investment Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run. Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration. A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc. Read full review The integration of Codacy with new code base is quick and easy. Improves our code. Easy to detect errors easily. Ability to check duplicate codes. Read full review ScreenShots Acunetix by Invicti Screenshots
