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

Agentless patching is the best of all the products I've used. The real-time updates that don't require re-scanning after each step is great.
Read full review Pros Fast. Easy-to-use. Great customer support. Reporting features. Supports importing state files from other popular application testing tools. Has other features built-in beyond just scanning for vulnerabilities. Read full review Trusted ownership checking is a good way to implement effective basic protection. Patching is important today to react quickly to security problems. With Security Controls, it's easier than ever before. One console for whole security. Read full review Cons Configuration of DevSecOps can be improved for ease Dashboard can have API integration Broaden the scope of vulnerabilities Read full review Performance of the console when using agentless machines. The console layout is a bit cumbersome - would be better if all functions were accessible from one screen. Common deployment examples to assist with deployment types. Read full review Support Rating
Support wasn't used as the cost didn't justify the expense. We have yet to use the support.

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.

Since we have been using Application Control for about 15 years, it is, of course, the best solution for us. We also looked at other products (RES One Workspace), but they didn't convince us. Some features of RES were good and are now part of the User Workspace Manager. The Microsoft solution seems too complicated to us and does not have the advantages of Trusted Ownership Checking.
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 Reduced amount of operating hours for administration of patching.
