Overall Satisfaction with Acunetix by Invicti

We are not a big web development shop but we occasionally do have new code that we need to test against OWASP type web application vulnerabilities. There are many tools that can do this. But most of them have a fairly decent rate of false positives. Also, they don't really help address the issues that they find. Acunetix has had a low false-positive rate for us. The developer reports provide a lot of contexts to help the people who need to fix the issues know what to fix.
  • Low rate of false positives
  • Good reporting options
  • Authenticated scans
  • User management
  • Low rate of false positives
  • Detailed developer reports
  • Support for a sufficient number of assets
  • It has aided audit compliance
  • It has allowed for deployment of secure code
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.

Acunetix scales well from a small web development presence like ours to a full-scale enterprise focused on that. The various tools and sensors that provide assurance of the results and can give feedback down to the lines of code in the source are proof of this. Various integrations exist as well. The main thing for us is that it simplifies confirming and remediating potential issues in our code or proving that products we use have issues that we can then take to the vendor for correction.
