My team used Acunetix consultant version for quite some time and compared to generic infrastructure VA tools like Nessus, and Foundstone we found the value in using a specialized Web VA tool. It found more and specific issues with precise recommendations to fix those. I recommend it based on my experience. I havent explored the IBM and HP counterparts yet...I understand that they are relatively costlier.

Acunetix is fast, good and cheap. Better than IBM Appscan and cheaper than HP WebInspect.

It is OK, for point and shoot, but after using it a few times and then using BurpSuite, I just put it aside for except for those clients that demanded I use an automated commercial scanner. I would on one condition that I could also use BurpSuite. I always found more with Burp then I did with this tool.
