It took me ages to get this to work it kept giving me an error that I was missing some.dll files which was a rare experience while opening acunetix, the one I after downloaded it from https://securedyou.com/ which worked. However, it is a great tool overall and would recommend it to anyone.


Not good as Burpsuite Pro. I really sad. Now we are using the best scanner better than Acunetix, Nessus Web Scanner and Metasploit Web Scanner.. It is Burpsuite Pro

I LOVE Acunetix. Hands down best scanner out there and I've literally used them all. Identifies sqli vulns undetected by burp and nessus. Great for beginners for obvious reasons, but you can actually learn a lot by using it.

★★★★★ CISO

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.
