Acunetix Clamps Down On Costly Website Security With Online Solution

Keep on Guard!


As cyber security continues to hit the headlines, even smaller companies can expect to be subject to scrutiny and therefore securing their website is more important than ever. In response to this, Acunetix are offering the online edition of their vulnerability scanner at a new lower entry price. This new option allows consumers to opt for the ability to scan just one target or website and is a further step in making the top of the range scanner accessible to a wider market.

Acunetix clamps down on costly website security with online solution

A web vulnerability scanner allows the user to identify any weaknesses in their website architecture which might aid a hacker. They are then given the full details of the problem in order to fix it. While the scanner might previously have been a niche product used by penetration testers, security experts and large corporations, in our current cyber security climate, such products need to be made available to a wider market. Acunetix have recognised this which is why both the product and its pricing have become more flexible and tailored to multiple types of user, with a one scan target option now available at 295 Euros. Pricing for other options has also been reduced by around 15% to reflect the current strength of the dollar. Use of the network scanning element of the product is also currently being offered completely free.

Acunetix CEO Nicholas Galea said: “Due to recent attacks such as the Sony hack and the Anthem Inc breach, companies are under increasing pressure to ensure their websites and networks are secure. We’ve been continuously developing our vulnerability scanner for a decade now, it’s a pioneer in the field and continues to be the tool of choice for many security experts. We feel it’s a tool which can benefit a far wider market which is why we developed the more flexible and affordable online version.
