With v12 also comes a brand new scanning engine, re-engineered and re-written from the ground up, making Acunetix the fastest scanning engine in the industry.
– Announced Nicholas Sciberras, CTO.
AcuSensor for Java
Acunetix version 12 includes a new AcuSensor for Java web applications. This improves the coverage of the web site and the detection of web vulnerabilities, decreases false positives and provides more information on the vulnerabilities identified. While already supporting PHP and ASP .NET, the introduction of Java support in AcuSensor means that Acunetix coverage for interactive gray box scanning of web applications is now possibly the widest in the industry.
Speed and efficiency with Multi-Engine
Combining the fastest scanning engine with the ability to scan multiple sites at a time, in a multi-engine environment, allows users to scan thousands of sites in the least time possible. The Acunetix Multi-engine setup is suitable for Enterprise customers who need to scan more than 10 websites or web applications at the same time. This can be achieved by installing one Main Installation and multiple Scanning Engines, all managed from a central console.
Pause / Resume Feature
Acunetix Version 12 allows the user to pause a Scan and Resume the scan at a later stage. Acunetix will proceed with the scan from where it had left off. There is no need to save any scan state files or similiar – the information about the paused scan is automatically retained in Acunetix.
