London, UK – May 2019 – Acunetix, the pioneer in automated web application security software, has announced that all versions of the Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner now support network security scanning. Network security scans are possible thanks to the seamless integration of Acunetix with the powerful OpenVAS security solution. Until now, network security scanning functionality was available only in Acunetix Online.
“No matter the size of your business, you use multiple security measures to alleviate different types of risks. Your security strategy must always include both web security scans and network security scans. And it makes it so much easier and much more efficient if you can do the two together using a single integrated tool,” said Nicolas Sciberras, CTO.
There are many advantages of running network security scans in Acunetix. Having a single integrated dashboard with both web and network vulnerabilities gives the best possible risk visibility and saves a lot of time and effort. Network scans may also benefit from other Acunetix features, such as issue tracker integration and comprehensive reporting.
