Combating the web vulnerability threat
Securing a company's web applications is today's most overlooked aspect of
securing the enterprise. Web application hacking is on the rise with as many as
75% of cyber attacks done at web application level or via the web. Most
corporations have secured their data at the network level, but have overlooked
the crucial step of checking whether their web applications are vulnerable to
attack. Web applications, which often have a direct line into the company's
most valuable data assets, are online 24/7, completely unprotected by a
firewall and therefore easy prey for attackers.
Acunetix was founded with this threat in mind. We realised the only way to
combat web site hacking was to develop an automated tool that could help
companies scan their web applications for vulnerabilities. In July 2005,
Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner was released - a tool that crawls the
website for vulnerabilities to SQL injection, cross site scripting and other
web attacks before hackers do.
The Acunetix development team consists of highly experienced security developers
who have each spent years developing network security scanning software prior
to starting development on Acunetix WVS. The management team is backed by years
of experience marketing and selling security software.
Acunetix is a privately held company with its
offices in Malta, US and the UK.
