    Product(s): Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner (WVS)

    Easy to get started hard to master, analysis can a take long time if not set up properly.

    Overall Comment

    I have been working with Acunetix WVS for many years and is still one of the best tools when it comes to web application assessment. At first glance, it may look like basic but don't get fooled by the interface there is a quite powerful pentest tool underneath. The easy to use interface makes it great when it comes to introducing new people to web assessment and pentesting and the reporting software it comes with help with the overall communication of the different issues found. The downside comes with scheduling and parallel analysis, the scheduling works through a web interface and does not let the user see the partial results until is done, this would be quite useful for those times the scanning is taking too long and you need to find a reason.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Depending on the use you will give to the tool be aware of the amount of multiple scans that can be launched at once. Make sure to configure the scanning profiles properly based on the technologies you want to analyze, otherwise you can find yourself waiting for weeks for the results.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Speed, quality and price, the tool is flexible enough to be used by individuals doing a simple assessment or companies monitoring the state and security of their internal and external websites.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    The scheduling interface, the fact that you cannot see partial results until the analysis is finished.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Dealing with parallel scanning we learned that is better to have two instances of the tool in two different servers, this deals a bit with the scheduling issues of not being able to retrieve running scans into the main interface.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Quick support and contact from the vendor in case of errors or issues with the software.
