In-depth checking for SQL Injection and XSS Vulnerabilities

Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner rigorously tests for hundreds of web application vulnerabilities including SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting (XSS). SQL Injection is one of the oldest and most prevalent of software bugs; it allows attackers to modify SQL queries in order to gain access to data in the database. XSS attacks allow attackers to execute malicious scripts inside your visitors’ browser; possibly leading to impersonation of that user. Acunetix is the industry leader in detecting the largest variety of SQL Injection and XSS vulnerabilities, including Out-of-band SQL Injection and DOM-based XSS.

AcuSensor Technology Guarantees Low False Positives

Acunetix includes unique AcuSensor Technology that analyzes code as it gets executed, resulting in higher detection rate, and importantly elimination of false positives. Furthermore, AcuSensor technology is able to indicate where the vulnerability is in the code and report debug information. AcuSensor not only finds more vulnerabilities, but will save valuable time for your security and development teams.

DeepScan Technology Scans Most Content

A fundamental process is the scanner’s ability to properly crawl an application, no matter what web technology it’s written in. Acunetix features DeepScan Technology; an HTML5 crawling and scanning engine that fully replicates user interaction inside of a browser by executing and analyzing JavaScript. DeepScan allows accurate crawling of AJAX-heavy client-side Single Page Applications (SPAs) that leverage technologies such as AngularJS, EmberJS and Google Web Toolkit. It can understand and interact with complex web technologies such as: AJAX, SOAP/ WDSL, SOAP/WCF, WADL, XML, JSON, Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and CRUD operations. In addition, DeepScan analyzes web applications developed in Ruby on Rails and Java Frameworks.

The Acunetix innovative technologies include:

  • DeepScan Technology allows accurate crawling of AJAX-heavy client-side Single Page Applications (SPAs) that leverage complex technologies such as SOAP/WDSL, SOAP/WCF, WADL, XML, JSON, Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and CRUD operations.
  • Industry’s most advanced and robust SQL Injection and XXS testing, including advanced detection of DOM-based XXS.
  • A Login Sequence Recorder that allows the automatic crawling and scanning of complex password protected areas including multi-step, Single Sign-On (SSO) and OAuth-based websites.
  • AcuSensor Technology allows accurate scanning further reducing the false positive rate, by combining black box scanning techniques with feedback from

its sensors placed inside the source code.
