About Acunetix

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. Acunetix 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 customers include: Bank of China, US Army, Hewlett Packard, Telstra, AmSouth Bank, Fujitsu, San Diego County Credit Union, US Department of Agriculture, California Department of Justice, US Air Force, Wescom Credit Union, State of Virginia Gov dep, US Geological Service.

Acunetix is a privately held company with its offices in Malta and the UK. It is a Microsoft Certified Partner and forms part of a group of software companies which includes 2X Software, a developer of thin client software, and 3CX, a developer of IP PBX software for Windows.
