Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner 9.5 Build 20140902

Check for web vulnerabilities using a powerful, dedicated scanner that is able to identify possible weaknesses of the web server
Keeping personal and important business information private is just as important as having a strong defense against the many threats that may impact onto the functioning of a simple home computer. When the security needs involve protecting a web server, there are several possibilities to add supplemental safety measures.

First of all, the administrator should assess the current state of the network security and to do so, a utility like Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner may prove a gem. Mainly aimed at web applications and related content, the software is able to scan for and detect a wide range of exposures, many of which are common to several environments.

For instance, with Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner it is possible to find out if a system is exposed to various types of code injection and execution, as well as to the widespread cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The program is also able to inspect folder permissions and discover potentially unsafe HTTP methods that may be active on the target web server. Port scanning is another activity you can try with this application because if it discovers open ports, Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner will immediately start testing in-depth the network security starting from that possible point of intrusion.

You can also check out the data that is being sent by your web apps. For this purpose you have at your disposal a HTTP Sniffer and a HTTP Fuzzer to intercept, capture and modify the traffic, as well as check for dangerous flaws that would allow for a buffer overflow attack.

Since it is packed with features and is accompanied by powerful technologies, Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner is a solid contender insofar as web server testing and network security examination are concerned. Quite user-friendly and not at all difficult to use, this software is indeed one that deserves a closer look if you have certain doubts that your environment is foolproof.
