Pros: Based on the experience of exploitation the most visible advantages are:
- Continuous scanning is a perfect option because you can always be aware of some vulnerabilities while working;
- Interface is quite friendly;
- Statistics is always there for you. You can trace the evolvement in web security;
- The function of scheduling the scanning is very helpful as well.
In general, this security service could satisfy the needs of the modern market. Taking into account my personal experience I would recommend this service. The priority for me was security and the accuracy compliance, so I should say that Acunetix did its job. I should say that Acunetix is a very practical device that once bought you would not regret. The number one task is the security check of web applications. It identifies weak spots in before they could be used against you by hackers. If your business is quite big one and you do care about your security and reliability you should definitely check out this service.

Cons: I noted only some small drawbacks:
- More functions should be automated;
- I noticed that while this service is doing a scan of a lot of different domains, it could cause some inconveniencies.
- The support team of this service is quite slow at responding, therefore I wish it could be more attentive to clients.

Comments: Good thing for a web application pentesting, can give You insight of a present vulnerabilities. Would recommend using in tandem with infrastructure scanner (like Nessus) to create a complete testing solution. Also presence of continous scanning and scheduler could be used for a regular security assesment of Your web applications.

Pros: Ease of use, good customer support, very insightful reports (especially Developer raport), good vulnerability management. Also continous scanning option is an interesting thing for having continous security awareness of Your vulnerability level. Also login sequence recorder is an awesome tool.

Cons: Not a lot of scan options to configure - especially in comparison to Nessus - every check is done in default, You can't choose specifically which test is done in selected scan, only the type of scan (full, high-risk vulnerabilities, xss, sqli, weak passwords, crawl only ) or technology in which the scanned web app is written.

Thank you for your feedback ¿ we¿re glad that Acuneix is working for you.

Regarding your comment about choosing what to scan for ¿ you can already do this in Acunetix, although the feature is slightly hidden away in Settings > Scan Types. Here you can create your own custom Scan Types, and you will be able to choose which vulnerabilities to check for. When creating a new custom Scan Type, you can filter the vulnerability checks from the top right hand corner of the page.

Remember that you can also easily retest for a specific vulnerability identified in a previous scan.
