ComGuard Debuts Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner 8 Beta

By Raju Shanbhag December 23, 2011

Looking to better optimize web security in the Middle East region, ComGuard has unveiled the latest version of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner 8 Beta.

To quickly detect vulnerabilities, Acunetix WVS can automatically pinpoint URL parameters and manipulate them. This technology is not present in any other competing vulnerability scanner. In addition, WVS 8 can automatically interpret rewrite rules, without requiring any manual input using the web application’s web.config file. With this solution, it is now possible to define custom HTTP headers to be used during automated scans, the company stated in a press release.

Mohammad Mobasseri, senior vice president, ComGuard FZ LLC, said in a statement, “The version 8 of the Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner has been optimized to make life easier at every stage of a security scan. WVS is easier to use for web admins and security analysts alike with enhanced automation, ability to save scan settings as a template to avoid reconfiguration, and multiple instance support for simultaneous scans of several websites. WVS 8 also ushers in a new exciting co-operation between Acunetix and Imperva.”

Allowing the user to scan multiple websites and opening up further support for multi-user scenarios on the same server/workstation, Acunetix WVS 8 can be re-launched as multiple instances on the same machine.

Recently, the company extended its presence within the Middle East with the launch of two award-winning products from GFI Software including GFI WebMonitor and GFI MailArchiver. The Internet monitoring and Exchange server e-mail archiving, management and compliance software is primarily directed at small to medium-sized enterprises. GFI WebMonitor allows administrators to monitor and control employee Internet access in real-time, while the GFI MailArchiver helps administrators maintain an archive of all corporate e-mail correspondence.
