Acunetix announced the release of the cutting edge AcuSensor Technology with the launch of version 6.0 of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner. AcuSensor Technolog consists of sensors that are strategically placed inside the web application source code and that send information to the web application scanner on how the applications handle the input during a scan.  
Other key features available with the latest version of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner (WVS) are the Blind SQL Injector Tool and the Port Scanner and Network Alerts.

The Blind SQL Injector Tool is ideal for penetration testers as it is an automated database data extraction tool that allows further manual testing for SQL Injections; while with the Port Scanner and Network Alerts it is now possible to perform port scans against the web server, so that when open ports are found Acunetix WVS does complex network level security checks against the service that runs on that port.

Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner ensures website security by automatically checking for SQL injection, Cross site scripting and other vulnerabilities. It gives security experts access to a specialized cross site scanning tool that allows them to evaluate their web sites for these threats. The scanner also scans AJAX and Web 2.0 technologies for vulnerabilities, gives detailed reports that enable businesses to meet legal and regulatory compliances, analyses against Google Hacking Database and features other advance tools that permit fine tuning of web application security checks.

Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner is available in four editions: a Free edition, a Small Business edition, an Enterprise Edition for businesses operating more than one website, and a Consultant Edition.
