Acunetix pioneered dynamic application security testing (DAST), was the first business-class web application security scanner on Linux, and is now the first on macOS as well.
“Many businesses select macOS because it is perceived as one of the most user-friendly and secure operating systems,” said Nicholas Sciberras, CTO of Acunetix.
“Since most business-class security tools are not available on macOS, administrators have to set up dedicated or virtual machines to run these tools, which is both frustrating and can be a security risk in itself,” he said.
Acunetix customers that use macOS have expressed appreciation for being able to scan natively with Acunetix; they report that it provides a smoother and faster scanning experience and more flexibility for small deployments.
“Acunetix scans on macOS are fast and accurate,” said Ondrej Kelka, IT Security Application & Infrastructure Consulting Expert at T-Mobile.
“Acunetix is the only web application vulnerability scanner that provides interactive application security testing (IAST) together with out-of-band scanning, malware scanning, and much more,” said Sciberras. “We offer an unparalleled range of capabilities and efficiency coupled with outstanding accuracy and depth of scans,” he said.
