Acunetix Integration


Vulnerability Management integrated with Acunetix

Acunetix is an application security platform that automates elements of vulnerability management by scanning your organization’s assets for known vulnerabilities.

Nucleus integrates with Acunetix for the aggregation segment of the vulnerability management process. With vulnerabilities found by Acunetix scans, Nucleus can triage threats to your organization and aid in the analysis and remediation process. Nucleus also can uniformly aggregate vulnerability data from Acunetix with vulnerability data collected by other scanners, streamlining the vulnerability management process for organizations using different scanning tools across departments or assets.

Use Cases

Common security use cases for Acunetix with Nucleus include:

  • Gain unified visibility into application vulnerabilities.
  • Prioritize Application Vulnerability’s for Remediation based on business context and threat intelligence
  • Surface source code vulnerabilities for developer remediation that aligns with their existing development workflows
