Network Security

acunetix baner 765

Comprehensive security audits require detailed inspection of your public-facing network assets. Acunetix has integrated the popular OpenVAS scanner within Acunetix Online to provide a comprehensive perimeter network security scan that integrates seamlessly with your web application security testing, all from an easy to use simple cloud-based service.


Scan Perimeter Network Services

Insecure perimeter networks are still the cause of most data breaches. The perimeter is therefore one of the most important areas of your network to secure against vulnerabilities, misconfiguration and other security threats that could compromise security or availability of network services. Acunetix Online provides you with a perspective of your network’s perimeter just like an attacker would see it.

  • Discover open ports and running services.
  • Test for over 50,000 known network vulnerabilities and misconfigurations.

Testing for Network Vulnerabilities

Acunetix scans your network for vulnerabilities and presents results inside the Acunetix Online dashboard, from where a network security report can be easily generated.

  • Assesses security of routers, firewalls, switches and load balancers.
  • Tests for weak passwords on FTP, IMAP, database servers, POP3, Socks, SSH and Telnet.
  • Tests for DNS zone transfer, open recursive DNS and DNS cache poisoning attacks.
  • Tests for badly configured Proxy Servers, weak SNMP community strings and TLS/SSL ciphers, and more.

Detecting Network Security Mis-configurations

Acunetix Online can detect a wide array of network security mis-configurations that could lead to sensitive data disclosure, denial of service or even compromise of hosts. Acunetix Online tests for:

  • Anonymous FTP access and writable directories over FTP.
  • Badly configured Proxy Servers.
  • Weak SNMP community strings.
  • Weak TLS/SSL ciphers.
