Recognized for ability to execute and completeness of vision

Invicti Security, the parent company of Netsparker & Acunetix, has been included in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST). We believe this recognition speaks to our dedication to providing our customers with innovative web security solutions that are truly scalable for organizations of all sizes.

More than 3,000 customers around the world trust Invicti to secure their web applications and reduce their risk through dynamic and interactive security testing. Our consistent financial and product growth affirms the market’s need for products to fill the gap left by the less-differentiated offerings of SAST-focused vendors.

Invicti’s products, Netsparker and Acunetix, approach the application security testing market in a very different way than our competitors. We believe that our approach is at the vanguard of how application security should and will evolve. We are pleased to be recognized by Gartner in our very first submission to the Magic Quadrant and Invicti will continue to disrupt this category.

At Invicti we know that security is not a barrier to web app development, but the key to driving progress and unlocking innovation in the digital space. That is what drives us to inject security into every step of the SDLC process. This designation validates our success and commitment to that cause.
