Acunetix releases a plugin for Jenkins

I just got this mail from Damian Fearnley the other day announcing that Acunetix has just released a plugin supporting integration with Jenkins:


We are pleased to announce the release of the Acunetix Jenkins Plugin. This plugin for Jenkins, the popular open source Continuous Integration (CI) automation platform, allows development and operations teams to identify and track web application vulnerabilities early on in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), and crucially, before they make it into production.

The Acunetix Jenkins Plugin integrates seamlessly with the Jenkins’ build process, triggering automated Acunetix scans as part of the web application’s build process inside of the Jenkins CI platform.

Use it to:

  • Trigger Acunetix scans from within Jenkins upon each build.
  • Trigger Acunetix scans with built-in or custom Scan Types to only scan for specific vulnerabilities.
  • Configure Jenkins to fail a build (and optionally abort the scan) as soon as a specific threat-level (high, medium or low severity) is reached.
  • Automatically generate reports saved within Jenkins.

How to obtain the Acunetix Jenkins Plugin
The Acunetix Jenkins Plugin is available to all Acunetix Enterprise customers. The Acunetix plugin can be downloaded from the Jenkins plugins repository. Read how to install the plugin from here.

Should you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards
