Nottingham, UK April 20, 2020 – Value-added IT security distributor Alpha Generation Distribution (part of the QBS Technology Group) has announced a new partnership with Acunetix, a global leader in web vulnerability scanning.

Trusted by demanding customers including Fortune 500 companies, Acunetix delivers a dedicated, fully-automated web vulnerability scanner that reduces the risk posed by websites and web applications.

For Alpha Generation, this represents a key addition to a comprehensive portfolio of complementary vendors.

“We’re delighted to be working with the team at Acunetix,” says Stuart Reay, Managing Director at Alpha Generation Distribution. “Our network of resellers have highlighted web security as a vital area for cyber security investment and Acunetix is the best in its class. The technology is sophisticated, using it is simple, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to drive adoption and success in the UK channel.”

The first platform of its kind, Acunetix’ web vulnerability scanner boasts the highest detection rate in the industry. It combines automated vulnerability scanning against a database of 6500+ vulnerabilities with clear reporting and prioritisation, helping customers solve the most significant issues first – and tackle risk where it really counts.

Acunetix also integrates with a range of popular platforms including issue trackers and Continuous Integration (CI) I tools, bringing clarity to software developers at every stage of the lifecycle. As a result, they can eliminate dangerous errors and bugs before they go live.

Acunetix is available on-premise or online with flexible per-website pricing, with tiered packages to suit varied ways of working and development processes.

For Acunetix, the new partnership is a way to embed in the UK channel and connect with Alpha Generation’s established network of resellers.

“We are looking forward to working with Alpha Generation and believe our alliance will further strengthen our presence in the UK market,” said Kevin Abela, Vice President of Global Channel Sales for Acunetix.
