Just to complement N-Stalker is not new (10 years old company)

N-Stalker® was created in April 2000 by information security
technology specialists, aiming at providing solutions to protect
corporations and individuals against digital threats that affect
information systems. Since then, our research & development laboratory
has been working non-stop on security researches, producing web attack
detection controls for the past years.

In the beginning it was released as N-Stealth .

I recommend Acunetix. We have been using those apps for a long time
now
and It does everything you said you need. It can be kind of
aggressive
though.

 I also recommend NStalker. It's kinda new but it helps to compare
the
results with the Acunetix.

Hello pen-test readers,

I'm looking for recommendations on an easy-to use web application
scanner. It doesn't need to be free. It can be an application or
server-based. I'd like to avoid appliances.

I need one that can do the below.
* handle form, cookie, HTTP, and NTLM authentication
* provides reporting and logging in a sane format
* easy to configure, launch and run.
* test HTML, HTTP headers, script and very basic SSL problems

I'm not worried about missing critical but hard-to-find
vulnerabilities or issues in various browser plugins. In terms of
accuracy, the tool should catch the most common issues (xss, plain
text credentials, injection, etc) quickly.

Thanks for the opinions!!
