Invicti Enterprise On-Premises

Invicti Enterprise is available as an On-Demand and On-Premises solution.

Invicti Enterprise On-Premises runs on your servers and network, so you need to update it manually. The latest version offers new security checks and improvements to enhance your security.

This topic explains how to update Invicti Enterprise On-Premises. In order to install and configure the On-Premises, see Installing and Configuring Invicti Enterprise On-Premises.

While updating Invicti Enterprise On-Premises, it is recommended to pause any scans.

It is strongly recommended that you back up your database before the update process. For further information, see this Microsoft document.

If Windows requires you to restart the system during the installation or update, please restart the system.

The Authentication Verifier Service requires .NET 5.0 or .NET 6.0.
If they are not available on the target system, the installer will ask you to install one of them on the target system.

The db_owner permission is required during the installation and updating. The db_datareader and db_datawriter roles are enough for the daily operation.
