Detectify vs. Intruder

Let’s find out what happens when we pit them against each other. It should give you a different perspective and help you choose the right tool for your security testing needs.
Detectify vs. Intruder
The Pentest Tool You Deserve
Pricing is on the higher side
The surface monitoring plan by Detectify comes for $289/month. It strengthens the security of your internet-facing assets and detects vulnerabilities and weaknesses.
The functionality and user experience afforded by Detectify for its price are decent.
Better value for money
Intruder’s pro-plan comes for $163/month. It provides unlimited ad hoc scans, internal and external scanning, network view, and integrations.
Intruder brings a better value for the money, though not by far. You can unlock the manual pentest element for an elevated cost.
Powerful scanner but weak UI
Detectify offers visibility into your application and network assets and helps you run customized scans at different stages of app development.
It is a fine tool for monitoring attack surfaces across applications and running scans. However, when it comes to vulnerability analysis and management, the user experience could have been better.
A lot of users have pointed to the UI as a weakness.
Scans limited targets
Intruder uses Tenable Nessus scanning engine to help you run internal and external vulnerability scans along with automatic emerging threat scans
Intruder is a dedicated vulnerability scanning tool but the scans are limited to the targets that you point to.
Detectify does not have a penetration testing feature. It engages ethical hackers to gather knowledge about emerging threats but doesn’t offer pentesting or ethical hacking services
Pentest for a higher price
Intruder’s Vanguard feature includes an extended vulnerability discovery that involves manual pentesters.
However, it comes at a higher price point which is not disclosed on the website.
No remediation support
Detectify doesn’t offer much in the way of remediation support.
Hence, it can get tricky for a business to cleanse the vulnerabilities before they’re affected.
Little to no remediation support
Intruder too doesn’t have a remediation support program.
It is a little strange considering Intruder offers a penetration testing service.
Integration through API
Detectify integrates with Slack, Jira, and Splunk. You can use their API to connect the tool with your CI/CD pipeline. The procedure could have been easier.
Integration through API
Integrates with GitHub, Slack, Jira, etc through API.
It’s quite easy to integrate Intruder with your CI/CD pipeline. However, the continuous scanning and feedback features lose edge owing to the lack of remediation support and weak reports.
