Detectify vs. Nessus
The Pentest Tool You Deserve
Per month pricing
Surface monitoring and Application scanning start at $89 per month. Security testing is automated and does not provide a manual option.
Nessus provides its top package at $5,888.20 per year. It is built to scan the modern attack surfaces to find any vulnerabilities and protect the assets from the same.
No vetted scans
Does not provide vetted scans and thus cannot ensure results with zero false positive assurance.
Provides an unlimited number of vulnerability scans with scan behind login features.
However, the user experience leaves more to be desired in terms of vulnerability management.
Zero false positives ensured
Nessus provides a point-in-time vulnerability assessment solution that can easily identify vulnerabilities like missing patches, malware, and misconfigurations.
It offers a limited number of scans but ensures zero false positives with its scanning.
Does not provide an option for manual expert pentester assistance nor pentest certificate upon successful remediation of vulnerabilities identified.
Nessus mainly opts for thorough vulnerability assessments and as such does not provide manual expert pentesting or a pentest certificate.
Little remediation support
Detectify offers little in terms of remediation support to fix the vulnerabilities found.
This puts the finding of appropriate fixes and makes them solely responsible for the whole patching process.
The advanced remediation support is only available for an additional $472.
This comes with 24*365 access to phone, emails and chat support. It is a hefty price to pay on top of the price of the package.
Detectify can be integrated into the CI/CD project pipelines as it provides integrations with Jira, Trello, Slack, and Splunk.
CI/CD integration is possible with Nessus and it partners with IBM Security, Splunk, GitHub and GitLab.
