Simple, scalable pricing
Security teams love to see pricing plans for cloud-based software that are comprehensible at a glance, scalable, and provide good value for money.
So, which is easiest to grasp? Pentest-Tools.com or Detectify?
Pentest-Tools.com offers a straightforward selection of pricing plans scaled according to your budget and business needs.
All four plans include our entire suite of tools: reconnaissance tools, web vulnerability scanners, web CMS scanners, network vulnerability scanners, and offensive tools.
Our pricing plans are:
Up to 10 targets
Up to 2 parallel scans
Up to 100 targets
Up to 5 parallel scans
Up to 1000 targets
Up to 10 parallel scans
In contrast, Detectify pricing is structured very differently, offering two products instead of plans – an application scanning product (€88 per month) and a surface monitoring product (€299 per month), with an additional Enterprise package (price on demand).
Pentest-Tools.com scalable plans are built around the maximum number of targets you can scan, along with a corresponding number of parallel scans.
While Detectify's scanning product also offers unlimited scans, it is only under a single scan profile for the monthly fee. This means that Detectify customers have to purchase and then customize scan profiles to create different configurations for the same or different targets. And, if they want further capability, they have to purchase the additional monitoring product.
The Pentest-Tools.com simpler, target-based pricing structure makes it easier for your security team to switch between plans and predict ongoing costs.
Each plan includes clear differences and escalating benefits in the areas of targets, features, reports, support, and billing.
With Pentest-Tools.com you don't need to allocate further technical human resources to handle configuration before your first scan, as with Detectify, and no continual configuration is required for different targets.
Extensive range of scanning tools and integrated features
If you're going to invest capital in a penetration testing solution, you'll want that software to deliver the most extensive scanning scope possible.
Pentest-Tools.com uncovers vulnerabilities and other security risks using a vast range of specialized scanners and other tools. So, how does Detectify's scanning and monitoring products measure up against the reach of Pentest-Tools.com's platform?
As well as a web vulnerability scanner that searches for the big hitters such as OS command injections or directory traversal and others that feature in the OWASP Top 10, our platform incorporates incisive, dedicated XSS and SQLi injection scanners .
Finally, Pentest-Tools.com also has built-in scanning tools to discover vulnerabilities in network services such as DNS, SSH, VPN, SMTP, FTP, and more.
Combine this powerful list of tools with our scan scheduling and you get a constantly up-to-date list of outdated services, operating systems, missing security patches, badly configured servers, and other persistent vulnerabilities.
In contrast, while Detectify's monitoring product covers infrastructure and domain issues, as well as CVEs and other functions, it must be purchased separately from their scanning product.
There's so much more to Pentest-Tools.com than API, web application, CMS and network and scanning. Our platform includes a set of reconnaissance tools that fully crawl and discover the entire attack surface of an organisation, its domain names, subdomains, virtual hosts, ports, and web technologies.
All our plans include a set of offensive tools that automatically exploit the common vulnerabilities and exposures defined in the CVE List. They also supply definitions and proof-of-concept exploits.
Pentest-Tools.com has an expansive suite of 25 integrated security testing tools, providing you with big-picture insights on the organisation’s security posture, conveniently accessible from a central dashboard. Here are 3 of the most popular tools on the platform:
Number and accuracy of vulnerabilities detected
You're thinking about the math, right? So, how many vulnerabilities does each platform detect? Are false positives included? And, so you have to wade through those too?
When looking at the statistics alone, Detectify tests for 2000+ vulnerabilities. Pentest-Tools.com detects many more, particularly if you scan for server-side vulnerabilities using our Network Scanner , which alone detects over 11,000 vulnerabilities! This scanner uses OpenVAS technology, the best open-source network security scanner available. Along with this, in-house Pentest-Tools.com security researchers have written custom Sniper modules for highly exploitable vulnerabilities.
But, the crucial question is: How precise and reliable are these findings? And, do I need to verify each one manually?
You know the score. False positives drain your time, money and energy.
Both Pentest-Tools.com and Detectify claim to deliver vulnerabilities with very low false positive rates. Both allow you to tag false positive findings so they will automatically be marked as such in future reports. Or, you can exclude them completely, so they will not show up in future scans or vulnerability counts. And both use false positive reports to implement future improvements.
But, unlike Detectify, the Pentest-Tools.com customer success and development teams provide a personal response to all false positive reports. And if you need a dedicated penetration testing service, we can supply that and manually validate each finding to guarantee zero false positives.
Advanced editable and white label reports
Both Pentest-Tools.com and Detectify enable downloadable reports in multiple formats. However, if you're offering pentesting services, you need enhanced options to deliver a more customized reporting service to your clients.
Pentest-Tools.com offers advanced editable reports and a white label option, thanks to our pentest report generator tool.
From Pentest-Tools.com's Advanced plan upwards, you can export reports in an editable format (.docx). Prior to downloading, you can filter findings by date range or risk level and group them by target or vulnerability. You can take it even further by selecting to download an editable report. This enables you to collate information from other sources and produce a more customized report for your clients.
Our more comprehensive plans have an additional white label feature with options to upload a custom logo and configure email fields settings. This means your reports are professionally presented with your own branding instead of the Pentest-Tools.com logo, along with a personalized email, and sent directly from the platform.
If you've uncovered other vulnerabilities by other means, you can add manual findings to the target. These will be included in your downloaded report along with all other findings.
Pentest-Tools.com becomes your central hub for reporting comprehensively on all vulnerability findings.
After sales support
Given the highly technical nature of pentesting software and running scheduled scans around the clock, you want to know that support is always on, right? So, who comes out top when it comes to this essential aspect of customer service?
Both Detectify and Pentest-Tools.com deliver online support in the form of a knowledge base, blogs posts with tips and via email. To reinforce this, Pentest-Tools.com provides FAQs, platform tutorials, technical walkthroughts and pentesting guides.
Our support centre guarantees a reply to all messages within 24-48 hours, or you can use the chat window instead to talk to us in real time. In addition, you can run free light scans directly from our home page to detect and start fixing those high risk vulnerabilities in order to test our platform's powerful capabilities before you purchase.
It's customary that the support level available to you increases along with the level of plan you purchase. With Detectify's Enterprise package, you receive additional support, such as onboarding training, configuration support and web security training.
With Pentest-Tools, our premium support begins earlier in your journey, with the Teams and Enterprise plans. You receive a guaranteed answer to any technical or commercial query within 48 hours from a professional who is technically skilled to help you solve the problem, not simply record an issue or complaint.
Focus on maintaining and scaling quality results
Although Pentest-Tools.com delivers more, one of our core company values is quality, not merely quantity of results.
This refers both to the robust nature of our security testing platform and the penetrating details of the results.
It also means we strive for the highest quality in all the company activities that surround our product, from the ethical quality of our security research to the dedicated and personal nature of our customer support.
