What our customers say...

Safe option?

Safe defaults

Other vendors use "safe" option in their software, to limit possible harming tests. We think that should be implied, and ensure that all tests are safe by default.

Don't touch!

Most of our tests only gather information. This keeps application logs clean, while being able to do more in-depth scans at the same time. No more guesswork from the network!

Detect weaknesses before attackers do!
