We didn't start Intruder to re-invent the wheel. There were already lots of vulnerability scanners out there, and they all had a lot in common. In fact, when it comes down to the actual checks they perform, there isn't a huge difference between them, especially at the top end of the spectrum.
That's why we set out to do something different, a simple, proactive scanner that's designed to worry about your security, so you don't have to.
Of course when it comes to security, simplicity isn't always a good thing. That's why under the hood we use an enterprise-grade scanning engine, one that's used by big corporations and governments all over the world. We couldn't have built that from scratch, there are many thousands of checks and tests going back for decades that we wouldn't want to recreate, but do want to make sure we have in the arsenal, just in case.
We may not always use the same scanner under the hood, our platform is designed to work with any scanning engine, so it doesn't make much sense to talk about which one we use here. However, what does matter is that we promise to always choose the best scanning engine that gives our customers the enterprise-grade security they deserve, with the simplicity they expect.
