Intruder vs. Detectify integrations comparison

While Detectify has a solid set of integrations for DevOps teams, Intruder's list of integrations far outweighs Detectify's. Intruder's ticketing and notification integrations make vulnerability management easier for your entire organization.

Intruder seamlessly integrates with your AWS, Cloudflare, Azure or Google Cloud environments, automatically syncing targets so you can stay on top of your attack surface. It also integrates directly with compliance partners, like Drata and Vanta, to automatically send scan evidence on a regular basis.

Proactive threat response

When new vulnerabilities are discovered, Intruder will automatically scan your attack surface and alert you of any weaknesses. When new threats are discovered in the wild, our team of ethical hackers will manually scan your network for it, and if found, will provide you with immediate remediation advice.

Detectify doesn’t have this type of proactive threat response.
