Intruder's clear and intuitive interface removes common problems that often arise when businesses start using vulnerability-management software. Launching your first scan is easy and there is no steep learning curve when you start using Intruder.

The monthly scheduled scans and reports highlight any vulnerabilities consistently, and clearly indicate if any are critical or high - with clear advice on how to remediate them. The portal is easy to use and the UI makes it easy to navigate.

What our customers say

I have used multiple vulnerability scanning tools, most of which were single-purpose and took a long time to configure. With Intruder, I got relevant, actionable results the first time I scanned and I don't have to set up a patchwork of different tools to get good coverage.
