Simplicity vs complexity

Vulnerability scanning and management is hugely important, but it can be hugely complicated, and time consuming. This is particularly true with Qualys, the range of features is vast, but this can be overwhelming.

Intruder is one of the best Qualys competitors because it provides a simple and clean interface that helps you quickly identify weaknesses and track results from your vulnerability scans. Configuring scans and getting them running is as simple as a single click, and issues are automatically tracked over time.

Save time, without sacrificing quality

Intruder's focus is always on saving you time, that's why we run proactive scans for the latest discovered threats, and interpret the results from commercial scanning engines to give you a prioritized list of actionable issues.

Intruder uses the same underlying scanning engine as big banks and governments worldwide, so you can benefit from a huge number of high quality security checks like Qualys provides, but without the complexity.

Whenever new vulnerabilities are discovered, Intruder runs proactive checks on your systems, to make sure you're not affected. This means no more monitoring CVE lists, or constantly reading cyber security news, then logging in to Qualys to run a scan. Intruder is always monitoring, and will notify you when you have a problem.

Get intelligent, prioritized results

Unlike traditional vulnerability scanners like Qualys, Intruder interprets the results it gets back from the scanning engine based on context. This helps you prioritize the actionable security issues which will have a real impact.

No more missing important issues buried in the noise of scanner results.

Accessible cyber security

Security can no longer sit solely with cyber security teams. Many organizations don't have the resources to hire security experts, and those that do can't hope to keep track of all their developers' activity 24/7.

All Intruder's issues are clearly explained, making it usable and accessible for non-security experts, and cloud integrations allow monitoring development environments better than ever before.

What our customers say

"I have used multiple vulnerability scanning tools in the past. Most of them were single-purpose and had a lot of extraneous output that took a long time to configure to get what we needed. With Intruder, I got relevant, actionable results the very first time I scanned, and it's a one-stop shop. I don't have to set up a patchwork of different tools to get good coverage on vulnerability scanning." Read full review
