Since I’m on the subject of talking about security scanners, here’s a link to an article I wrote a couple of years ago that’s still very relevant. Check it out:
What to look for in a Web application security testing tool
Some of what I say in this piece supports my stance in the previous blog that you cannot automate this stuff and assume you’ve done your due diligence.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
