Websecurify Suite Vs. Desktop Scanners
The online Suite is a radically different value proposition, which enables security to scale across many verticals.
Websecurify Suite is a cross-platform, multi-user web application security testing platform which includes scanners, fuzzers and numerous other security testing utilities.
Desktop web application security scanners are, well, just scanners. They come with complex licensing agreements and locked down features which require special upgrades.
Websecurify Suite is cross-platform. It runs on Windows, Mac, Linux and more. We want our products to be helpful to you regardless of your OS preferences. And when you decide to change to another OS, our tools will simply follow you.
All desktop web application security scanners are locked to a single platform - Windows. Well, Windows is not the only option any more. In fact, most of the cutting-edge web development is done on Linux and Mac these days.
The Suite is multi-user and cross-platform. You can use multiple machines with the same account. Your work laptop and your personal laptop do not require separate licenses like desktop-only solutions. We want you to be productive as much as possible.
Desktop web application security scanners are locked to a single user/workstation. To run them on multiple machines you will require multiple licenses. It could get quite expensive and rather inconvenient at times when you need to get work done.
The Suite puts no limits and artificial restrictions on how many web applications and services you can to test. It is unlimited in every way imaginable. Our core value is to provide great products that are truly helpful to you and your team.
All desktop web security scanning vendors provide cheap licenses that are locked to 1 up to 3 applications max. If you need to test an application outside of your license agreement than you are in through situation. You simply can't.
Websecurify Suite is constantly updated. Every time you are online, you will be using the latest and greatest version. Updates and fixes are applied on daily basis multiple times per day.
Desktop application security scanners are often outdated due to the long and tiresome update mechanism and complex licensing model. Your updates are coming next year upon renewal.
