Invicti Security
It is best suited for integrated security testing of applications which are hosted on web servers. The most important thing is the integration of DevSecOps which is crucial in today's fast paced environment of rapid development. The core of Acunetix is application scanning which is really great and I highly recommend this product to everyone

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is a great platform for visibility into your network, allowing you to see what your devices see. It is a great platform for Endpoint Detection and Response. It falls short at being a traditional antivirus/antimalware platform, as it is difficult to do any whitelisting and exclusions on your own.

  • Licensing between Defender for Endpoint and Servers is complicated.
  • Deployment has improved but is not really streamlined. There is no single installer available and no single way of deploying settings.
  • The Defender portal is rich in information but can be complicated to use.

The first time I tried to onboard my macOS endpoints to MDE I struggled for quite a bit. I had to reach out to Microsoft's MDE support team. The tech was very helpful in walking me through the steps during a screen share session

ZAP is a free tool, and adequate. But it is to that extent less friendly. I would not be as confident of the results and it definitely can't produce reports on par with Acunetix. There would be a lot of legwork on our end if we desired to switch to this tool.

in an overall protection sentinelone is providing better protection for us, but as it comes with subscription's limitation, we have to be really careful in managing the licenses, the MS Defender for endpoint is providing us a decent protection which we are not complaining about, why we chose them ? as mentioned, this is coming with our subscription

Return on Investment
Invicti Security
  • Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run.
  • Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration.
  • A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc.

  • Positive : Microsoft Defender for Endpoint offers sophisticated threat detection and response capabilities, putting it into use helps increase security. Reduced security incidents, data breaches, and related expenses may arise from this.
  • Positive : A more secure environment means less time and effort spent by IT and security teams on remediation and incident response.
  • False Positives: Like any security solution, false positives can occur, leading to unnecessary investigations and potential disruptions to business operations. This may require additional resources to manage.
