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

  • The Venafi platform is constantly evolving through its upgrades which occur every quarter to meet client's specific needs. This is an outstanding model however the documentation that follows the upgrades could be more thorough.

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.

Each public certificate provider has their own flavor of certificate automation, but they are not that flexible and only work with their own products. Certified Security Solutions CMS is a lightweight tool that directly competes with Venafi, but is not nearly as robust or feature risk. This is a straight forward management solution that is best fitted for the smaller companies.

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.

  • An outage is a very devastating event to any large corporation and can cost millions. Venafi's ability to prevent these outages has proven to be a great return on investment for our environment and has helped protect the bottom line.
  • Venafi automates certificate installation with an included feature to schedule the install in advance. This is a great benefit of the tool because it eliminates human error and prevents any forgotten or overlooked certificates to be renewed. After installation Venafi will also validate the certificate to confirm that it has been installed properly. This shows just how thorough this tool really is.
  • Security compliance is of the utmost importance in a large organization for auditing purposes and certificate security policies but at times can prove to be difficult to enforce. Venafi has proven to play a pivotal role in enforcing these policies in our environment.
