Likelihood to Recommend

Kali Linux

The Kali [Linux] is not a cup of tea for everyone and not well suited for personal computer hence I recommend only relevant people in my organization and other contacts to prefer it for management and monitoring of information security, network security and penetration testing. I also recommend the mobile developers of organization to use it for reverse engineering of APK files to learn advance development methodologies.

Alternatives Considered

Kali Linux

Different suite of tools and need of specialists to be familiar with the tools to use the best features. Most of the users will be familiar with Kali Linux compared with Blackbox. But easy to switch between the two and is more to complement with each other on the areas needed to be tested.

Haven't done a direct comparison for Verodin and other similar products. But I compared Verodin port scanning with Nmap. Verodin provides an intuitive result.
