Penetration Testing

Postby diana » Mon Dec 24, 2012 3:52 am

Hi,
I want to know about any cloud based penetration testing services that can be carried out for my web applications.
If anyone can help me out in finding a appropriate vendor, that would be appreciated.

The most commonly used ones are probably Nessus and Retina.

There's a lot of cheaper and even free scanners that will do a decent job in most cases though. Nikto to name just one.

Keep in mind that there's no real substitute for an experienced human pen tester though.

There is still an open source and free strain of it called OpenVAS I think.

Well yeah you could really split hairs comparing the open source fork to the current nessus. I'd probably put them in their own categories now. Time must be flying by. I remember using nessus free over a few years ago. Actually, now that im thinking about it. It was a pay service only if you wanted the updated plugins. Otherwise you got old ones. One thing to note is you usually can still get an old version of nessus from your repo.

Thanks for your feedback Thor and Fire.

I heard about iViZ Security which is performing extremely good as they are industry's first cloud-based penetration testing service for web applications.
If you can provide me more details about it, then that would be helpful.

I don't have any experience with it, so I can't say.
