CriteriaFluid Attacks AdvancedFluid Attacks EssentialAppdome
AccuracyThe severity of the vulnerabilities is identified in 90% of the cases. (The accuracy is calculated based on the false positives, false negatives and the F-Score model). The severity of vulnerabilities is calculated using CVSSF = 4^(CVSS-4).Our SAST tool achieved the best possible result against the OWASP Benchmark (read the post here): A TPR (True Positive Rate) of 100% and an FPR (False Positive Rate) of 0%.It does not apply because they do not detect vulnerabilities; instead, they ensure security through layers/obfuscation.

Fast and automaticOur security assessments relying on manual techniques take longer than scans performed only by automated security testing tools.Fast scans performed by automated security testing tools.They do not perform tests. They rely on security through obscurity.
SupportOur standard service includes consulting and clarification by hackers through our platform for users to understand vulnerabilities.No additional charge for support.They offer support included in the service. If you want fast response time and fast resolution time, it has an additional cost.
Security trainingWe offer our service Talk To a Hacker to help developers and security specialist to solve questions and understand better vulnerabilities and how to remediate them. Also, we bring information about vulnerabilities on our Documentation, where our clients could search for more details of vulnerabilities and recommendations about how to remediate them.We bring information about vulnerabilities on our Documentation, where our clients could search for more details of vulnerabilities and recommendations about how to remediate and prevent them.They do not train nor provide information to remediate vulnerabilities.
RemediationOur clients could ask for help using our service Talk To a Hacker to try to understand how to remediate vulnerabilities.Using our IDE extension, our clients can get custom step-by-step fix guidance generated through AI.No
