CriteriaFluid Attacks AdvancedFluid Attacks EssentialAstra*
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%.They do not provide information about TPR or FPR. They say their "Vetted Reports" are those reviewed by their security engineers to ensure there are no false positives.

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.Slow scans performed by automated security testing tools and slower security assessments relying on manual techniques.
SupportOur standard service includes consulting and clarification by hackers through our platform for users to understand vulnerabilities.No additional charge for support.They have three support plans: Scanner, Expert and Pentest. The customer must pay an additional fee to switch from one plan to another with greater benefits. Their common support channel is email.
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.**_**

Correlation of attacksBy combining vulnerabilities A and B, we discover a new, higher impact vulnerability C, which may compromise more records.**_****_**
Safe modeWe can operate in safe mode, avoiding being detected by the Security Operations Center (SOCs) or affecting service availability in productive environments.**_**Their scanner sends controlled requests so as not to generate downtime. In addition, their pentest does not stress applications and does not perform DDoS testing.
Type of evidenceOur evidence is delivered in (a) PDF executive reports, (b) XLS/PDF technical reports, (c) animated screenshots (GIFs) of the attack, (d) code pieces, (e) attack screenshots with explanatory annotations, and (f) system’s security status illustrated by graphics and metrics.Our evidence is delivered in (a) PDF executive reports, (b) XLS/PDF technical reports, (c) code pieces, (d) attack screenshots with explanatory annotations, and (e) system’s security status illustrated by graphics and metrics.Their evidence is delivered in (a) PDF executive reports and (b) PDF reports listing all vulnerabilities found.
ExploitationWe can do exploitation as long as we have (a) an available environment and (b) the appropriate authorization.**_**___
