How does Fluid Attacks' service compare to Synopsys'? The following comparison table allows you to understand how both providers perform on different attributes that may be essential to meet your company’s cybersecurity needs.

CriteriaFluid Attacks AdvancedFluid Attacks EssentialSynopsys
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%.Coverity, Synopsys' SAST tool, obtained an accuracy value of 63.3%, according to a study with its own benchmark. Another study attributes to it an accuracy of 37%. They reduce false positives and negatives with the help of their other products and services.

Correlation of attacksBy combining vulnerabilities A and B, we discover a new, higher impact vulnerability C, which may compromise more records._They do not refer to this kind of correlation.
Safe modeWe can operate in safe mode, avoiding being detected by the Security Operations Center (SOCs) or affecting service availability in productive environments.__
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/CSV/HTML executive reports and (b) customized reports.
