Secure your website for peace of mind

I've had sites hacked in the past. Some were easy to get back by using a site backup. A couple of sites were more complicated to clean and restore. Since then I am paranoid about locking down my sites and making it as hard as possible for hackers. Even small, low-volume sites can be hacked and a PITA to fix. Beagle Security is the next step in securing your site. Good hosting, security plugins are the first step. Cloudflare is another layer of protection... but is that enough? Beagle Security will let you know. You may be surprised at how many vulnerabilities your site has.

Pros

Easy to use - select your website, click a button, sit back and let Beagle try and hack your site. I am impressed with the number of vulnerabilities Beagle found on what I thought was a secured website. The site is on Cloudways, using Cloudflare, Wordfence, and MalCare... yet Beagle found 22 vulnerabilities - 3 of which are critical. Not only did it find the vulnerabilities, but it also gave detailed explanations and instructions on how to fix them.

Cons

Because of the deep scan and timed scans not to disrupt the site or use resources, it took over 15 hours to complete the first scan. Not a negative... just in a "I want it now" world, I got impatient. Some of the suggested fixes were a little technical for me, although Beagle did its best to dumb it down for me. The cost and limited scans are also a con. My websites are not critical sites. If I had a site that was critical, the cost would not be an issue. I'd want the best to lock down my site and Beagle does that.

A serious arsenal in every agency's security suite.

Web security is one of the most challenging areas when comes to building websites and maintaining them for clients. While we have protocols on mitigating attacks, but that time is already too late when the damage is done or ongoing. Beagle Security provides assurance from a different angle by finding loopholes and lets us know of them, so we can patch them to drastically reduce potential attacks, this saves us time and provides confort to clients knowing their site is in good hands.

Pros

Our team are not experienced to perform Penetration Tests on our own, but we are capable of implementing relevant fixes , this app take that load off and performs all the needed tests and provides a detailed report on what we have missed out. This allows us to safely implement the right measures for our client sites to further secure their businesses and their trust in us.

Cons

While implementaion and executions are effortless,we only hope the team comes up with a way to allow us to perform remidial tests or targetted tests on previously tested sites to verify our fixes without consuming too much credits. But by itself we are able to manage them, this app has a bright future ahead of them.

A really powerful tool

It's a good tool to check for potential security issues. It helps you identify security risks in your website/app and ensures that your data is safe from hackers.

Pros

I would say that it is the best web application security tool currently available on the market. It is backed by a great team. I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about web application security.

Cons

Depends on your plan, the test availability is too little.

Reasons for Choosing Beagle Security

I am not a developer, but I have to make sure that the website is protected from security breaches. This tool is easy to use, even for non-technical users. With just a few clicks, you can review all the vulnerabilities and potential threats to your website. The web app also integrates easily with other development tools, which makes it ideal for non-tech people to use it.

A must-have security audit for serious web businesses

Website security is like cleaning your garage. You know you should, but won't actually do it until the whole mess falls over you, and you find that old can of dead crickets you bought last summer for fishing is now all over you. Most web owners who start a website won't get hacked when there isn't any traffic on their site. But as soon as a site gets mildly successful, it becomes a target. The more you go on without implementing security measures, the harder the pain will be when you actually get hacked. When you have active customers on your site, having your site go down for a few minutes, might cost you some money, but if your whole database gets wiped, or you entirely lose access to your own site, then that's going to absolutely ruin you. Security is the boring part of a web business that no one wants to do, but extremely necessary. And you can't get it retroactively. If your site gets hacked, there is no point in paying a huge fee to a "security firm" to tell you what you already know. The best part of Beagle Security is that they also have live chat support, and you can ask for guidance there, but once they get more success, maybe they won't be so available to answer all the questions, so I believe that implementing a terms glossary and HOW TO guides are important for scaling. I really want Beagle Security to succeed. I see a great use of this service. But I think that implementation guides and a wiki of terms are absolutely necessary for those who aren't so techie.

Pros

Getting set-up is fairly easy. All you have to do is enter your website URL and verify domain ownership. There is also a Wordpress plugin for that. But you can also do it by uploading a file, adding a TXT record or some server commands. Once you start your test, the fun happens. The level of analysis is comprehensive. Your website and server will be thoroughly tested for all sorts of vulnerabilities. The testing lasts a couple of days and are quite resource intensive on your server side. I have a small VPS of 2GB RAM, and the CPU goes from 1% to 90% during these tests. Uptime monitoring showed me that my website even went down a few times, for just a few seconds. I usually have 100% uptime. So these are serious penetration tests and analysis done to your website, not just dust in your eyes. Once the tests are complete, you get a detailed report of all the vulnerabilities found. These vulnerabilities are then categorized Critical, High, Medium, Low or just Info. You immediately get an overall picture of how your site and server stands, security wise, with a score and color-coded issues. I really love having this Big Picture vision, and then you can dive in each issue and see what it's about. It also takes into account past tests. If you fixed something, or a new vulnerability is found, then that is shown in the report.

Cons

This isn't non-techie friendly. There isn't enough information on how to actually fix the issues that are found. You need to know quite a bunch of stuff to understand what the results mean. It uses "techie language" that a normal business owner might not be familiar with. So if you're serious about putting to use what you got, then you would need to start reading a bunch of stuff. And it's not a small amount of reading, since your site will probably have more than 100 vulnerabilities found. Sure, it gives you recommendations on WHAT TO DO, but not HOW to do it. That's the tricky part. I would recommend them focusing more on making their language and instructions to be user-friendly if they want to capture normal website owners, not tech gurus. A wiki of terms would also be a good idea to link each techie term to an explanation. And step-by-step instructions on HOW to actually do what they recommend to implement. I understand that there are many ways to cook a rabbit, but try to at least give some. Otherwise a normal website owner might get stuck, with pages of recommendations, but no way on implementing them. Another issue is that you have to re-run the whole test again to check if you have indeed fixed the issues. I wish there would be a line-by-line re-test instead of making the whole test again, which takes a few days.

Perfect for security enthusiasts - even beginners!

For someone who is self-hosting without being a professional web developer or IT administrator, the insights provided by Beaglesecurity make a striking difference. I can maintain an objectively secure website without breaking my budget. The provided suggestions, although not always comprehensive, are enough to guide the non-professional to take sufficient mitigation steps.

Pros

1. Extensive security testing, delivered via a very intuitive and beautiful Ux. 2. Comprehensive reporting containing the results as well as history tracking with fixed or remaining vulnerabilities. 3. Suggestions and how-to's in order to mitigate the discovered vulnerabilities. 4. The Beagle Security badge that can be displayed on my website, with an associated grade.

Cons

Scans take long and can be taxing on the server. Also, you can't re-scan for specific vulnerabilities after taking mitigation steps; you need to repeat the entire scan, which can take up to 3 days to complete. Although suggestions are provided, they aren't as comprehensive and someone inexperienced may have a hard time finding how to go about things. Also, it's not entirely clear how the final security score is calculated.

Thanks for the detailed review, Diamantis. Glad to hear that you love the extensive vulnerability reporting, mitigations, security badge, etc. Unfortunately, we don't have rescanning specific vulnerabilities yet. Our team is looking into the feature. Regarding the suggestions, we're continuously working on making them better for you.
