About Probe.ly


Probe.ly is a cloud-based web vulnerability scanning solution for security teams and developers. It is suitable for companies that build digital services. The solution scans web applications and manages the lifecycle of detected vulnerabilities.

Probe.ly provides custom instructions and code snippets to developers for threat monitoring and resolution. Users can scan security headers, cookie flags and transport layer security. Targets can be edited or archived. In addition, two URLs can be added in a single target separately for testing and production environments. APIs available on a different hostname can be added and scanned as a host.

The solution offers modules for identifying web applications and running specific scans for targeted apps. Probe.ly can also be integrated with tools for automatic security testing. Slack and Jira integrations are available as well.

The solution is available on a monthly subscription basis and support is provided via live chat.

An intelligent vulnerability scanner designed to speak your developer's language

Probely's made my security team more productive. Scheduling and managing scans is simple, and the output is developer friendly, which decreases friction between the security team and developers.

Pros

- Output is developer-friendly. Full details of the scan results, test info submitted, and recommended fixes are all in the report, making it easier for devs to ingest and respond to vulnerabilities
- Flexible GUI that makes scheduling, managing, and monitoring scans simple and easy
- API-driven. Rather than sending spreadsheets or PDFs of vulnerability reports, we can easily pull data from the latest scan

Cons

- Somewhat limited functionality, e.g., can identify vulnerabilities in a web app, but not an out of date web server. Such a scenario would require multiple tools
- Custom vulnerability scoring may not align with everybody's vulnerability scoring. The reports include the CVSS score as well as Probely's assigned criticality, so it is possible to work around this.

Amazing service

Pros

I like almost everything about Probe.ly but one thing that really stands out is Probely’s support. They are really hands on and proactive when it comes to any problem we experience.

Cons

Nothing really. There’ve been some minor bugs but whenever it happens customer support comes in and fixes the issue pretty quickly.

Great product that has saved me hours and grief

Pros

Probe.ly provides us with Compliance reports that helped us achieve PCI compliance. Another part of Probe.ly that I like is the API. The API is complete, and you can implement it pretty quickly.

Cons

There’s not much feedback while the scan is running. There are some vulnerabilities shown while the scan is running, but you can’t know how much time is left until the end of the scan.

Good product, easy use, not to expensive compared to the competitors.

Pros

It's straight forward in it use, and does do what it says it should do.

Cons

Even though the api is extensive, you can only scan fixed targets, so scanning several containers after build where the address is changing from is not possible. limiting our scans to staging and prod only,

I really can’t think of any negative aspects of Probe.ly

Great Vulnerability Scanning Experience

It makes security so much easier for our developers. We integrated the lightning scans in our CI pipeline and since then everything is really hands-off and automatic.

Pros

The API is my favorite part of Probe.ly. Everything in the available in the web Interface is on the API, so it saves me and my team of developers a lot of time.

Cons

Still waiting on the Jira integration. But they have it in their roadmap, so hopefully it's coming soon.

Intuitive and inexpensive

Pros

The API. It includes everything from the web interface and is really easy to set up. Also, they provide you with the opportunity to add a multiple environment target. You can test both your staging and your production environments for the price of one. Most of their competitors charge you for both.

Cons

Not much to dislike. Everything seemed to run smooth.
