About Intruder

Intruder is an international cyber security company that helps organisations reduce their cyber exposure by providing an effortless vulnerability scanning solution. Intruder’s cloud-based vulnerability scanner discovers security weaknesses across your digital estate. Offering industry-leading security checks, continuous monitoring and an easy-to-use platform, Intruder keeps businesses of all sizes safe from hackers.

With Intruder, you’re able to find your weaknesses before the hackers do by running proactive vulnerability scans of your systems. Providing 24/7 monitoring, Intruder automatically scans users’ systems when new vulnerabilities are released, and notifies your team about newly discovered threats via Slack, email or Microsoft Teams.

Thanks to this unique approach, in January 2020, when a public exploit code was released that could be used to exploit the weakness of one of its clients, a leading law firm, Intruder scanned the organisation’s systems on the same day, discovered a vulnerable system, and notified them of the issue with recommended remediation advice. This gave the client a head start with prioritising a fix for this serious weakness, allowing them the time they needed to put mitigations in place as soon as possible.

Whereas traditional vulnerability scanners are complicated to use, require in-house expertise, and significant time investment, Intruder was designed so that even small IT teams can achieve best-in-class cyber protection. It explains the real risks and provides remediation advice in easy-to-understand language, and it can integrate with AWS, GCP, Azure, JIRA or extend to 2,000+ other apps with Zapier.

Intruder offers a 30-day free trial of their vulnerability assessment platform.
