Headless and Grey Box

Headless and GreyBox

The integrity checker solutions on the market have many recurring features. Among them, the Headless technology is a feature included in the best offers on the market, because it can map the whole content of a website or web application.

Integrity by HTTPCS provides this feature in order to scan dynamic content, i.e. content adapting to some contexts. Distill.io also provides this technology, incorporated with an Add-on only working on the main browsers.

Some parts of an application, like a member area, require an authentication to be accessed to. Solutions like HTTPCS perform Grey Box testing to get access to the whole application for an optimum integrity checking. The Distill.io integrity checker cannot perform Grey Box testing within authenticated areas.

Frequency and URL limitation

Frequency and URL limitation

Integrity by HTTPCS can check all the pages of an application with no limitation, unlike most competitors on the market.

Indeed, Distill.io checks one page after another while Integrity can support, with just a click, the whole application and its external sources.

Integrity by HTTPCS is one the rare integrity checkers that performs real-time monitoring, which is a real advantage for companies that constantly create and share content.

With Distill.io, you can choose among two kinds of monitoring:

  • The regular monitors, or “Cloud Monitor”, hosted by the company
  • The monitors supported by the customer (Local Monitor), in which the company rents the solution. The Local Monitor has the advantage of reducing the scan frequency between two integrity checks: from 5 seconds to 30 days max. By contrast, the frequency scan of Cloud Monitors starts every 2 minutes.

While HTTPCS fully scans a website in real-time, the numbers of checks performed by Distill.io is limited to 160,000/month per monitor. A user who has an application with 1,000 URLs and only one monitor will only be able to perform 160 complete checks.

Frequency and URL limitation
With its real-time checking, there is no page or frequency limitation. The application is fully checked all the time, which makes Integrity competitive in terms of reactivity.
5/5

Frequency and URL limitation
A company can resort to Cloud Monitoring or Local Monitoring by using its own monitors. The scan frequency is 5 seconds with the local monitors and 2 minutes for the cloud monitors.

Alerts

Distill.io sends notifications by email, SMS, but also by push notifications or by API integration (Webhooks). However, the alerts are subjected to a monthly limitation: 5,000 notifications and 300 SMS alerts. The number of recipients is also limited to 4 users, even though you can add more for an extra cost.

Viewing and data storage

Viewing of changes and data storage

Letting the users monitor a change made on their website or web application is crucial for an integrity checker.

As for Integrity by HTTPCS, you just have to click on the alert details to view the detected changes. Just by looking at the “before/after”, the user can white-list the alert if it’s a normal change (made by internal working teams) or confirm if it’s a fraudulent change. The viewing of changes is more regular on Distill.io, since new elements are written in red on the representation of the monitored page.

Regarding users’ data storage:

  • HTTPCS Integrity stores them indefinitely to create statistics at any time. Even after contract cancellation, the data is stored on the servers for a year.
  • Distill.io provides the users the last 20 check reports made available from the interface, which is inconvenient to create long-term studies.

Specificities

Specificities

Each solution has its own specificities that differentiate them from other integrity checkers.

Choosing to perform integrity checks from its own devices is what differentiates Distill.io from its competitors. Compared to a regular monitor, the scan frequency performances are better. However, resorting to a Local Monitor implies additional expenses for a company regarding its infrastructure.

Regarding HTTPCS Integrity, checking external sources of a web application is a real strength.

The external sources are parts of a web application (an API integration, e.g.) from a third party. If the external source goes through a fraudulent attack, it will directly impact the website that hosts that source. Google will tell its users that your website is dangerous, which will negatively impact your e-reputation. In this context, the HTTPCS solution will keep you out of trouble.

Thanks to its new feature, Integrity can now detect malicious files, just like an antivirus. Besides, the solution is compatible and complementary with the rest of the HTTPCS cybersecurity suite (Monitoring, Security and CyberVigilance).

Specificities
The main advantages of Integrity are the checking of external sources, its malicious file detection feature and its complementarity with HTTPCS SECURITY, MONITORING and CYBER-VIGILANCE.
5/5

Specificities
The main specificity of Distill.io is that the user can freely choose to perform its integrity check or not. The “Local Monitoring” has the advantage of giving better performances than “Cloud Monitoring”.
