How to compare security testing tools?


Can anyone let me know how to compare security testing tools?

What are the key factors to be considered while comparing security testing tools?

Thanks in advance,

The first thing that I would like to mention here is that you should have a clear idea about what you are looking forward to and to what are the areas that will be put to test more often or are more compromisable based on your requirements. There are different tools that are more favorable for certain working style or certain purposes, so that will form the key factors that one should look into while opting for one.

Try downloading BT 5 from Backtrack’s website and get your hands dirty on their collection of security tools. The apps on the toolbox are already categorized.

Agreed with this one. Backtrack’s is full with Secutiry Tools. Try it !
