  • The entire team is abruptly woken up by the deafening screech of the fire alarm. Everyone is suddenly snapped awake and confused in a state of panic. Even though this wasn't a premeditated event, it was a good lesson for the team on the impact of false positives. At Probely, we thrive at having one of the best false-positive rates in the market, and incidents like this help pass the message to the other team members.
  • Depending on the target's nature, you may want to prevent scans from running at certain times. For instance, when you don't want scans to affect your team's productivity during working hours or when you want to guarantee that your website can handle all customer requests during peak hours. With Probely, you can pause and resume scans later, both on-demand and automatically.
  • Understand how to use Teams to mimic your company’s structure better and address its needs. Please note that this feature is only available for Probely Plus. Teams provide a way for you to group Users, API keys, and Targets in one place so that managing them becomes easier and time-efficient. You can create multiple teams for one account. Teams act as independent units/groups and help you separate and assign targets for each team, limit the number of targets, set scopes, and user roles. One user can be added to different teams and assigned roles that don’t affect one another, such as an admin, developer, or a custom role.
  • The status quo in the cyber-security industry is that most small businesses can’t afford a security solution, and any attempts to become more secure are either drowned in technical jargon or in distant price-ranges. In order to change the way businesses deal with security, this status quo has to be challenged.
