I don't think it's either/or - not sure if this is useful to you
because it doesn't give you the 'What's core like' answer but our
company thinks that more and more companies are buying one or both
Core and Canvas for basic tests and getting a better understanding of
how things are working, then hiring experts for more specific tests,
or to ensure that while relatively novice pentesters (in the NOC)  can
run standard point and shoot tests, professionals come  in to do the
heavy lifting. Not rocket science, but a trend, we think!

Dear Members,

I've been doing Pen test for a quite while. I have used both Open
source and Commercial tools for the activity. Now because of automated
tools such as core Impact, Canvas, Qualys most of the clients are coming
up with the Question of Whether to go fo Core Impact or hire some
consultants to do the activity. These clients are not worried bout
paying huge money to buy these tools.

Since I have not used Core Impact, I cant figure out the differences. I
believe you guys can help me out.

Any comments appreciated.

Regds,

J
