Automated penetration testing is a vulnerability scanning technique whereby software is used to identify security flaws within websites, applications, network, and cloud infrastructure. It serves as a cost-effective alternative to manual penetration testing.
Despite automated penetration testing being a more cost-effective method of vulnerability detection than manual penetration testing, it can also be a valuable complementary service in order to maximise your manual penetration testing effectiveness. Automated tests have the ability to highlight and discover potential risks and flaws year-round and take the strain off manual tests.
Discover new vulnerabilities as they arise with year-round 24/7 scanning capabilities. Why wait for annual reports when you can continuously scan your web applications to catch new vulnerabilities as soon as they are introduced?
AppCheck emulates the process of a manual penetration with the frequency of an automated tool to discover zero days, OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, and 100,000+ known security flaws.
Automated penetration testing is easy to use, understand and ultimately implement. The testing produces intuitive reports which highlight any potential risks, vulnerabilities and suggests solutions in order to rectify these before they can be exploited.
AppCheck offers a specific integration with JetBrains TeamCity build management and continuous integration server, as well as an API that can be used to configure, trigger and query scan results from all other major CI/CD pipeline tools.
AppCheck emulates the process of a manual penetration test to provide full coverage of the OWASP Top 10, zero day vulnerabilities, and 100,000+ known security flaws.
Continuous assurance from automated scanning repeated as often as every code deploy. Quicker fixes take the strain off your team and shorten the attack window.
Automated penetration testing plays a key role in ensuring you have a strong and vigilant security process in place. It can be a vital and cost-effective method of discovering potential vulnerabilities within your systems year-round and can result in an increased awareness of the relative strength and protection that your current systems and networks provide.
Not only does AppCheck allow year-round testing but the software is actively maintained by a team of manual penetration testers and security consultants. This means that when new vulnerabilities appear in the industry; the AppCheck team are first to respond with a plug-in that enables our clients to quickly check for the specific security flaw to ensure they are not vulnerable.
