Astra’s automated penetration testing service provides you with an outside approach to security. Detect flaws & their impact with actionable remediation measures.
Automated penetration testing refers to the process of employing software tools to swiftly detect web application vulnerabilities and risks. It enhances scalability, efficiency, and effectiveness, especially when integrated into DevSecOps practices. This budget-friendly solution complements traditional manual testing by swiftly uncovering web app security issues.
1. Efficiency: Unlike manual testing, which is slow and resource-heavy, automated tools swiftly scan for vulnerabilities, ideal for fast-paced development. This ensures consistent, systematic testing, minimizing human error and producing reliable results.
2. Scalability: As an organization grows and develops new software, automated security penetration testing can adapt to the increased testing demands without significantly increasing the required resources.
3. Continuous Testing: By embedding automated pen testing in the CI/CD pipeline, organizations proactively address security at each development stage, preventing issues from reaching production environments.
4. Risk Mitigation: Automated penetration testing services swiftly uncover vulnerabilities and security risks, allowing organizations to promptly address critical issues. This ensures rapid feedback and security maintenance without hindering development.
1. Plan and Prepare: First, we clearly define the scope and goals of the automated penetration test. We then identify the target systems, applications, or networks to be tested and specify security aspects to be assessed, such as web application vulnerabilities, network configurations, or database security.
2. Scanning and Vulnerability Assessment: Next, we gather your device, system and network information through digital reconnaissance, like IP addresses and firmware versions. Then, we use automated tools like the Astra software for vulnerability scanning to uncover known weaknesses.
3. Penetration Testing: Our software uses various techniques like brute-force attacks and code injection to pentest the above vulnerabilities. If successful, our software assesses the impact and explores any other potential risks.
4. Reporting and Remediation: Lastly, it compiles a comprehensive report summarizing the findings, potential impact, and possible remediation ideas to help your team get started in the right direction. A re-scan should be carried out after the vulnerabilities are fixed to assess the quality of the patches.
Spot vulnerabilities at every phase. Understand their impact. Remediate them efficiently.
