Why do you need a penetration test?

  • You’re releasing a new app, product or feature
  • You want to check your security levels
  • You need to comply with SOC 2 or ISO 27001

Pentests are essential to help find out where you’re most likely to face an attack, so you can fix weaknesses before they’re exploited.

But manual pentests are often only run once or twice a year. And as automated attacks become more frequent and sophisticated, can you afford to rely on an annual check-up?

SOC 2 Vulnerability Management

What happens when you automate your penetration testing?

Continuous protection using an automated penetration testing tool (also known as a vulnerability scanner) provides always-on, year-round protection. Find and fix every vulnerability before it damages your business, and achieve your compliance goals.

Safeguard your systems

Is penetration testing the same as vulnerability scanning?

The term “penetration testing” typically represents a manual process by which a cyber security professional attempts to uncover weaknesses in your IT infrastructure. In contrast, vulnerability scanning is automated, which means that you can run periodic scans on your systems as often as you need to, in order to avoid being breached.  

It is also worth noting that vulnerability scanning is often the first step performed by penetration testers to determine the overall state of your systems before proceeding with more in-depth manual reviews. Read our blog to find out more about the differences.

Should I do manual or automated penetration testing?

To achieve a robust level of security, we recommend performing both manual and automated penetration testing (more commonly known as vulnerability scanning). The automated tools provide continuity of security and speed whereas humans excel at finding more complex vulnerabilities, so you will benefit from combining the two. Read our blog to find out more about the differences.

How long does a vulnerability scan take?

The vulnerability scans can take anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours to complete, depending on your systems and their setups. Read our help article for more information.

What type of penetration testing should I perform?

There are many types of services on the market, such as network, web application, and automated penetration testing. If you’re not sure where to start, we’d recommend reading this article to find out which one is right for you. Or contact us for support, we would be more than happy to help!

Does your vulnerability scanner include authenticated areas of a web app?

Yes, with Intruder you can carry out authenticated web application scans. Perform thorough reviews of your modern web applications and websites, including single page applications (SPAs), to identify dangerous bugs which could have a severe business impact if not resolved.

Do you offer manual penetration testing services?

In addition to fully automated scanning, we have a team of certified security professionals at Intruder who can perform manual penetration testing, or help you to manage your vulnerability scanning, and find complex issues beyond immediately available scan results, as part of our Vanguard solution.
