Manual vs Automated Testing
Automated vulnerability scanners are unable to detect security vulnerabilities within the logic and specific behaviour of a web application. An experienced specialist understands the context of the application and will be able to determine how vulnerabilities might be the target of a scenario of exploitation. These vulnerabilities are usually not detected by automated tools that are mostly used to highlight common configuration errors, missing updates, and so on. Here are examples of high/critical vulnerabilities that manual app pentests can identify. Learn more →

Application Pentest Reports With Actionable Recommendations
Executive summary presenting the main findings, recommendations and risk management implications in a clear non-technical language.
Technical details required to properly understand and replicate each vulnerability (e.g.: screenshots, HTTP requests/responses, etc.). Recommendations to mitigate and fix the identified vulnerabilities
At the end of the project, you will be provided with an attestation certifying that penetration tests have been performed by experienced professionals using recognized methodologies and standards. This document will allow you to meet compliance and regulatory reporting requirements efficiently and with minimal overhead.
OWASP Best practices
The cost of a web application penetration test can vary according to various factors, such as the project scope, the number of features and types of users in the application.
Penetration testing for web applications not only requires knowledge of the latest web application security testing tools but also a deep understanding of how to use them most effectively. To assess web app security, our specialists leverage a range of open-source tools, pen-testing platforms (Such as Cobalt Strike), as well as custom-developed tools and exploits developed in-house and refined over the course of hundreds of projects.
The time it takes to complete a web application pentest depends on the scope of the test. Factors influencing the duration include the number and type of Web Apps, the number of static or dynamic pages, and input fields, among many other factors.

At the end of the pentest, you will be provided with a detailed report that includes all the findings and recommended mitigations. The report will also be presented to your appointed representative by your appointed senior specialist. The technical report includes the following:
- Executive summary presenting the main observations and recommendations.
- Vulnerability matrix prioritised by risk level.
- Vulnerabilities details including the following:
- Risk Level based on potential impact and exploitability.
- Fixes & Recommendations to fix the identified vulnerabilities.
- References to external resources to facilitate the implementation of our recommendations.
- Technical details such as screenshots, system traces, logs, etc.
- Appendix detailing complementary technical information.
- Methodology used during the project. (based on recognized standards)
Depending on your context, you will also be provided with an attestation certifying that penetration tests have been performed by experienced professionals using recognized methodologies and standards. This document will allow you to meet compliance and regulatory reporting requirements efficiently and with minimal overhead.
