Automated vs Manual Pentesting


Although Secura uses some tools that enable automated testing, we do not rely exclusively on those scans, but prefer to perform a large number of manual tests.

Bits depth

The reason that we manually perform these tests is that tools can simply not be aware of the relevant business logic and context for a certain application.

In addition, tools are sometimes very difficult to use for some frameworks and applications because the developers have implemented specific measures to prevent exactly this kind of automation (for instance, request throttling, anti-CSRF measures and anti-screen-scraping).

I'd like to know more about Automated vs. Manual Pentesting!
