Find and fix zero-day issues with automated penetration testing

Heyhack continuously crawls, scans, and tests your web applications to find vulnerabilities before hackers do. You only need to provide the web address of your application along with the credentials for two test users that Heyhack can use for logging into your application—and you're good to go! 💪
Our AI-based automated penetration testing services identify login forms and authenticate them with the credentials you provided to test all the functionality in your app behind the login screen. No human intervention is necessary—everything runs autonomously on a schedule that you decide.

Test every feature and every backend API

You cannot test what you cannot see. This is the core philosophy of Heyhack and, with this guiding principle, Heyhack aims to comprehensively uncover every single fly-out menu, input field, modal, select elements, and more.
Heyhack automatically documents every action conducted during the penetration test. For every page Heyhack finds, a screenshot is recorded and saved and, for every DOM element, Heyhack makes an annotation to highlight the objects that have been tested thoroughly as part of the scan.

Don't waste your time on false positives

Heyhack intelligently extracts characteristics of every found vulnerability to track it across multiple penetration tests. This lets you examine the lifetime of a given vulnerability in your application and eliminates the problem of having duplicate issues in your list of findings.
Moreover, Heyhack actively attempts to exploit every vulnerability candidate with a POC attack to verify the validity of the issue. Only vulnerabilities that are found to be exploitable will be reported as findings in the test report. This ensures that you don't have to waste time qualifying found issues and can concentrate on remediating the issues with your team instead.

Penetration test report sample

For every automated penetration test, Heyhack automatically generates a penetration test report that you can download as a PDF file. The report complies with industry requirements and lives up to the standards that most SOC 2 and ISO 27001 auditors are familiar with.
You can download a sample report from a penetration test conducted on the OWASP Juice Shop—a modern and sophisticated insecure web application developed and sponsored by the Open Worldwide Application Security Project. Beware that the OWASP Juice Shop by design has a lot of security issues built into so the report is quite extensive. 🙂

Penetration testing versus vulnerability scanning

Vulnerability scanning aims to find known vulnerabilities in popular software products—typically registered in CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) database. In contrast, the goal of penetration testing is to find unknown security issues in applications that could be exploited by malicious hackers.
Easy configuration of new apps

Unlike other dynamic application security testing tools, Heyhack only requires a web address and the credentials for a couple of test users to get going. Get started in less than 30 seconds.

Supporting multiple test users

As the only automated web application testing tool, Heyhack supports multiple users to be used during the testing of your application, unlocking a wide variety of Broken Access Control tests.

Complete coverage of your web apps

Heyhack covers your entire application fully automatically and documents every step of the process with screenshots and test cases. Easily export test results to PDF reports.

Heyhack just works out-of-the-box and consistently crawls and tests web apps that are built using all kinds of development frameworks. It handles authentication flows particularly well, making it easy to run Heyhack on apps that require login.

Common questions about automated penetration testing

Here are some of the frequently asked questions around web application security and penetration testing. If the points below don't answer the question you have, please reach out to one of our experts to set up a call. We'll be happy to help you clarify any question you might have. 🙂
What is penetration testing?
Penetration testing, often called 'pen testing', is a critical strategy for maintaining secure web applications. By mimicking potential cyber attacks, pen testing identifies potential security gaps within your application. When automated, it streamlines this process, enhancing your web application's protection and ensuring it stands up against potential threats.
How much does penetration testing cost?
A simple penetration test conducted by a consultant might cost a few thousand U.S. dollars, while a more complex test might run into the tens of thousands. Heyhack's fully automated penetration testing solution starts at USD 5,000 per year and includes monthly recurring penetration testing of two web applications. Learn more about our offerings on our Pricing page.
How often should penetration testing be done?
The frequency of penetration testing can vary. For most companies, monthly testing is advised. However, businesses managing sensitive information or experiencing regular system changes might require more frequent tests—weekly or even daily. Regular penetration testing helps ensure robust security, keeping your digital environment resilient against potential threats.
Difference between vulnerability scanning and penetration testing
Vulnerability scanning is the activity of scanning for known vulnerabilities in systems such as operating systems and web applications. Typically, these vulnerabilities are listed by the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE). Penetration testing is the activity of attempting break into a computer system and find unknown vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers.
How do I get a penetration test of my application?
Traditionally, getting a penetration test has involved engaging with a security consultant, scoping the test, dedicating 2–4 weeks for the actual pentest, reviewing the results of the test, and meeting with consultant to discuss any potential improvements. With Heyhack, you can start a penetration test in less than 5 minutes. Create an account to try it out today.
What penetration test frameworks exist in the industry?
The Open Worldwide Application Security Project (OWASP) is the leading organization for the promotion of application security globally. The OWASP maintains and publishes the OWASP Web Security Testing Guide, which is a universally recognized, comprehensive a framework of best practices used by penetration testers and organizations all over the world.
How do you remediate issues found by a penetration test?
After a penetration test, the first step towards remediation is to prioritize identified vulnerabilities based on their potential impact. You then develop a comprehensive plan detailing how to tackle each vulnerability, which might involve patching software or updating protocols. Once implemented, it's crucial to re-test and ensure the issues have been effectively resolved.
Difference between black box testing and white box testing
Black box penetration testing mimics potential external threats without prior knowledge of the system, uncovering real-world weaknesses. White box testing uses full system details to find hidden vulnerabilities, whereas gray box testing involves partial system knowledge, simulating insider threats. Each provides unique insights for strengthening your system's security.
