Pentest Robots - automate 80%
of your manual pentesting work

Use Pentest Robots to automate tedious (but necessary) tasks so you can focus on quality results and complex issues - at scale.

  • Build visual testing flows tailored to your methodologies

  • Combine our tools with your logic for automated attack surface mapping

  • Retain full control over testing stages

  • Gain more time to deal with complex issues

  • Maintain testing consistency across teams and engagements

What are Pentest Robots?

TL;DR Pentest Robots are software robots (bots) that orchestrate the tools on Pentest-Tools.com.

When you build a pentest robot, you design a testing flow that chains our tools based on your know-how and approach. The resulting robot is a testing flow you can run automatically (Scan with Robot) against any target you want.

Pentest robots pack an RPA-like approach which gives you the huge potential of automation without the risk of accidental damage. You retain full control over testing stages while injecting a massive efficiency increase into your workflow.

Pentest Robots

In the visual builder, drag & drop our tools and logic blocks to determine which pentest tools run and which types of findings trigger deeper, more focused scans. The visual flow is translated into a script that runs the tools automatically, giving you full visibility over progress and results.

Pentest robots require no coding, no maintenance, and you can run them no matter your platform. They also work just as well for simple and complex pentesting flows, so both junior and senior pentesters can use them. Tap into the large scalability potential they offer by automating 80% of your manual work (build all the robots you need, run multiple robots at the same time).

Pentest Robot creation

Why not use a vulnerability scanner instead?

Because they’re different types of tools.

Typical vulnerability scanner Pentest Robot
Automates repetitive, boring tasks that are part of any pentest - no maintenance required Orchestrates multiple tools (incl. vulnerability scanners)
You can’t easily modify it to your needs Runs custom testing flows adapted to your specific needs
It's very noisy because it attempts to find all vulnerabilities (it knows of) Performs targeted testing by the conditioned tool execution on the matched filter/condition

Why not automate 100% of the process?

Because you just can’t automate everything.

No one can...

  • Interpret the context of the target
  • Decide which data is important
  • Know when to stop or when to push further
  • Find logic flaws, chain exploits, and do custom post-exploitation as you do.

A good pentester can never be replaced by a robot.

But we believe a robot can make you exponentially more effective.

Maintain quality across pentests and team members

Entire teams can use pentest robots to ensure consistent results and quality across engagements.

With less time and effort spent on repetitive (but necessary) tasks, penetration testers like you can focus and dig deeper into the most interesting findings.

Gain more time to deliver proof-of-concept exploits that simulate attack scenarios. Translate impact into more compelling business terms that decision-makers understand.

Use every hour saved to design stronger pentesting methodologies that uncover better findings and help you stand out.

3 Pentest Robots you can use right now

Run these pre-built, pre-tested robots as soon as you log into your account!

Recon Robot

Recon Robot

Discovers all subdomains of a target domain. Then continues with full port scanning and service discovery.

For each web port, it does recon to gather technologies and take screenshots. You can find all the data aggregated in the unified Attack Surface view.

Web Login Bruteforcer Robot

Identifies all the web ports of the target host.

For each web port (80, 443, 8080, 8443, etc), it runs the URL Fuzzer using a list of common web interface URLs.

For each login interface found, it runs the Password Auditor to find weak, common credentials.

Web Login Bruteforcer Robot
Full Web Scanner Robot

Full Web Scanner Robot

Identifies all the web ports of a target host (80, 443, 8080, 8081, anything which speaks http/s).

For each web port, it does a full Website Scan, searching for:

  • SQL injection
  • XSS
  • OS command injection
  • All other vulns from OWASP Top 10 and more!

Before it wraps up, this pentest robot produces an aggregated report with all the findings.

Built in-house, by pentesters for...

  • Pentesters

    Who want to stand out through exceptional results and take on more engagements.

  • Consultants

    Looking to deliver high-impact findings to complex customers.

  • MSPs and MSSPs

    Seeking to diversify their offering and serve more clients without overhead.

Serve more clients without overhead

  • Run multiple pentesting tools in automated sequences - at a very fair cost. Free up your team members to handle more customers by automating recurring tasks and eliminating duplicate work.

  • Automate as much as 80% of your pentesting tasks, so you can focus your expertise on the 20% that makes all the difference.

  • Additionally, get more time to find, hire, train, and develop less experienced team members so you can grow together.

Your pentest robot has finished running. Now what?

At first we thought you were planning to leave us pentesters without a job and replace us with robots. But, joking aside, we believe this feature can indeed help us automate manual tasks and save time.

Seeing how intuitive it is and how it provides a clear audit trail showed me it is very promising if further improved. It looks great and we can't wait to use it at full potential!

What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?

Robotic Process Automation is the technology that enables an individual to build a software robot that replicates the actions a human would perform in order to execute a process.

RPA allows individuals to use a simple user interface to set the actions the software robot must perform and the conditions that direct those actions.

In penetration testing, we used an RPA-like approach that features building blocks (tool blocks and logic blocks) which customers can assemble to create pentest robots. These robots can interact with systems, scan them, capture the necessary data, trigger responses based on the conditions you set, and use the findings to populate your Attack Surface view and reports.

Do you use an external RPA solution?

No, we built our pentest robots in-house to give penetration testers the flexibility they need. The reason behind it is that pentest robots require a specific approach that captures the methods and thinking behind effective penetration tests.

At Pentest-Tools.com, we envisioned pentesters could build visual testing flows to quickly automate their repetitive tasks and scale the power of their knowledge and expertise. So we built a custom RPA solution designed specifically for them. This ties into our perspective that automation works really well for certain aspects of pentesting, but not for all of them.

Is this AI (artificial intelligence)?

No, this type of automation is closer to Robotic Process Automation (or even Scratch). We don’t like to flaunt trendy words and rather enjoy working quietly to solve pressing issues we know all too well from our own experience.
