Automated Pentests

ChatGPT and the growth of impressive AI tools has given rise to a new concept – automated penetration tests.

It sounds cool and marketing SEO loves it. But, the truth is that an automated “penetration test” is really just a more advanced vulnerability scan.

Can it be valuable? Certainly!

In fact, PEN Consultants recommends performing regular vulnerability scanning of your environment – and an automated “penetration testing” tool can perform that function well.

However, it can never fully replace a manual penetration test from experienced pentesters. At this time, there are whole classes of vulnerabilities and exploits that even the best AI tools can’t find with any degree of accuracy including business logic issues, access control gaps, sensitive data exposure, and so much more.
