Avanturebytes specializes in manual penetration testing services for web applications, mobile applications, desktop applications, APIs, and external networks. Using this platform, you can easily manage your vulnerability workflows. Knowing your vulnerabilities and how attackers might exploit them provides tremendous insight that you can use to improve your security posture.

Skillset matching for each test

No two applications are the same, so we bring just the right combination of skills, performance, and experience to you based on your tech stack. We draw, a score of 270+ heavily vetted, high-quality pen-testers to find the right skills to match your security requirements, business needs, and schedule. It connects you with the world’s most skilled and trusted Pentesters on an industry-leading security testing platform. We don’t just give you the next pentester waiting on the bench, instead, we handpick the testers that fit your testing needs. AvantureBytes search pool contains a vast array of Pentesters from certified security professionals to highly skilled Pentesters with deep domain expertise. Each Core pentester undergoes third-party identification and criminal background checks, an extensive technical interview process, and an objective skills assessment. Each Core pentester undergoes third party ID checks, an extensive technical interview process, and an objective skills assessment. Experienced security professionals from industry-leading enterprise companies Industry leaders who give talks at top tier conferences.

What can you expect?

A detailed description and proof of concept for each finding. Actionable remediation plan and real-time feedback. Risk severity mappings and insight into the level of effort needed to remediate the findings Positive findings that call out what security controls you have that are effective. Descriptions, screenshots, and suggested fixes for vulnerabilities.

What to fix and how to get it fixed

Fixing vulnerabilities is an important part of reducing an application’s overall risk, but most important is fixing them so the application’s users and data can remain well-protected. To help prioritize vulnerability fixes. AvantureBytes provides a criticality rating based on impact and business contexts such as the damage potential, reproducibility, exploitability, number of affected users, and discoverability of each finding. Also, Core Pentesters provide detailed notes on recommended fixes, and if you have a question at any point you can easily communicate with them in real-time.


Web Application Pentest

AvantureBytes’s web application penetration testing service leverages the Open Web Application Security Project Application Security Verification Standard and the OWASP Testing, which together create a comprehensive framework for assessing the security of web-based applications, as the foundation for our web application assessment methodology. On top of OWASP, the Pentesters will also test the security of specific business logic associated with the web application such as weaknesses in data validation or integrity checks, flaws that can only be discovered through manual testing, not automated vulnerability scanning. Misconfiguration, cross-site scripting, broken authentication and session management, exposure of sensitive data, and access control-type vulnerabilities in applications are just a few of the vulnerability types.

API Pentest

APIs, short for application programming interfaces, have gained a lot of popularity among developers because they easily allow third-party programs to interact more efficiently and easily. API penetration testing is very similar to web application penetration testing and so the Cobalt API Pentesting methodology is based on the same foundation. Avanturebytes tests web-based APIs, REST APIs, and mobile APIs. Avanturebytes Pentesters analyze the target API to find out which authentication type is used. Avanturebytes Pentesters study API structures, understand request methods and understand responses. Per client instruction, they can use techniques that can be applied to endpoints and exploit bugs on a real production API or an API in a staging environment. By understanding structure, roles, and scopes the testers can find hidden weaknesses in your application.

Mobile Applicationpen test

Mobile applications are becoming more and more popular which means that consumers and corporations find themselves facing new threats around privacy and insecure applications. Avanture Bytes does testing for applications on all mobile platforms including iOS, Android, and Windows. Avanturebytes’s Pentesters go beyond looking at just common API and web vulnerabilities to examine the risk of a mobile application. For instance, Avanturebytes Pentesters discover vulnerabilities related to code tampering, reverse engineering, and extraneous functionality.

External Network Pentest

Avanturebytes can test external networks for any hosting service. Avanturebytes Pentesters will carry out the testing without detailed network or infrastructure diagrams and without any accounts or additional user information. At Avanturebytes, we follow a standard methodology based on the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual. This methodology for network penetration testing services includes:

  • Identifying and exploiting existing vulnerabilities

  • A posture review and preparation to avoid false positives

  • Enumerating targets and visibility audit

  • Verifying access, trust, controls, processes, configuration, property (information and data), exposure, quarantine measures, and survivability

  • Reviewing network segregation and privilege management

  • Reviewing alerts and logs

The External Network test can be limited to a specific IP range or also include more wide reconnaissance using OSINT.

AWS Pentest

Amazon Web Services penetration testing is a popular service for any pentest company, driven by the growth of AWS capabilities. Avanturebytes’s AWS pentest is an exercise in which the Avanturebytes Core pentester carries out an assessment over the Amazon-based cloud environment and all of its internal and external components. We perform the following steps to ensure full coverage: target scope reconnaissance, component enumeration, automated component configuration assessment, automated and manual assessment of externally exposed services, architectural design analysis, reporting, and remediation tracking.

Code Assisted Pentest

Pentest is typically performed from a "black box" or "zero-knowledge" perspective; meaning the security Pentesters have limited to no prior knowledge about the implementation details of the target, in-scope application. With code-assisted, gray-box penetration testing, Avanturebytes’s Pentesters have access to the source code of the application; effectively enabling the team to use the code alongside testing activities as a means to gain a thorough understanding of the target application and enhance the accuracy of the findings discovered during testing.
