Penetration Testing Services - eBuilder Security

Prevent attacks by identifying and fixing security loopholes

During a pentest, your IT systems undergo testing for vulnerabilities that cybercriminals could exploit to penetrate your entire network. Our experts conduct real-life simulations of hacking into your system.

Pentesting, also known as ethical hacking, helps organizations protect critical data. eBuilder Security provides pentesting as a service.

Our Pentest offerings

While adhering to industry standards and methods, we conduct penetration tests and vulnerability scans on web applications, mobile applications, network infrastructure, and APIs. Alternatively, we can offer you a tailor-made pen test based on your specific requirements.

Web Application Pentest

Web Application Pentest

Three quarters (3/4) of data breaches worldwide occur through web applications. A data breach originating from a web application can be extremely harmful for you and your customers, given that web applications often handle vast amounts of sensitive information.

Such a data breach can have a significant financial impact for the organization and irrecoverably damage its reputation. Moreover, threat actors are increasingly exploiting web applications as entry points to infiltrate networks and gain access to other systems.

A Web Application Penetration test simulates real cyber attacks against your web application, aimed at discovering exploitable vulnerabilities. Our penetration testers at eBuilder Security conduct tests using various attack scenarios, taking into account the complex business logic of the web application, to assess its resilience against threats.

Penetration testing of your web application Penetration testing your web application offers numerous benefits, including a reduced risk of data breaches, compliance with regulatory requirements, and enhanced customer confidence in the application’s security measures. If your web application is built and maintained by a third-party supplier, penetration testing the application serves as an important checkpoint in managing risks arising from your suppliers.

Network and Infrastructure Pentest

Network and Infrastructure Pentest

The network and infrastructure form the backbone of an organization’s IT operations, facilitating data transfer and communication. That’s why hackers consistently target these weaknesses to exploit and gain unauthorized access to the network and underlying systems.

Despite their critical role, vulnerabilities at the network and infrastructure levels, such as weak authentication methods, missing security updates, outdated software and operating systems, encryption flaws, etc., have become prevalent in organizational IT systems. Conducting regular penetration tests (pen tests) on the network and infrastructure enables organizations to proactively identify and address such vulnerabilities before they are exploited by cybercriminals.

A Network and Infrastructure Pentest involves a systematic assessment of an organization’s network architecture and infrastructure assets, testing them for exploitable vulnerabilities similar to a real cyber-attack. This assessment aims to uncover vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and weaknesses that could potentially compromise the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and services.

The ‘Network and Infrastructure Pentest’ service provided by eBuilder Security ensures the protection of your network and infrastructure from threats, both within and outside the organization. Improve your IT security by safeguarding critical infrastructure assets while maintaining trust with stakeholders and complying with regulatory requirements.

Automated Network Pentest

Automated Network Pentest (Vonahi)

Most organizations recognize the importance of regularly conducting penetration tests on their networks to safeguard their IT systems and infrastructure. However, regular network penetration tests can be both costly and time-consuming, and they are not helpful to identify new vulnerabilities on demand.

Automated network penetration testing makes penetration tests more affordable, scalable, and efficient. While regular penetration tests are typically conducted at longer intervals, automated penetration tests enable organizations to conduct network penetration tests monthly or on-demand as needed, allowing them to discover new vulnerabilities faster and adapt dynamically to changes. Many organizations are also required to conduct network penetration testing periodically to meet the compliance requirements.

Automated network penetration testing utilizes a consolidated platform that combines the knowledge, tools, techniques, methodologies, and processes of experienced security consultants. We assist organizations in conducting penetration tests within their environments on-demand, ensuring compliance requirements are met and network security best practices are followed. This automated platform operates on a framework that undergoes continual improvements over time.

API Pentest

API Pentest

An API (or Application Programming Interface) is an intermediary service that enables applications to communicate with each other. There is a risk that malicious actors may attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in an API exposed externally to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data, disrupt services, or launch attacks.

Even internal APIs are vulnerable to insider threats if not properly secured. A vulnerable API can make all connecting applications vulnerable as well, which is why API penetration testing is equally significant as application penetration testing.

API penetration testing involves a comprehensive assessment of an API to uncover exploitable vulnerabilities and weaknesses. Penetration testing APIs differ from overall application penetration testing since the focus of testing is solely on the APIs. Our team of security specialists, experienced in API penetration testing, simulate real-world attack scenarios to identify vulnerabilities and assess the resilience of the APIs. API penetration testing helps protect against attacks, safeguard sensitive data across applications, and ensures compliance with data protection regulations such as GDPR.

Mobile Application Pentest

Mobile Application Pentest

Today, there are over 4 million mobile apps available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store alone. With the popularity and wider availability of mobile apps, they have become attractive targets for cybercriminals. According to statistics, over 80% of mobile apps are vulnerable to cyber attacks.

That’s why any organization that has a mobile app, whether it is developed in-house or outsourced, should conduct penetration testing at periodic intervals to safeguard the sensitive information of their users (e.g., personal and financial data of customers) stored in the app.

Mobile Application Penetration Testing is performed to identify application vulnerabilities that could be exploited by cybercriminals. It involves simulating real-life attack scenarios and testing different business logic to assess the security of mobile apps and their underlying infrastructure. This includes assessing both the client-side (app) and server-side components. During a mobile app penetration test, security specialists at eBuilder Security leverage their experience to attempt to break into the mobile app being tested and identify weaknesses that can be exploited by a real attacker.

Penetration testing your organization’s mobile app allows you to avoid data breaches and maintain customer trust while complying with regulatory requirements and industry standards.

Vulnerability Assessments

Application and Network Vulnerability Assessments

A single vulnerability in one of your systems is all it takes to compromise your entire network. Vulnerability assessments (or vulnerability scanning) for both web applications and network/infrastructure involve identifying potential weaknesses in systems through automated scanning of applications or networks.

For web applications, vulnerabilities often arise from external components like third-party frameworks, libraries, and services. Due to the dynamic nature of web applications, new vulnerabilities are frequently introduced whenever a change is made. Similarly, network and infrastructure vulnerabilities can emerge due to various reasons such as misconfigurations, outdated software or firmware, or insecure network protocols.

These vulnerabilities can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to your network or applications, steal sensitive data, or even launch a ransomware attack, rendering all your systems inaccessible with no easy way to recover. Regular vulnerability assessments are crucial for identifying and mitigating these risks effectively.

Due to the flexible and scalable nature of the vulnerability assessment process, vulnerability scans can be conducted daily or weekly, enabling faster identification of vulnerabilities compared to penetration tests, which are often conducted at longer intervals. Vulnerability assessments can also be performed at a fraction of the cost of a penetration test, making it a more affordable way to identify vulnerabilities regularly compared to penetration testing. Regular vulnerability assessments help you to sleep better at night while addressing an important compliance requirement.

Our Pentest Methodology

We follow a 5-stage process for penetration testing. The tools and techniques used vary based on the type of pentest, the scope of testing, and the nature of the system.


Information Gathering

Gather information on business requirements from the client as well as from online data-sharing web sources. Leverage phishing wherever applicable.

Assess & Analyze

Identify critical application pages and perform automated scans to identify vulnerabilities. Analyze, verify and eliminate false positives from vulnerability analysis reports.

Exploit & Penetrate

Attempt exploitation techniques on identified vulnerabilities. Penetrate into the underlying infrastructure using the application vulnerabilities.

Attack Persistence

Establish access, replicate attacks, and escalate privileges. Pivot through the network and penetrate into other critical servers like AD, Mail server, etc.


After the security threats have been removed, verification tests are executed.

What should be included in a Pentest report?

The final step in pentesting, providing a report with the analysis, should include the following several key items:

  • An Executive Summary – Summary of all the vulnerabilities discovered during the pentest categorized by their severity.
  • Risk and Impact Analysis – Detailed analysis of the discovered vulnerabilities and their implications.
  • Recommendation – Our recommendation on how to mitigate each vulnerability.

Reports will be available within 48 hours (about 2 days) of a test.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a penetration test take?

Penetration testing usually takes about 2-3 weeks.

We already do vulnerability scanning. Why do we need a penetration test?

Scanning tells you what could happen, but not much about the extent of the risk the vulnerabilities may carry. This is where penetration test becomes beneficial.

Does it fulfill my compliance obligation?

Most audits like SOC 2 or ISO 27001 require you to have adequate security checks. Penetration tests may also be a requirement for some customers annually, especially if you are a Software as a Service [SaaS] Provider.
