Reduce your risk of a breach by identifying and exploiting business-critical vulnerabilities with on-demand penetration testing expertise.

On-demand expert penetration testing

Synopsys Penetration Testing enables you to address exploratory risk analysis and business logic testing so you can systematically find and eliminate business-critical vulnerabilities in your running web applications and web services, without the need for source code.

Choose from 2 depths of Pen Testing

Pen Testing extends DAST by using a variety of testing tools and in-depth manual tests focusing on business logic to find vulnerabilities outside a canned list of attacks (e.g., OWASP Top 10). We offer multiple depths of penetration testing assessments so you can tune the level of testing based on the risk profile of each tested application.


Includes automated scans as well as thorough manual testing to identify high-risk vulnerabilities in web applications and web services. Focuses on exploratory risk analysis (e.g., anti-automation, complex authentication).


Essential Service plus testing time and effort to explore business logic testing, which covers attacks outside a canned list or that may not have been considered otherwise (e.g., business logic data validation and integrity checks). Includes a manual review to identify false positives and a read-out call to explain findings.
