    Penetration testing helps you to find bugs and security loopholes in your software/website/app. Althrough, I can suggest you tools like above. But I would recommend to hire some penetration testing company like Kualitatem etc. to fix the issue. They are expert and have award winning team.

    Penetration testing is basically testing your application from security point of view and to find vulnerabilities. You can use Kali Linux which is basically a Linux distribution used for Penetration Testing, Ethical Hacking and network security assessments.

    To give you a better accurate definition about penetration testing, let's look at the 2 ways you can test for security.

    One way is by examining the system architecture and source code, this is called Static Analysis. This is like looking at the blue prints, counting the number of guards, and looking at the standard operating procedure manual, and identifying weakness.

    The other way is trying known exploits and trying to break the software (or at least cause irregular behavior that could prove a potential flaw), that is penetration testing. This would be like hiring an ex bank thief to try to break into your bank with permission.
