The Economics of Penetration Testing: Guide for Web Application Security

Understand the critical role (and true cost) of penetration testing.

Penetration testing is a very effective way of security testing vulnerabilities on your critical apps and can run as part of your development cycle. However, classic pen tests can sometimes cost more time and money than expected, which could cause delays in your workflow and impact the bottom line.

This white paper describes the critical role of pen testing for web applications. It explores the economics of “classic” pen testing and considers a variety of unseen costs and points of diminishing value. We also explore how implementing automation into your pen testing process can help relieve any pitfalls.
