Posted by Kiran on November 15th, 2019

Penetration Testing Market Highlights:

Penetration test, also referred to as pen test, is a virtual cyber-attack launched against the computer system to check for probable flaws existing within the system. When integrated with web application security, penetration testing helps in augmenting the web application firewall (WAF). The global penetration testing market is anticipated to generate revenue of approximately USD 2.8 billion by 2023. The market is estimated to develop at 26% CAGR during the forecast period 2017-2023. Pen testing can deal with attempted breaching of several application systems, for instance frontend/backend servers and application protocol interfaces (APIs), to expose risks that are prone to code injection attacks.

The outcomes obtained from penetration test can find application in fine tuning the WAF security policies coupled with patch detected vulnerabilities. Penetration Testing Market is best carried out by contractors hired from external agencies who are typically known as ‘ethical hackers.’ They are hired to test the flaws and loopholes present in a system which they are not familiar with. The ethical hackers are provided with the access to the system and are permitted to enter it for the time being to detect the pitfalls, if any.

Penetration testing assists the developers in monitoring, testing, and enhancing the prevailing security procedures on supporting applications and information systems. The rise in demand for secured web applications to thwart against cyber-attacks and rise in internet penetration are some of the key driving forces for the development of penetration testing market during the forecast period.
