According to our recent survey of 200 security leaders, 56% are dissatisfied with their current pen test efforts, and 70% say they don’t believe their current pen test methodology uncovers priority security vulnerabilities. This is because while organizations perform pen tests with the goal of identifying all vulnerabilities on a target, what they receive is far more limited.
In fact, 70% of security leaders report they do not receive coverage analysis with their current pen tests and 85% are unable to integrate pen test results into the software development lifecycle. More than half of all security teams spend at least 75 hours per pen test to triage and validate the findings and results. That is a lot of time and money that could be spent elsewhere.
The bottom line: organizations spend millions of dollars a year on pen tests, without seeing any value. The traditional pen test model is constrained by limited resources, with limited depth, on a limited schedule. That model is dead.
Next Gen Pen Test brings the best of the crowdsourced security model to take pen tests to the next level, disrupting the current pen test market with three distinct differentiators:
- Continuous coverage
- Proven pen testers and whitehat hackers
- SDL integrations
