2020 State of Penetration Testing

Penetration tests are an integral part of compliance initiatives like PCI-DSS and SOC 2. Yet only 18% of organizations that pen test do so for compliance alone. A growing majority seek additional return on investment, to expedite go-to-market, reduce risk, and build consumer trust.

Providers have pivoted to respond to expanded requirements, with additional technology and training for pentesters on staff. However with 56% of consumers still dissatisfied with results, the issue may be less the pentesters, as much as the “on staff.”

Crowdsourced security offers a new solution for retaining, matching, and deploying pen test talent to fill the gaps created by an increasingly resource-constrained market. With immediate access to the right talent, and workflow integrations that enable greater visibility and control, Bugcrowd offers businesses another choice for their compliance, security, and business objectives.
