Penetration Testing Market

To get more info about this report - 

Penetration testing, also known as pen testing or ethical hacking, is a method of testing the security of a computer system, network, or web application by simulating an attack by a malicious actor. The objective of penetration testing is to identify vulnerabilities in the system, such as weak passwords, unsecured ports, outdated software, and misconfigurations, and provide recommendations to address them before an actual attack occurs. Penetration testing is a crucial aspect of cybersecurity, as it helps organizations identify potential security gaps in their systems and prevent cyber-attacks that could result in data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage. By conducting a penetration test, organizations can evaluate their overall security posture, determine the effectiveness of their security controls, and assess the ability of their security team to detect and respond to a real attack.

The Penetration Testing market is being driven by several factors, including the increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks, the implementation of data privacy regulations, the adoption of cloud computing, the growth of mobile and IoT devices, and the need for comprehensive security solutions that cover all aspects of IT infrastructure. As a result, organizations are becoming more aware of the importance of identifying vulnerabilities in their systems and preventing potential cyber-attacks, leading to a growing demand for Penetration Testing services.

By Deployment Synopsys:

The on-premise segment held approximately 60% of the revenue share in 2022. The on-premises deployment model gives organizations control and flexibility. On-premises mode is primarily used by large organizations because large enterprises in various verticals are highly regulated and contain more sensitive information than SMEs, necessitating greater data control. These requirements are slated to drive the deployment of penetration testing software and services on-premises. Corporate data can now be easily accessed from mobile devices, which has increased the volume of data transfer among business parties while also increasing the risk of cyber-attacks and data loss. To reduce risks, organizations use the on-premises deployment model for their corporate data.

By Component Synopsys:

The penetration testing market is divided into solution and services offerings, with the latter involving a pen testing professional who closely examines the system and provides proof of concept for each finding, along with a possible remediation plan. The segments growth is being driven by outsourcing trends, globalization, and the need for compliance and value-added services. 

Furthermore, expert testing increases the efficiency of penetration testing by reducing false positives, allowing organizations to focus on improving their overall security infrastructure. Therefore, the services segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
