Penetration Testing Market Overview:

A penetration test is a decisive evaluation of the security and user-safety of an IT infrastructure by exploiting its vulnerabilities without compromising its safety. These vulnerabilities exist in different OSs, services, and applications, e.g. webpages and networks. Irregular configurations or careless user behavior. Therefore, penetration tests or assessments are useful in verifying the efficiency of defensive layers of different networks, as well as user conformity to security regulations. Penetration testing is usually done manually or through automated methods to comprehensively compromise servers, web applications, wireless networks, and devices, and other potential loose ends of security.

The market report presents a detailed view of the global penetration testing market by type, deployment, industry, major players, and key regions and countries, market share, and growth opportunities. The report also has a thorough analysis of the competitive landscape of the global penetration testing market.

Penetration Testing Market Dynamics:

A major driver of the global Penetration Testing Market is the strict regulation policies imposed by the government on companies which mandate that companies do penetration tests regularly or they will be penalized. Some popular directives include NIS (Network and Information systems) and SOC (Systems Organization and Control). Another driving factor of the global market is the surge of penetration testing as a service (PTaaS). This helps IT, professionals, to organize and execute penetration tests on different apps. A major restraint in the global market is the high costs of penetration tests. A penetration costs around US$ 3500 for SMEs and around US$90,000 for large organizations. Since these tests are mandated by government policies businesses have no choice but to allocate a certain portion of their revenue for these tests. This trend in the global penetration testing market is projected to hamper the overall market growth in the forecast period (2021-2027). The key challenge in the global penetration testing market is the unavailability of skilled cyber-security experts required to run a penetration test. Many industries hire professionals to track and rectify security threats in their IT infrastructures; however, these people sometimes don’t have the skills needed to avoid a cyber-attack. Penetration testing is an expensive test, if it is not carried out by certified professionals; it could result in revenue losses for the companies.

Penetration Testing Market Segment Analysis:

By Type, the segments are Web Application Penetration Testing, Mobile Application Penetration Testing, Network Penetration Testing, and Other. Mobile application is projected to grow at the CAGR of 6.8% in the forecast period (2021-2027). This growth can be attributed to the high demand for E-Commerce apps like Amazon and Zomato in the global IT market. There are continuous data breaches in E-commerce giants like Amazon and Facebook. Penetration testing is projected to help identify the potential breach or vulnerability in these apps. The personal data of over 530 million Facebook users was leaked online in April 2021. It included personal phone numbers, e-mail addresses other biographical information of global users of the app. These frequent data breaches of global social media giants are projected to contribute to the penetration testing market growth in the same forecast period. Penetration Testing Market 1 By Industry, Government, and Defense along with the Banking and Finance sector held the first and the second largest positions in the global penetration testing market in the year 2020. In 2020, the United States federal government database was breached by Russian hackers. Therefore cyber-attacks on government databases like these are projected to drive the growth of the government and defense segment in the global market in the aforementioned forecast period. In March 2021, A US financial firm CNA was the target of a ransomware attack that disrupted employee and customer services for more than three days. In the same month, the country’s Federal Trade Commission had issued an alert about an e-mail scam in the COVID-19 stimulus benefits offered by the governments. Recurring attacks like these on financial institutions on a global scale is projected to help the overall growth of the Banking and Financial segment of the penetration testing market.

Global Penetration Testing Market Regional Insights:

The North American region dominated the global penetration testing market in the year 2020. In December 2020, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States became targets of a cybercriminal group associated with FIN 11 which exploited vulnerabilities in Accellion’s Legacy File Transfer systems. In the same month, the Director of the FBI, Christopher Wray warned banks to be on alert for third parties exploiting vulnerabilities in the networks of financial institutions. These frequent malware and ransomware attacks in countries like the US and Canada are projected to influence the global penetration testing market. The APAC region followed the North American region in terms of shares in the global penetration testing market in 2020. This can be attributed to various security measures deployed by companies after the outbreaks of many malware attacks in the region. For example, In November 2020, security scientists found that a common security application used by South Korean banks and government agencies had been compromised through a supply chain attack. Similarly in October 2020, the Indonesian Fintech company reported that over 3 million users’ data was leaked and sold on a hacker forum. These attacks prompted many regulations in the penetration testing of webpages and applications in this region. Furthermore, the European Central Bank also witnesses a defect in their network which disrupted their system for more than 10 hours. These defects are projected to impact the growth of the penetration testing market in the European region.
