Top Impacting Factors

High Adoption of Cloud Computing Solutions and Services

The usage of cloud computing solutions and services is increasing rapidly across the globe, owing to the fact that the cost of cloud-based services is comparatively cheaper and does not require the setting up of dedicated IT infrastructure. Moreover, cloud deployment increases the vulnerabilities in software and makes it easily accessible for unauthorized users. Furthermore, it helps organizations achieve a more comprehensive view of cloud assets. For instance, in July 2021, Snyk launched the Cloud Security Solution designed by and for developers to realize a fully featured cloud security solution that allows modern developers to continue their rapid pace of innovation securely. In addition, cloud computing solutions and services are in high demand for penetration testing as it is designed to assess the strengths and weaknesses of a cloud system to improve its overall security posture. Such demands are driving the growth of the penetration testing industry.

Increase in Number of Data Centers

An increasing number of data centers are a centralized cluster of computing and networking equipment, and opportunities emerge regularly. The industry is expected to see new opportunities for the data center sector. In addition, the volume of data that is consumed has expanded dramatically in recent years as a result of high-speed internet connections, improved industrial automation, and increased mobile device usage. This increase in data volume has created a huge opportunity for the data center sector. Furthermore, many companies in this industry are increasingly digitizing their operations and services, putting them in a stronger position to rely on data centers. Therefore, industries are enabling data centers to collect large amounts of data and security during the pandemic, which in turn is driving the growth of the penetration testing market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The penetration testing industry is projected to prosper in the COVID-19 situation, owing to various government, public, and other organizations adopting work from home culture for their employees. In addition, various IT & telecom industries are adopting penetration testing solution for improving the loss suffered, owing to the pandemic situation and to improve their market share. In addition, there is a significant increase in cyber-crime and data breaches in enterprises during the lockdown.

Moreover, lack of skilled IT professionals and highly skilled hackers has led to surge in cyber-crimes and security breaches in organizations. In addition, different enterprises adopted penetration testing solutions due to rise in number of data breaches and lack of security within the organization to prevent unauthorized access to enterprise information using the loopholes in the security systems. As a result, rise in number of data and security breaches during the COVID-19 pandemic in enterprises drives the market growth.

Analyst Review

A penetration testing is a type of software testing that reveals vulnerabilities, threats, and risks in a software application and prevents malicious attacks from intruders. Furthermore, growth of the security testing market is due to its ability to identify all possible loopholes and weaknesses of the software system, which might result in loss of information, revenue, repute at the hands of the employees, or outsiders of the organization. The security testing market has huge opportunities in the small, medium, and large-scale industries.

The global penetration testing market is expected to register high growth due to presence of stringent regulations and compliances mandating regular penetration testing practices, increasing sophistication of cyberattacks resulting in financial and reputational losses for organizations. Thus, increase in adoption of penetration testing, owing to its security is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the market. With surge in demand for penetration testing, various companies have established alliances to increase their capabilities. For instance, in September 2021, Apiiro partnered with NetSPI to combine Apiiro’s comprehensive Application Risk Management capabilities with NetSPI’s Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS). The partnership enables contextual and risk-based application penetration testing for its mutual customers.

In addition, with further growth in investment across the world and the rise in demand for penetration testing, various companies have expanded their current product portfolio with increased diversification among customers. For instance, in July 2022, Darktrace launched new set of AI products designed to deliver proactive security to help organizations pre-empt cyberthreats it works together autonomously to optimize an organization’s state of security through a continuous feedback loop. For instance, in June 2022, Bugcrowd, the leader in crowdsourced security launched Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) product line to include new offerings—Basic Pen Test and Standard Pen Test to cover the gamut of customer needs, from basic assurance for simple web apps and networks to continuous, crowd-powered testing of complex apps, cloud services, mobile apps, APIs, and IoT devices for maximum risk reduction.

Moreover, with increase in competition, major market players have started acquisition companies to expand their market penetration and reach. For instance, August 2021, Chess acquired penetration test provider Armadillo to deliver end to end services to enterprise customers.
