Penetration Testing Market by Offering (Software and Services), Type (Web Applications, Mobile Applications, Network Infrastructure, Social Engineering, Cloud), Organization Size, Deployment Mode, Vertical and Region – Global Forecast to 2027

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global Penetration Testing Market size is expected to grow from an estimated value of USD 1.4 billion in 2022 to 2.7 billion USD by 2027, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.7% from 2022 to 2027. The presence of stringent regulations and compliances mandating regular penetration testing practices, increasing sophistication of cyberattacks resulting in financial and reputational losses for organizations, and increased internet penetration and use of smartphones resulting in a surge in mobile-based business-critical applications are some of the factors that are driving the market growth.

What is Penetration Testing?

MarketsandMarkets defines penetration testing, “as a simulated cyberattack against a computer system to check for exploitable vulnerabilities by using the same techniques, processes, and tools that are used by a cyber intruder.”

By deployment mode, the cloud segment is projected to grow with a higher CAGR during the forecast period

An authorised simulated cyberattack on a system that is hosted on a cloud provider, such as Microsoft Azure or Amazons AWS, is known as cloud-based penetration testing. Finding a systems vulnerabilities and strengths allows for an accurate assessment of its security situation, which is the fundamental goal of a cloud penetration test. Increased technical assurance and a greater comprehension of the attack surface that the systems are exposed to are two main advantages of a cloud penetration test. Whether they are Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, or Software as a Service, cloud systems are susceptible to security vulnerabilities, attacks, and threats similar to traditional systems. Despite cloud service providers providing more effective security measures, it is ultimately the organizations responsibility to secure its cloud-based operations. As a result, businesses must use penetration testing services for the cloud both now and in the future.

By Type, the web application segment to hold a larger market size during the forecast period

With an increase in the use of web applications, the business process has changed along with sharing and accessing data. Because of this, malicious attackers get an opportunity to intrude into the system. Therefore, web application pen testing has become important to defend the application and network. Web application penetration testing simulates unauthorized attacks internally or externally to access sensitive data. This process helps end users discover the possibility for a hacker to access the data from the internet, check out the security of their email servers, and secure the web hosting site and server. Furthermore, the outcomes of web application penetration testing help identify and mitigate the security weaknesses in web applications and other components, such as source code, back-end network, and database associated with application penetration testing.

Unique Features in the Penetration Testing Market

In order to find vulnerabilities in an organization’s systems, networks, and applications and to provide insights into potential security risks and weaknesses, penetration testing simulates actual intrusions.

Penetration testing provides detailed evaluations and risk mitigation by assessing an organization’s security posture across a broad range of attack vectors, including network, web, mobile, cloud, and physical security.

Expertise in ethical hacking techniques and specialised skills enable penetration testers to circumvent security measures, exploit vulnerabilities, and evaluate defence systems’ durability from the viewpoint of an attacker.

By identifying significant vulnerabilities and potential security breaches that pose the most damage to corporate operations, data confidentiality, and regulatory compliance, penetration testing assists organisations in prioritising security issues.

Penetration tests are customised to meet the individual needs and features of any company, taking into account the threat landscape, infrastructure complexity, and industry-specific legislation to provide relevant and useful information.

Major Highlights of the Penetration Testing Market

Continuous testing techniques, which provide organisations regular reporting, actionable insights, and continuous visibility into their security posture to support risk management and decision-making, are the evolution of penetration testing.

Businesses spend money on red team exercises, in which knowledgeable security experts mimic actual intrusions to assess reaction and detection skills, find security control weaknesses, and enhance overall cyber resilience.

By integrating penetration testing with DevSecOps processes, security testing may be carried out earlier in the software development lifecycle, encouraging security by design and speeding up vulnerability mitigation.

The market for penetration testing is witnessing a surge in the usage of automated testing platforms and tools, which facilitates quicker and more effective evaluations of extensive networks, applications, and environments.

Penetration testing providers handle industry-specific legislation, compliance needs, and threat landscapes by providing specialised services catered to businesses including finance, healthcare, government, and retail.

According to MnM’s market evaluation framework, most companies opt for inorganic growth strategies to maintain their position in the market. The number of deals increased by around 50-60% relatively in the period 2020-2021. These deals collectively include partnerships, acquisitions, collaborations, and alliances. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there was a sudden decline in product launches and business expansion activities. However, from 2021 onwards, companies are expected to follow organic growth strategies to provide Penetration Testing solutions and services to end users, which, on the other hand, would help companies in increasing their market revenue.
