The Economics of Penetration Testing for Web Application Security

By Outpost24


This white paper describes the critical role of pen testing for web applications. It explores the economics of “classic” pen testing and considers a variety of unseen costs and points of diminishing value. The paper concludes by describing a next-generation hybrid applicationsecurity-testing-as-a-service and how it can help bring the flexibility in applying both automated app testing tools (DAST) and the human expertise of ethical hackers (pen testing) to this challenge.
