The global penetration testing software market is expected to grow from US$ 1,411.9 million in 2021 to US$ 4,045.2 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 14.4% from 2021 to 2028.

Compliance is one of the most critical issues that an organization must address, as any failures can have far-reaching consequences.Not only do government-required regulations and industry standards’ bodies often require compliance for organizations to meet or maintain certification, but client organizations may also require verifiable conformity to conduct business.

Unfortunately, this has resulted in a Pass/Fail approach to many security aspects, as excellence has fallen victim to expediency.As a result, penetration tests are sometimes misunderstood as check-the-box activities to meet expectations.

On the other hand, penetration tests can help to improve security posture when done correctly.

Furthermore, Penetration testing software market is required by regulations such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), SOC2, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), OWASP, and Network and Information Security (NIS), and failure with such regulations results in substantial fines imposed on enterprises.According to RedScan, enterprises are required to develop a procedure for regularly testing and reviewing the efficiency of technological and organizational measures to maintain data processing security under GDPR Article 32.

Obtaining information on technical security vulnerabilities, evaluating exposure to these vulnerabilities, and taking appropriate steps to address the associated risks in a timely way are all requirements of ISO 27001’s objective A.12.6.1. Penetration testing is also required annually or after any significant modifications to infrastructure, according to PCI DSS 3.2 Requirement 11. As a result, strict rules requiring regular penetration testing boost the demand for penetration testing software market.

In terms of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the penetration testing software market throughout the key verticals, North America had the biggest market share.The pandemic has had a significant impact on North America due to a high number of immigrants traveling through the region, the lack of an initial stage lockdown in the country, and the presence of a large number of virus carriers in the country at the same time, spreading the disease rapidly.
