The imposition of stringent regulatory policies and norms to adopt these practices is one of the key driving factors for global industry growth. Several regulations such as PCI DSS, SOX, GDPR, NIS, SOC2, and OWASP are mandated for adopting penetration testing in organizations. For instance, according to the GDPR Article 32, organizations are projected to execute a process for regular trying and assessing the competence of organizational and technical measures to ensure the security of data processing.


Moreover, as per the 2020 Pen Testing Report, 67% of surveyed cybersecurity professionals declared that compliance was the main reason for performing penetration tests. Therefore, the execution of strict regulations for regular penetration testing is surging the demand for the industry, thus, in turn, propels market growth over the forecast period.


Market participants such as Checkmarx, Acunetix, Coalfire Labs, Core Security, Fireeye, Cyberhunter Solutions, Hackerone, IBM, Immuniweb, Veracode, Isecurion, Indium Software, Micro Focus, Offensive Security, Netsparkar, Port Swigger, Rapid7, Raxis, Rhino Security Labs, Secureworks, and Vumeric Cybersecurity are some of the key players operating in the global market.


For instance, in April 2021, Velociraptor- leading open-source technology and community used for digital forensics, endpoint monitoring, and incident response, was acquired by Rapid7. This acquisition aims to build the Velociraptor community and control its technology and insight to improve Rapid7's incident response capabilities.
