How Much Does Penetration Testing Cost?
As with time estimates, the cost of pen tests will depend upon the organization’s nature, client expectations, and other factors. Our security team can conduct a quick, painless scoping process to provide both time and cost estimates.
Some factors that may impact the overall cost include the number of live IP addresses, type of applications, overall data sensitivity, kind of test, etc. Generally, a white box test costs more than a black box test, but it may produce more valuable information in some cases.
Some security companies advertise a flat rate for their projects. Still, those promises suggest they’re offering the same off-the-shelf service to a small business as they are to an enterprise, which doesn’t indicate that anybody will get exactly what they need or pay what they should.
