Enterprises are facing challenges in keeping up with rapid IT changes, as highlighted in a recent report by Pentera.


Despite investing an average of $164,400 in pentesting programs [2], only 40% of organizations conduct pentesting at the same frequency as IT environment changes [3]. This gap has resulted in 51% of enterprises experiencing breaches in the past 24 months. Resource constraints are a barrier for 36% of organizations, with security teams overwhelmed by the volume of security events [1] [2] [3].


The findings underscore the importance of proactive risk validation in today’s dynamic threat landscape [2]. With insights from 450 IT security leaders, the report sheds light on the evolving cybersecurity landscape. Addressing resource constraints and increasing the frequency of pentesting can help enterprises mitigate breaches and stay ahead of IT changes.
