Pentesting is the practice of testing an application (web, mobile, or API) or network for weaknesses that an attacker could exploit. Any weaknesses, or vulnerabilities, discovered during a pentest are evaluated to determine their level of risk. Organizations then have the responsibility to fix these vulnerabilities, or accept their risk. Pentesting can help developers ensure their code is secure.
Pentest as a Service (PtaaS) allows organizations of all sizes to manage a scalable, efficient pentest program with on-demand access to expert security talent and a modern SaaS delivery platform. With integrations into security and development tools and real-time collaboration with pentesters, PtaaS enables modern DevSecOps teams to secure their code faster.
Cobalt offers pentesting for a variety of use cases, including compliance testing, new release testing, delta testing, exploitable vulnerability testing, single OWASP category testing, and microservice testing.
