Cobalt Credits Provide a Flexible Consumption Model

A Cobalt Credit is a standardized unit of work that represents 8 pentesting hours. Credits provide flexibility in both planning and executing pentests. They are sold in annual packages that include asset scoping, retesting, unlimited platform access, and more.

You can think of a Cobalt Credit as a virtual voucher that you consume whenever a manual pentesting need arises, meaning you can get a pentest up and running within days, compared to weeks with traditional services. Instead of being tied to a traditional ‘all in scope’ assessment, you can tailor and distribute the amount of work based on the complexity of your asset(s).
