Unlock the State of Pentesting 2023! Explore 3,100 pentests with expert insights on vulnerabilities, security challenges, & maximizing pentest value.


Security is not a band-aid. You can’t “inject” it or bolt it on after the fact. Security results from the decisions and actions of many different people.

That’s why our mission is to let security dance.

Security is the outcome of an unpredictable mix of movements. At Cobalt, we are building a collaborative approach that unites people and makes sure everyone gets an invite to the party: development, security, operations. We believe that, with everyone working together, we can revolutionize traditional pentesting – and create a more secure world.
