Security testing is a type of software testing that intends to uncover the vulnerabilities of the system and determine that its data and resources are protected from the possible intruders. This testing is used to verifying confidentiality, authority, integrity, authentication, availability, and non-repudiation of critical information present in a system. It identifies security gaps in system and to ensure whether IT infrastructure components such as devices, applications, servers, and networks are secure. Application security testing, network security testing, and device security testing are some major types of security testing. Security testing of any system is about finding all the possible loopholes and weaknesses of the system that may result in a loss of information, revenue, and repute at the hands of the employees or the outsiders of the organization.

Opportunity: Increasing adoption of cloud computing solutions & services and increasing number of data breaches would provide ample opportunities for the market growth.

The usage of cloud computing solutions is increasing rapidly across the globe, as the cost of cloud-based services is comparatively cheaper, and does not require the setting up of dedicated IT infrastructure. The rising usage of cloud-based solutions and services for manifold workloads such as email services, data backups, CRM, and collaboration services is anticipated to drive the growth of the security testing market in the near future. Cloud deployment increases the vulnerabilities in software, and makes it easily accessible for unauthorized users. Highly exposed data breaches involving large corporations targeted by hacking groups have contributed to raising the consciousness of cyber threats, as the effects of data breach on a company’s brand and consumer devotion can result in the loss of future revenue. Due to this, many organizations are shifting towards the adoption of cyber security solutions such as penetration testing, intrusion detection systems, and firewalls, to secure their workloads on the cloud without the risks of cyber threats.
