• By Type, Mobile Applications to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period

The application areas of penetration testing include web applications, mobile applications, network infrastructure, cloud, and social engineering.Mobile application penetration testing is used for mobile-based applications.

Mobile has become an important tool in our daily life.Due to the increment in the usage of mobile devices, the users in this segment have surged.

The application in mobile consists of sensitive data, and protecting the data used by mobile apps is becoming critically important.At the organization level, BYOD policies allow employees to connect their mobile devices to enterprise networks which allows an opportunity for hackers to penetrate the network.

Hence, the need to secure mobile applications has become crucial. Mobile application users are becoming aware of various threats, and thus, the deployment of mobile application penetration testing is rapidly increasing. This has led to the highest CAGR of mobile applications in the forecasted period.
• By Vertical, the BFSI vertical account for a larger market size during the forecasted period.

Data security and privacy are the main concerns of today’s financial world.With rigorous legislations, such as GDPR, PCI DSS, and RBI Act, financial companies are now forced to ensure customer security and brand confidence.
