The Total Economic Impact™ Of HackerOne Challenge


HackerOne provides security and compliance penetration (pen) testing services that help its customers identify and remediate real-world security vulnerabilities. HackerOne commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by utilizing its Challenge service. This is a one-time engagement (repeatable as desired) in which ethical hackers test designated systems and applications for vulnerabilities. HackerOne also provides report analysis, a.k.a. triage services, and remediation recommendations as part of the offering. Prior to using HackerOne, the customers performed traditional pen testing to look for vulnerabilities and meet compliance requirements. However, these missed many vulnerabilities, including critical ones, and were mainly a “check-the-box” activity.
