Purchasing Standard Pen Test Through Self-Service

A Standard Pen test is a fixed pay-per-project model for your compliance needs.

Bugcrowd’s Standard Pen Test provides rapid access to on-demand testing on a set, per-project rate. Pen Test offers additional flexibility through add-ons like expedited testing, additional reports, and retesting. With expedited testing, the report is delivered within 10 days of test ending.

While only credit cards are accepted through self-service for Web Application Pen Tests and Network Pen Tests, you can still purchase through a purchase order via a Bugcrowd representative. In all cases, you will still be able to complete the onboarding in the platform to provide details required for setup.

If you wish to use Pen Test for Mobile App, Cloud, API, IoT, or Social engineering testing you can click the Get a Quote tab and proceed with help from Bugcrowd staff or directly contact sales@bugcrowd.com. All subscriptions are on an annual basis.

The information you provide during setup defines your Pen Test’s configuration inclusions and exclusions:

  • Program scope and rewards.
  • Helping Bugcrowd identify the correct skills and experience from the crowd to ensure the best matched testers for your Pen Test.
  • Providing the ability to provision testing credentials prior to launch.

You can purchase a Pen Test through self service either from Bugcrowd website or from the Bugcrowd platform.
