VAPT Pricing – How Much Does a Website VAPT Cost?

Taking about VAPT, it is a popular notion that to beat a hacker, you have to think like a hacker. Penetration testing experts assess organization’s network environments, identify probable security loopholes, and try to exploit these loopholes to strengthen the security of systems and make them impenetrable against any cyberattack.

The average cost for a single website penetration test is usually based on the scope of testing and application’s parameters. We at Astra Security offer 3 website security audit pricing as follows:

How much is VAPT Cost ?

The VAPT pricing varies as per the range of the audit and a few other metrics. That said, most penetration testing pricing comes between $500 to $10,000 for a single scan for a website or mobile app. These prices are also susceptible to a variation of specific systems. The cost of the scanning tools used by the testing provider also influences the final pricing of the VAPT services.

One of the foremost factors to consider determining the VAPT cost is the complex nature of the clients’ organization. For those organizations that have a complex and distributed computing network with several network devices along with compartmentalized network segments. Determining the cost of VAPT will need the service provider to factor in the potential attack vectors for a specific organization.

Another determinant of the final fee for VAPT is the scope of the pentest. The VAPT scope would largely influence the final quote to be provided as the testing provider. The testing provider may also charge extra fee to repair any security flaws that were discovered during the process of carrying out website pentest.
