Penetration Testing as a Service

Leveraging regular and focused penetration testing exercises, Breadcrumb provides your team with actionable feedback throughout the year.


Traditional Penetration Testing is often described as an “annual event”, with testing exercises lasting multiple weeks to several months. While outcomes are valuable, they can be overwhelming, making remediation and prioritization efforts challenging. In worst-case scenarios, organizations end up with more questions than answers, and no clear direction forward.

Breadcrumb’s Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) tackles this challenge by offering on-going and regular micro-testing. Each calendar quarter, Breadcrumb will focus on one testing strategy, ensuring the scope is manageable and focused. The result? Your team gets actionable and pragmatic results  – all within budget.
