Cobalt Credits

We offer a flexible consumption model.

A Cobalt credit is a standardized unit of work that represents 8 pentesting hours.

You can think of a Cobalt credit as a virtual voucher that you consume whenever you want to run a pentest. We offer 3 subscription plans, also known as PtaaS tiers, to best suit your budget and testing goals. Learn more about our pricing model.

1 credit = 8 pentesting hours

Cobalt offers a flexible, on-demand consumption model to meet the modern pentesting needs of all security and development teams. We sell credits in annual packages. You can buy credits in advance and use them throughout the year based on your pentesting schedule.

The number of credits needed for a pentest depends on the pentest scope. For more information, see Plan and Scope the Pentest.
