Comparing Task-Based Testing To Traditional Consultancy

Delivering testing as small tasks means that we can be more focused than traditional testing; Meaning you’ll only pay for what you actually need. Not only does this keep costs within your control, it also means you can avoid repeating tests unnecessarily, meaning a higher return on investment.

Traditional Testing

It might take five days to test and write a PDF report. Six months of development might then introduce a new registration process and user role, and might address the six vulnerabilities originally uncovered, meaning that another five days are needed to repeat the process.


We can perform testing in line with your development roadmap; simply schedule the registration process task or user role tests until you’re ready. The results can then be delivered directly to your team and you can draw down from your validation credits to get vulnerabilities retested at no additional cost.

Return on Investment

In this example, Cytix would save you as much as 50% on the overall cost of testing across a year. Plus, the costing for testing and validations was all up-front so you could be confident about how your testing programme would impact your budget.

The results were then fed directly into the development team, reducing management overhead and streamlining the overall process.

What’s more, the incremental changes to the environment were scheduled for soon after each component was released, meaning that you didn’t have to wait for your next testing cycle to have confidence in your security.

As the old saying goes, "there are many ways to skin a cat", and for some organisations the old way might be perfectly adequate. However, we recommend you try task-based testing for yourself to see how it compares. If you're interested, just let us know!
