Drawing the economic line between manual and automated testing is about understanding where a human is needed, versus where a technology might be able to accomplish the result in an effective way.

If you look at an individual change that occurs within a business and you understand whether that change can be tested fully and effectively by a particular tool, then you're able to reduce the amount of burden on security testers, people who are expensive and slow.

This then means that you're able to get the most out of them because they're not concentrating on the things that, put simply, could be done at the click of a button and likely with a form of well-tuned, open source alternative.
