Organizations have limited budgets for test & security tools. The bigger the project, the more expensive the tools, further reducing the coverage. The group can’t buy all the tools it needs to validate all of their functional, performance, and security targets. What’s more, the team is unlikely to use the tool more than 10% of the time as they wait for resources.
Being part of the community allows for greater pooling of resources, including test tools. Some resources are provided at the site level, others are shared by members. Chances are, a tool you need for a test or security scan is available in our library.
