This page provides an overview of terms related to your organization’s contract with Cobalt. For detailed information, read our Terms & Conditions.

Learn what to expect when your organization’s contract is active or expires.

When Your Contract is Active

Once you’ve signed a contract with Cobalt and purchased credits, you get access to our Pentest as a Service (PtaaS) platform. You can start using your credits from the start date of your contract. Credits are not available prior to that date.

When your organization’s contract is active, you have full access to the platform, as determined by your user role. If your role allows, you can:

When Your Contract Expires

When your organization’s contract is about to expire, we notify you in advance. Organization users get notifications reminding them to renew the contract.

  • Be sure to start your pentests at least 30 days before your contract expires, if you have credits remaining.
    • The standard testing period is 14 days. It may vary depending on the pentest scope and other factors.
  • Submit your findings for retest at least 10 days before your contract expires. Learn more about the free retesting duration.
  • Download the data you need before we revoke your access to the platform.

After the contract expiration date, a 15-day grace period starts.

  • Within the grace period, you still have access to the platform. Be sure to download the data you need within this time frame.
  • Your remaining credits expire.
  • You can no longer submit pentests for review or findings for retest.

Once the grace period is over, we revoke access to the platform from all organization users. If you renew your contract, you’ll get full access to the platform and your organization data.
