Bugcrowd offers outsourced ‘bug bounty’ security testing. Bug bounties provide unprecedented coverage of security issues, but they are expensive and resource-intensive to run — beyond the means of all but large corporates and tech giants, such as Google and Facebook.
Bugcrowd makes ‘bug bounty’ programs accessible and affordable. Bugcrowd provides enterprise customers with a technology platform and a vetted community of security testers to allow them to outsource their ‘bug bounty’ program. Bugcrowd customers are able to perform penetration testing on their web and mobile platforms using a burgeoning community of security researchers vetted by Bugcrowd and competing for cash ‘bounties’ as well as community status.
