Our story

We exist to protect and secure businesses in the digitally connected world

Traditionally, organizations seeking to improve their security posture engage a a single service provider for services like pen testing, source code analysis, and attack surface mapping.

This process is slow, heavy, and expensive — and you often have no guarantee you’re going to get good results or just glossy PDF reports.

We deliver a radical cybersecurity advantage

The Bugcrowd Platform connects a skilled security researchers and companies both small and large.

Our customers (who are often but not always tech companies) create a program, define the scope, set reward bounties and open the doors to the crowd of security researchers. Often the first severe bugs are found within hours — a dramatic speed and time advantage over slower, traditional testing or auditing.

We believe in a world where no one is blindsided by cyber attacks

The Bugcrowd Platform offers customers a fine degree of control over their programs.

Customers specify which technologies are desirable in researcher skillsets — eg. Android or iOS — which might be critical if the product is not a website, but a mobile app, hardware device or even a modern car.

They also control program access and visibility, eg. private and by invite, or accessible only to specific sets of researchers.
