Bug bounties are a pay-for-results approach to proactive security testing designed to maximize discovery of high-impact vulnerabilities. Through managed bug bounty programs, organizations are given access to thousands of highly skilled and thoroughly vetted security researchers ready to help organizations find vulnerabilities other tools miss.

The global nature of the Crowd means 24/7 talent availability, with launch timelines that blow traditional utilization-based models out of the water. Platform-powered solutions also include 24/7 vulnerability visibility and reporting, high-touch researcher management, and seamless business process integration with your development team’s favorite ticketing and vulnerability management solutions.
