Bugcrowd is proud to have been named a “Leader” by respected research company GigaOm in its 2022 Radar Report for Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS). 

The report assesses PTaaS vendors to help security decision-makers select the best fit for their business and use case requirements pertaining to penetration testing. Report author Chris Ray observes that “While pen testing is quite mature, the PTaaS space is young. For this reason, the definition of PTaaS—and PTaaS solutions—will likely evolve over the next few years as the space matures.”

In the assessment, Bugcrowd earned “Exceptional” scores for key criteria such as Automated Workflows and Use of Crowdsourced Pentesters, as well as for Solution Ecosystem, Feature Set, and Speed. Per report author Ray:

  • “Bugcrowd, a long-time player in the bug bounty space, has extended successfully into the PTaaS market and brings with it years of engineering experience.”
  • “Automation is a central component of a good PTaaS solution, and Bugcrowd has made it a priority to use automation to streamline as much of pen testing as possible.”
  • “The Bugcrowd PTaaS solution delivers strong automation capabilities that achieve real-world time savings for clients…Bugcrowd is a feature-rich, broadly applicable PTaaS solution.”
