In a consumer climate that increasingly values security as a buying necessity, Bugcrowd is making it easier than ever to achieve and demonstrate commitment to security best practices.  Assess your organization’s security posture against your own internal metrics, industry peers, and even competitors with Bugcrowd for secure marketplaces, and new program health and industry benchmark reporting.

Bugcrowd for Secure Marketplaces

Revenue for marketplace platform providers is predicted to more than double from $18.7 billion in 2017 to $40.1 billion in 2022. While centralized purchase points are handy,  there’s another major motivator driving rapid adoption of this model — trust. Consumers trust marketplace and app store owners to verify the apps they offer, and apps are motivated in turn to keep their customers safe. However, providing full, continuous coverage across stores and individual apps can be a financially and operationally draining exercise. Until now.

Bugcrowd for Secure Marketplaces simplifies the adoption and management of Bug Bounty, Vulnerability Disclosure, and Next Gen Pen Test solutions for applications and the app stores that  host them. As noted by Adrian Ludwig, CISO at Atlassian, “Transparency is core to building trust between Atlassian and our customers. For two years, our bug bounty program with Bugcrowd has allowed us to leverage the collective expertise of the security industry to build better products and raise awareness around cybersecurity and safe practices. With Bugcrowd for Secure Marketplaces, we’re excited to extend those efforts to a very important part of our business: the Atlassian Marketplace.”

Key benefits for Marketplace owners include:
  • Individual program health visibility, and on-demand reporting and industry benchmarking 
  • Fully-managed crowdsourced security programs with expert researchers and pen testers personalized to every engagement
  • Purpose-built methodologies to meet the requirements of the individual marketplace.
Key benefits for Marketplace applications include:
  • Faster acceptance into the marketplace with rapid Bugcrowd security assessments
  • Subsidized platform and program access — pay only for verified vulnerabilities
  • Personalized program health reports and on-demand program reporting and dashboards
  • Fully managed vulnerability triage and prioritization by Bugcrowd 
  • SDLC integrations for workflow management
  • Remediation advice to fix faster and build better.

Security Intelligence through Reporting & Benchmarking

Bugcrowd believes in the power of accessible and actionable security intelligence. We also know that the metrics you use to measure security operations are just as dynamic as your business. To make it even easier to report on what matters most, Bugcrowd has added in-platform reporting to better assess and monitor program health.

Enhanced Reporting

With 7+ year program and vulnerability intelligence, Bugcrowd is the industry leader in enabling lasting success for crowdsourced security programs. With enhanced reporting, we’re helping customers better monitor and share those successes across their business. 

Benchmarking Success

To assess the performance of any security program, knowing where you stand in relation to industry peers can be invaluable. With industry benchmarking, Bugcrowd now provides customers the ability to assess and modify program details like payouts, engagement, and vulnerabilities to better align with market standards, improve reputation amongst customers, or compete for top talent. 

Scaling with Bugcrowd

Bugcrowd is changing the way organizations think of security at scale, with the only true SaaS solution for on-demand and continuous crowdsourced security testing.

Backed by an elastic crowd of over 100k trusted white hat hackers, our award winning platform provides intelligent skill matching, workflow standardization, and remediation advice to help companies like Tesla and MasterCard protect their critical assets at a fraction of the cost per vulnerability of other testing methods.
