Organizations are constantly under threat in an ever-changing and unpredictable world. It is imperative organizations have a strong first line of defense to protect themselves and their customers from cyber attacks. Bugcrowd provides customers the ability to do so through our Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™ that orchestrates data, technology, and human intelligence, including the power and agility of the global ethical hacker/security researcher community (the Crowd), to find blind spots before attackers do, and then remediate them more quickly.

We continuously strive to provide our customers with more and improved security protection, which is why we are excited to announce a new security defense to help customers keep their Bugcrowd programs even more secure: Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). 

Ensure your organization’s team members are authenticated before gaining access to your Bugcrowd programs

So what does this mean? As an organization owner you can enforce MFA at the organizational level for all your Bugcrowd powered solutions –  Attack Surface Management, Vulnerability Disclosure, Bug Bounty, and Penetration Testing as a Service. Once enabled, programs under the organization will require your company’s team members to set up MFA to gain access. If a team member doesn’t set up their MFA, then they will not be able to access your programs. MFA gives you an additional layer of security and confidence in who is accessing your programs. 

Plus, if you have MFA enabled at the organizational level, then any new Bugcrowd programs added under the organization will automatically have MFA enabled. This makes it easier for you to ensure all your Bugcrowd programs require MFA, and it is one less thing you need to remember or worry about!
