Since launching new self-service capabilities within our Penetration Testing as a Service offering last month, we’ve already seen wide recognition of the technology’s ability to empower buyers to purchase, set up, and manage pen tests directly online, cutting out the need for lengthy sales calls and scoping sessions. 

In 2023 alone, Bugcrowd, and in particular these new PTaaS capabilities, has won five distinct industry awards. This recent string of wins demonstrates Bugcrowd’s persistence in delivering industry-leading solutions to the market and validation as an accomplished and preeminent organization throughout cybersecurity.

Most recently, our team was recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine’s Global InfoSec Awards as a Hot Company in the Penetration Testing Category for our PTaaS capabilities, along with being recognized as a Gold Winner in the 19th Annual Globee® Cyber Security Awards for the technology. Additionally, Bugcrowd PTaaS was recognized as the Gold Winner in the Pentest-as-a-Service category in the 2023 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards among North American companies between 1,000 and 5,000 employees.

As an organization, we took home two more wins in the Cybersecurity Excellence Award program with recognition as Gold Winner for Cybersecurity Provider of the Year and Silver Winner for Best Cybersecurity Company.

For one, I am so proud to see all of these incredible wins. It’s a huge testament to our stellar team and technology! At Bugcrowd, we are committed to delivering the very best crowdsourced solutions to our customers and ultimately fulfilling our mission to democratize security testing for all.

Our team has taken major strides over the course of the past year to walk out this mission, including a major upgrade to our PTaaS offering, all aimed at staying at the forefront of innovation and leadership within a very saturated cybersecurity market. With a surge of vendors offering security testing solutions, a common concern that we hear is that vulnerability assessments in the market today are often shallow and low impact. 

Our goal was to provide a human-driven, high-impact pen test with a team matched to their precise needs with just a few clicks, cutting configuration time from days to hours. These recent award wins validate our work and the direction we’ve been laser-focused on. By focusing our priorities on our employees, the hacker community, partners and vendors, we are excited to build upon this momentum throughout 2023!
