New Bugcrowd Priority One Report dives into the state of crowdsourced security in 2019
Bugcrowd, the #1 crowdsourced security company, today released the Priority One Report, indicating a 93% increase in total vulnerabilities reported and an 83% increase in average payouts per vulnerability, nearly double over last year.
The Priority One Report provides an inside look into crowdsourced security trends in 2019, as well as a deep dive into emerging and critical vulnerabilities found over the previous year. This year’s report signals to the growing security maturity of the market and an uptick in adoption of crowdsourced security solutions. Bug bounty payouts continue to rise, with critical vulnerabilities reaching nearly $2,700 at an almost 30% increase over last year.
“Priority One tells the story of the breaches that never became headlines,” said David Baker, CSO of Bugcrowd. “Crowdsourced security continues to uncover 10 times the security bugs than traditional security assessment methods, demonstrating the true power of the Crowd. With numbers trending upward, we’re seeing a monumental shift in adoption to keep pace with growing attack vectors.”
Among the top vulnerabilities submitted over the last year, four of five represent systemic issues with critical impact.
Other key takeaways from the report include:
Bugcrowd’s Priority One Report analyzes proprietary platform data collected from thousands of crowdsourced security programs and hundreds of thousands of vulnerability submissions through the Bugcrowd platform since 2012.
