Softprom Signs a Partner Agreement with Bugcrowd to Democratize Crowdsourced Cybersecurity to Serve New Markets
June 12, 2023 — Value-added IT distributor Softprom and Bugcrowd, the only multi-solution crowdsourced cybersecurity platform provider, have signed a partner agreement covering Europe and much of central Asia. Softprom will now market and distribute Bugcrowd’s industry-leading Security Knowledge Platform™ in the European Union, Switzerland, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Moldova, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.
The partner relationship expands Bugcrowd’s ability to serve new markets and territories and highlights the company’s consistent growth within the channel ecosystem, as it is one of Bugcrowd’s channel first initiatives.
“Crowdsourcing is a global trend and we are pleased to offer IT security outsourcing services for corporate customers through our partner network. By selling services of the BugCrowd platform, such as ethical hackers from Eastern Europe, we help local economies and increase the security of our customer’s assets,” said Paul Zhdanovych, Managing Director at Softprom Group.
“Cybersecurity is a borderless issue; every organization in the world is a target. The cybersecurity skills shortage is also global, making it difficult for companies to retain the skills they need to secure their security posture, said Jason Cowie, VP of Global Channel Sales and Strategic Alliances, Bugcrowd. “This partnership is a step forward as we continue to level the cybersecurity playing field for everyone, everywhere to beat attackers at their own game.”
According to recent Qualys research, it takes attackers an average of just under twenty days to weaponize a vulnerability, while it takes defenders an average of thirty days to patch, leaving eleven days of potential exploitation. In our increasingly global and distributed workforce, organizations are realizing the need for continuous, real-time security solutions that establish a proactive, rather than reactive, security posture towards these aggressive and ever-evolving threats.
With this partner relationship, Softprom will market and distribute Bugcrowd’s multi-solution portfolio to its rich network of customers to address these increasing threats around the globe. Trusted by over 1,200 partners, Softprom increases customer effectiveness by providing high-quality IT solutions and services across thirty countries.

Vulnerability Disclosure Program (VDP)
- Bugcrowd vulnerability disclosure program (VDP) sets the rules of engagement for the public to submit vulnerability reports about public-facing assets and then coordinates how they’re handled internally. Also built on the Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™, Bugcrowd’s managed VDPs provide submission channels, triage, integration, and reporting, with data from thousands of past customer experiences informing everything that happens.
Attack Surface Management
- Bugcrowd’s ASM solution provides technology and data that enables customer organizations to uncover hidden or forgotten assets (Asset Inventory), and then assign and prioritize risk to them (Asset Risk). The most thorough assessment of attack surface risks available, Bugcrowd ASM goes far beyond what other solutions do to help understand, and assign risk to all digital assets.
