Methodology Driven Reports

Bugcrowd’s BugHunter™ Methodology blends OWASP Top 10 (PCI, NIST, Hi Trust, etc), with industry best practices for optimal coverage and vulnerability identification

Top Pen Testers and Researchers

Bugcrowd’s crowd of top talent consists of thousands of Pen Testers and elite Researchers with a variety of skills across web, network, API, mobile device, IoT, reverse engineering, and more. Bugcrowd also delivers strict ID and/or background checks if required for any engagement

Continuous Vulnerability Assessment

Unlike time-boxed assessments, NGPT programs runs 24/7/365 to reflect agile software development cycles. Rather than being paid for time only, Pen Testers and Researchers are motivated to find critical vulnerabilities by reward for results as well as effort.

Named Customer Success Manager

Bugcrowd assigns a known person to help guide you through every program, including routine check-ins and QBRs as required

Jira Integration

Improves Security Development Lifecycle by streamlining interaction with Dev Team and their Software Development Lifecycle.

Vulnerability Rating Taxonomy (VRT™)

Bugcrowd reduces overhead for customers by leveraging years of collated learning on the severity and impact of vulnerabilities, in order to better validate and prioritize submissions.

Managed Social Model

Managed social to ensure no accidental disclosures of vulnerabilities. We work with you & the Pen Testers and Researchers to promote responsible disclosures.

Target Management

Manage multiple different programs simultaneously with platform telemetry reporting for each target.

Triage SLA

SLAs ranging from less than 8 hours to less than 48 hours depending on severity

Remediation Advice

Expert advice mapped to the VRT rankings assigned to every submission
