What is bug bounty?

Security threats are evolving, while the organization's IT systems and applications are constantly changing. Thus, organizations must regularly test their IT environment. A bug bounty is about using the power of crowdsourced security to secure your business. During a bug bounty program, a company can offer rewards to ethical hackers for reporting vulnerabilities.

The management of vulnerability disclosure is getting more and more important. The organizations have to implement procedures for the coordination of disclosing vulnerabilities to protect their data. Using our bug bounty platform can help you in the sensitive nature of vulnerability disclosure. Our global community of ethical hackers is a guarantee against software bugs.
