Company Summary

The current solution to web and mobile app security? A single expensive consultant up against 1,000s of hackers. The problem? It's not working. Bugcrowd runs managed bug bounties, where members of our curated crowd of 1500 security researchers compete to be the first to report security flaws for cash and kudos. Facebook, Google and Paypal have used this approach for years, now Bugcrowd makes it available to tech companies of all shapes and sizes.
