Bugcrowd Redefines Penetration Testing

Bugcrowd, a leader in crowdsourced security, has expanded significantly its penetration testing as a service (PTaaS) product line to include Basic Pen Test and Standard Pen Test, which are built purposefully for today’s digital business where continuous testing must keep pace with agile development.

These strategic additions expand the use cases covered by Bugcrowd’s PTaaS suite to cover customer needs, from basic assurance for simple web apps and networks to continuous, crowd-powered testing of complex apps, cloud services, mobile apps, APIs and IoT devices for maximum risk reduction.

Most pen test providers offer cumbersome, ad hoc consulting offerings that do not identify all risks and are hard to execute at scale. PTaaS solutions address these issues, but most don’t go far enough.  Bugcrowd delivers a modern, platform-powered approach, enabling organizations to keep innovating without compromising security.

With Bugcrowd’s expanded PTaaS product line, pen test buyers have an option for meeting every requirement and for every asset type:

  • Basic Pen Tests for rapid, basic vulnerability discovery and reporting
  • Standard Pen Tests for easy-to-launch, compliance-driven testing packaged to meet most customer requirements for common use cases for simple web apps, APIs and networks
  • Plus Pen Tests for meeting special needs around targets, testing times, geographic requirements, etc.
  • Max Pen Tests for continuous, maximum risk reduction

The trademarked Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform enables pen tests to run alongside Bugcrowd’s managed bug bounty, vulnerability disclosure programs, and other solutions as an integrated and orchestrated experience blending data, technology and human intelligence, with all findings flowing directly into the software development lifecycle. Bugcrowd’s PTaaS suite allows customers to:

  • Activate the right crowd at the right time leveraging the platform’s CrowdMatch ML technology, delivering a two-time increase in high-impact findings versus manual matching methods
  • Launch tests in days instead of weeks and get fresh eyes on target from Bugcrowd’s broad and diverse crowd
  • Use historical information to create standardized tests that reduce the need for contracted SOW discussions, while getting the intelligence of the aggregated experience of the platform, customer needs, and researchers to conduct the most relevant pen test scope
  • Get high-impact results that go beyond compliance checkboxes
  • See prioritized results and methodology progress in real-time via a rich PTaaS Dashboard experience
