Bugcrowd Simplifies Pen Tests

Bugcrowd, a multi-solution crowdsourced cybersecurity platform, announced new capabilities in its penetration testing as a service (PTaaS) offering that enables buyers to purchase, set up,and manage pen tests directly online without a need for lengthy sales calls and scoping sessions.

PTaaS is one of several solutions delivered on the trademarked Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform.

Legacy pen test solutions are slow, nontransparent, and low impact, and other PTaaS providers deliver what are often shallow vulnerability assessments – with neither offering access to pen tester skill sets that customers need.

Bugcrowd enables customers to buy, set up, and launch a human-driven, high-impact pen test with a team matched to precise needs with a few clicks, cutting configuration time from days to hours.

Bugcrowd’s Standard Pen Tests for external Web apps and external networks are available in three sizes through the new self-service experience. Bugcrowd offers a platform-driven PTaaS through its Security Knowledge Platform, which includes a Pen Test Dashboard for real-time access to test status, analytics, prioritized findings and methodology progress.

And the Bugcrowd Platform’s proprietary CrowdMatch technology uses machine learning to match precisely the right trusted testers to customer needs on demand based on a variety of parameters, such as skill sets, availability and ability to deliver high-quality results.

Bugcrowd is showcasing these enhancements during the RSA Conference, today through Thursday in San Francisco:
