While Penetration Testing is an important part of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and any Security Program, many organisations do not have the resources to maintain pen-testing teams. In addition to this there is a shortage of experienced Pen Testers available in the ANZ marketplace. Bug bounty programs alleviate this issue by leveraging the wider community to provide a functional equivalent to a penetration testing service. Bug bounty programs can be scaled according to organisational requirements.
Aquion partners with Bug crowd, a well-known international brand, that is trusted by enterprise organisations such as Atlassian to manage its bug bounty program.
Bug bounty programs leverage the knowledge and skills of a bettered global community of researchers to identify security issues within your organisation’s applications. Penetration testing costs add up and it is a persistent activity that organisation must constantly perform to ensure the on-going security of applications. Bug crowd has a tested bug bounty program relied on by major software publishers as well as global enterprises.
