Bugcrowd has launched the CrowdConnect Partner Program to empower global partners to leverage the crowd to defend against today’s fast moving cyber adversaries.
The company says CrowdConnect offers deal protection with healthy margins and rewarding partners benefits for value and volume, rather than other programs in the market driven by complex and shifting tiers.
In FY24, Bugcrowd has signed 40 new partners within CrowdConnect. Unlike other competitors in the crowdsourced security space, 100% of Bugcrowd’s reward pools goes to hackers, in line with the company’s mission to unite and empower the collective ingenuity of the hacker community.
“With Bugcrowd’s CrowdConnect, our customers were able to immediately realize the full benefits of a powerful SaaS crowdsourcing platform,” said Mike Quirin, Founder and Partner at Alchemy Tech Group. “Alchemy prides itself on its ecosystem of strong relationships with disruptive technology vendors, and our goal is to support our customers with value-driven solutions as they embark on their transformative journey, something Bugcrowd’s CrowdConnect has supported from day one.”
“Bugcrowd allows us to provide our clients with a powerful network of hackers custom fit for their organizational needs, adding to our already robust IT and cybersecurity portfolio,” said Paul Zhdanovych, Managing Director at Softprom, a leading Value Added IT Distributor in the CIS and Eastern Europe markets trusted by more than 1,200 partners. “Organizations are head to head with the challenge of a major cybersecurity skills shortage in the industry. Our partners require specialized, high-value solutions and we are laser focused on addressing their needs. Bugcrowd has been a vital partner in this by providing an immensely talented and creative hacker community via crowdsourcing.”
According to the 2023 Inside the Mind of a Hacker report, 84% of hackers believe that less than half of companies understand their true risk of being breached.
And 96% of hackers agree that they help companies fill their cybersecurity skills gaps.
“Our guiding mission is to arm our growing partner network around the globe with a disruptive, innovative SaaS platform to proactively reduce the risk of being blindsided by today’s sophisticated threats,” said Paul Ciesielski, Chief Revenue Officer of Bugcrowd. “We’ve designed CrowdConnect to be valuable for our partners, allowing them to differentiate their products through access to our Bugcrowd Platform.
