Bugcrowd Expands Pen Testing Solutions with New Platform Services

SAN FRANCISCO, June 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bugcrowd, the leader in crowdsourced security, today announced a significant expansion of its Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) product line to include new offerings—Basic Pen Test and Standard Pen Test—purpose built for today’s digital business where continuous testing must keep pace with continuous and agile development. These strategic additions expand the use cases covered by Bugcrowd’s PTaaS suite to cover the gamut of 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 today offer cumbersome, ad hoc consulting offerings that do not identify all risks and are hard to execute at scale in a consistent and configurable way for buyers as well as pentesters themselves. PTaaS solutions have emerged to address these issues, but most don’t go far enough—only 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 now 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

“We have a diverse set of use cases for pen testing, ranging from basic vulnerability discovery for very simple web apps to intensive and continuous risk reduction for business-critical ones,” said Jason Frost, Manager, Security Assessment, Paychex. “These new additions to the Bugcrowd PTaaS product line fulfill all our needs in one platform.”

The Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™ enables pen tests to run alongside Bugcrowd’s managed bug bounty, vulnerability disclosure programs, and other solutions as a fully integrated and orchestrated experience…
