SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 9, 2016) - The pioneer in crowdsourced security testing, Bugcrowd, today announced the launch of a public bug bounty program for InVision, the world's leading product design platform with over 2M users. The program will leverage Bugcrowd's community of skilled cybersecurity researchers who are rewarded up to $1,500 USD per bug identified -- depending on impact and severity -- allowing InVision to address platform vulnerabilities or security flaws before they can be exploited.
"We prioritize our customers, our data and our sites at InVision, and have a larger security team than most companies our size," said Johnathan Hunt, vice president of information security for InVision. "Yet even with our strong internal resources, we know that today's threat environment necessitates being ahead of the curve. With Bugcrowd's broad and diverse crowd of researchers, we benefit by leveraging a huge 'virtual team' that's always bringing fresh perspectives, innovative expertise and a different mindset to shore up our overall security."
InVision has developed a best-in-class security strategy that now includes the expertise and diverse skills of researchers from around the world. Bugcrowd combines the power of this curated crowd with a platform that easily connects researchers to organizations, saving time and resources.
"Crowdsourcing vulnerability discovery delivers a radical security advantage for any organization," said Casey Ellis, CEO of Bugcrowd. "For innovators like InVision, harnessing the power of the hacker community helps them find bugs before the bad guys do, and frees up internal resources allowing them to build an even better, more secure product for their customers."
Always-on SaaS companies like InVision have pioneered the adoption of crowdsourced cybersecurity programs. These programs are now being adopted across industries, shown by the number of programs launched and in the variety of use organizations represented. Bugcrowd is working with brands including Tesla, FitBit, Mastercard, Pinterest, Western Union and Fiat-Chrysler, the first full-line automaker to offer "bug bounty" financial rewards for discovery of potential vehicle cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
