Softprom Signs Partner Agreement with Bugcrowd
June 2023 by Marc Jacob
Value-added IT distributor Softprom and Bugcrowd have signed a partner agreement covering Europe and much of central Asia. Softprom will market and distribute Bugcrowd’s industry-leading Security Knowledge Platform™in the European Union, Switzerland, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Moldova, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.
The partner agreement is one of Bugcrowd’s channel first initiatives and expands Bugcrowd’s ability to serve new markets and territories.
According to recent Qualys research, it takes attackers an average of just under twenty days to weaponize a vulnerability. But it takes defenders an average of thirty days to patch, leaving eleven days of potential exploitation. With increasingly global and distributed workforces, organizations are realizing the need for continuous, real-time security solutions that establish a proactive, rather than reactive, security posture towards these aggressive and ever-evolving threats.
Under the terms of the agreement, Softprom will market and distribute Bugcrowd’s multi-solution portfolio to its rich network of customers to address these increasing threats around the globe. Trusted by over 1,200 partners, Softprom increases customer effectiveness by providing high-quality IT solutions and services across thirty countries.
The Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™ is the only multi-solution security platform that powers pen testing as a service, bug bounty, vulnerability disclosure programs (VDPs), and attack surface management to bring the right human creativity to the right problem at the right time to disrupt threat actors at their own game.
Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS)
• Bugcrowd PTaaS enables customers to launch a human-driven, high-impact pen test with a team matched to their precise needs with just a few clicks, cutting configuration time from days to hours.
• Built on the Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™, Bugcrowd’s bug bounty proposition comprises ML-driven crowd matching (CrowdMatchTM); engineered triage; and data-driven insights derived from a decade of experience across 1000s of customer experiences.
Vulnerability Disclosure Program (VDP)
• Bugcrowd vulnerability disclosure program (VDP) sets the rules of engagement for the public to submit vulnerability reports about public-facing assets and then coordinates how they’re handled internally. Also built on the Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™, Bugcrowd’s managed VDPs provide submission channels, triage, integration, and reporting, with data from thousands of past customer experiences informing everything that happens.
Attack Surface Management
• Bugcrowd’s ASM solution provides technology and data that enables customer organizations to uncover hidden or forgotten assets (Asset Inventory), and then assign and prioritize risk to them (Asset Risk). The most thorough assessment of attack surface risks available, Bugcrowd ASM goes far beyond what other solutions do to help understand, and assign risk to all digital assets.
