Penetration testing done right

Penetration Testing as a Service from Bugcrowd helps you leave old limits behind to meet compliance goals and reduce risk with high-velocity, high-impact testing.


Pen testing that actually reduces risk

Status-quo penetration testing (“pen test”) options are cumbersome consulting projects that take weeks or months to complete, and do little to reduce risk. Instead, the Bugcrowd Platform‘s modern Pen Testing as a Service (PTaaS) suite delivers high-velocity, high-impact results for both compliance and risk reduction at the speed of digital business. Launch pen tests against any target in days with a pentester team designed for your needs, see prioritized findings in real time/flow them directly into DevSec processes, and easily repeat tests at scale if needed.

Strengthen security posture by combining your pen tests with Bug Bounty as part of a layered strategy for maximum risk reduction.


More speed & scale

Launch in days with prioritized vulns flowing directly into DevSec processes for fast remediation. Easily repeat tests at scale and organize and manage them all through the Bugcrowd Platform.


More impact

Meet compliance goals (PCI, NIST, ISO 27001) and surpass them. Our platform activates trusted, expert pentesters for your needs from a crowd of thousands to find more critical vulns.


More agility

Choose from different testing intensities to fit your needs and assets. For external web apps and networks, buy and configure pen tests online or via AWS Marketplace, cutting setup time dramatically.


More transparency

View timelines, prioritized findings, analytics, and pentester progress through the methodology checklist 24/7 in the Bugcrowd Platform’s rich Penetration Test Dashboard.

See results as they happen

Never be in the dark about your pen test results again. View prioritized findings, action items, analytics, and pentester progress 24/7 in a rich dashboard, and communicate with pentesters directly when needed. When ready, your final report (see sample for Standard pen test – Web App) is available for download from the same dashboard. 

Curated Pentester Teams

The testers you deserve

Other pen test providers take a cookie-cutter approach to pen testing regardless of your specific assets, environment, or needs–virtually guaranteeing low-impact results. Instead, our platform’s CrowdMatchTM AI technology curates qualified, engaged teams for your precise requirements (and rotates testers whenever needed), bringing high-quality results that have earned us CREST accreditation for pen testing.

Gamified Testing

Reduce risk faster

Sometimes, the “pay for effort” approach won’t deliver the results you want, particularly when risk reduction is the main goal. So, in addition to flat-rate pen test solutions, we offer a “pay for impact” incentivized testing model in which elite pentesters are rewarded based on results, with up to hundreds of eyes on your targets. For many customers, this approach provides maximum risk reduction.

Analytics and Reports

Insights for continuous improvement

The Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™ includes a rich security knowledge graph containing millions of data points about vulnerabilities, assets, environments, and skill sets developed over a decade of building customer solutions. This data enables dynamic, contextual workflows, AI-powered tools like CrowdMatch™, and ​​rich analytics, reports, and recommendations to help you continuously monitor KPIs and improve your security posture.
