November 23, 2023 – London, UK – Infinigate, the EMEA VAD specialising in cybersecurity, secure networks and secure cloud, has signed an agreement with Bugcrowd, the only multi-solution crowdsourced cybersecurity platform, to distribute Bugcrowd’s industry-leading solutions and services. The agreement is initially effective in the UK and Ireland, with roll-out to be extended subsequently to Infinigate partners throughout EMEA.
Jason Cowie, VP Global Channel Sales and Strategic Alliances, Bugcrowd, said: “This agreement is another important step for Bugcrowd as we continue our journey towards becoming a ‘channel first’ business globally. Each agreement speeds the rate at which we can make our platform-based services available to anyone, anywhere.
“As organisations grapple with the impact of the ever-growing cybersecurity skills shortage, our collaboration with Infinigate will support their partners and help their customers extend their in-house cybersecurity expertise, complementing their existing resources,” he continued. “Customers using Bugcrowd’s platform and services retain the ability to access and unleash vital human ingenuity and skill-sets, helping them to root out vulnerabilities and prevent attacks occurring in the first place. Every new organisation using our platform and services represents one less easy target for threat actors.”
Lewis Dick, Alliances Director at Infinigate, said: “Adding to Infinigate’s robust and comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio, Bugcrowd provides access to expert, CREST-Accredited Penetration Testing, fundamental in testing your defences against potential cyber-attacks. These services are in high demand as the risk profile increases due to the widening of the attack surface, while the global cyber skills shortage and cost considerations limit businesses’ ability to hire in-house experts. Through Bugcrowd, our partners can provide their customers with access to highly-skilled hackers who can ensure rigorous testing, on demand and on rotation. Customers can also select specific hackers to suit the business segment and profile.
“The growth potential for the channel is exciting and PTaaS is at the perfect stage of the Hype Cycle, tipped for exponential growth,” he added.
Infinigate is a leading Value Added Distributor (VAD) covering over 100 countries across EMEA. Over half of its 1250+ staff are technical experts, offering partners the specialist consultancy to deliver high-value solutions.
The Bugcrowd Security Knowledge Platform™c is the only multi-solution security platform that powers pen testing as a service, bug bounty, vulnerability disclosure programs (VDPs), and attack surface management. Through its data and AI-driven CrowdMatch™ technology, Bugcrowd brings the right human creativity to the right problem at the right time to disrupt threat actors at their own game.
Research published by ISC2 in October 2023 suggests that, while the global cybersecurity workforce now comprises 5.5 million people, an additional 4 million professionals – the size of the cybersecurity workforce gap – are needed worldwide to adequately safeguard digital assets worldwide. Such figures illustrate the value of leveraging the immensely talented and creative hacker community via crowdsourcing. The scale of the cybersecurity workforce gap means crowdsourcing is the fastest way to access the full spectrum of cybersecurity skills needed to proactively stay secure.
