Bugcrowd alternative for small and medium-sized companies

Quality of experts

Bugcrowd’s Triage team faced challenges with rapid growth, struggling to find the right experts, resulting in the churn of companies and the departure of ethical hackers due to slow triage processes and occasional low quality. They have since partially addressed the issue and achieved success by winning programs like the OpenAI bug bounty.

Prioritizing high-paying clients

Due to the prioritization of high-paying clients, small and medium-sized businesses might not receive the same level of service or attention. This potential discrepancy in service levels between larger and smaller clients could be a consideration for small and medium-sized businesses.
