About HackerOne

Founded in 2012 in the United States, HackerOne is a leading cybersecurity company with partnerships across various industries, including 25% of the Fortune 100. As pioneers in "attack resilience", they were one of the first companies to emphasize vulnerability identification beyond known errors.

Besides their impressive social proof with positive testimonials, case studies, and user reviews, HackerOne also fosters a vibrant community, including regular live events, strengthening connections within the cybersecurity landscape.

Things small and medium-sized businesses need to consider about HackerOne

Quality assurance

HackerOne has, by far, the highest number of registered bounty hunters, which presents challenges in screening efficiency. Maintaining high standards in a massive pool is difficult, potentially impacting the quality of assigned researchers.

Cost and consistency

Not all tests receive the same attention, therefore the quality of service may vary. HackerOne’s focus on high-paying clients translates to higher overall costs for smaller businesses and potentially less attention given to their specific needs.
