Case Study: Barracuda's Fully Managed Bug Bounty Program

Posted by Payton O'Neal on Mar 23, 2017 9:00:00 AM

In 2010, Barracuda Networks was one of the first organizations to launch a formal bug bounty program. Since then, Barracuda has paved the way for other organizations to launch programs in order to collaborate with the independent research community and improve their overall product security programs.

In our recently released case study, we outline the iterations and learnings of their bounty program through a managed Bugcrowd bounty program and more. 

Read the Case Study

In the case study, you'll learn...

  • What value Barracuda saw in transitioning to a fully managed bounty program with Bugcrowd in 2014
  • How Bugcrowd's platform Crowdcontrol has helped them handle vulnerability submissions and allocate their internal resources more efficiently
  • What kind of traction they've seen over the past several years through their bounty program and what's next

It has been such a learning experience working with the Barracuda team and a joy to see their program evolve over the years.
