Strategic Partnership Provides Customers with Extended Security and Engineering Resources to Identify and Remediate Risk throughout the SDLC
VVDN Technologies, a leading product engineering, cloud and manufacturing company, and Bugcrowd, the #1 crowdsourced security company, announced a strategic partnership to extend security services for their customers. With this partnership, VVDN will offer services to its customers based on Bugcrowd’s award-winning Crowdcontrol™ platform and programs, and also provide complementary engineering services to Bugcrowd customers to help remediate vulnerabilities found by the Crowd.
VVDN is a premier original design manufacturer (ODM) for cloud-managed IoT solutions with more than 2,000 engineers across nine design centers and four manufacturing plants in India, as well as a global presence across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia. Bugcrowd combines the largest, experienced triage team with the most trusted hackers around the world to support enterprise organizations in managing their Bug Bounty, Vulnerability Disclosure, and Next Gen Pen Test programs.
Through the partnership, VVDN customers will gain access to Bugcrowd’s crowdsourced security solutions and platform. Bugcrowd security researchers will be provided more program opportunities, including assisting VVDN customers who opt in with code assessment projects. Additionally, new joint remediation services will allow customers access to VVDN engineers with expertise in IoT, mobile, and cloud, addressing a key hurdle faced by customers when actively moving through the SDLC — having the engineering resources to fix found bugs.
“We are thrilled by the strategic fit between Bugcrowd and VVDN,” said Vivek Bansal, co-founder and President, Engineering of VVDN. “By combining the power of the Bugcrowd and our expert engineers, we’ll be able to deliver against our customers’ fast changing security and development requirements.”
“VVDN’s confidence in Bugcrowd’s platform and Crowd enables VVDN’s industry-leading customers to enhance their security posture with our crowdsourced security offerings,” said Ashish Gupta, CEO of Bugcrowd. “Similarly, Bugcrowd customers can now augment their engineering capacity with VVDN’s trained engineering resources to help fix vulnerabilities found by our Crowd, and quickly deliver fixes to known security issues.”
VVDN and Bugcrowd have already demonstrated the power of the partnership with several customers, and will continue to jointly leverage the combined offering to help more leading companies secure their digital assets.
