Centrify Fortifies Platform Security with Bugcrowd Bug Bounty Program

Centrify to award up to $3,000 per vulnerability to ensure the security of the Centrify Identity Services platform.

SAN FRANCISCO – Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity, today launched a public bug bounty program with Bugcrowd, the leader in crowdsourced security testing. Building on the success of its private, on-demand program, the public program will leverage more than 50,000 security researchers on the Bugcrowd platform to reinforce the security of the Centrify Identity Services platform. Centrify Identity Services secures each user’s access to apps, endpoints and infrastructure through single sign-on, multifactor authentication and privileged identity management.  

Centrify will reward security researchers between $100 - $3,000 USD per bug identified—depending on impact and severity of vulnerabilities identified in our Application Services, Infrastructure Services and corporate website.

"As a leader in identity services, it is incumbent upon us to fully vet the security on our platform to ensure that each user’s access to apps and infrastructure is secure and that we continue to deliver the best solutions," explains Raun Nohavitza, senior director of IT at Centrify. "Bugcrowd’s platform, organization, experience with triage and relationship with the security community make their bounty program very attractive. With Bugcrowd we’re not only doing the right thing for our security offerings in the best way possible, but we’re also getting consistent administration and management for our ongoing program."

At Bugcrowd security expertise is built into the design, support and management of every program. Bugcrowd’s easy-to-use platform connects organizations with a curated crowd of tens of thousands of researchers for quicker identification of vulnerabilities, while its experienced team manages programs every step of the way to ensure organizations see results.

"The explosion of online business has increased the opportunities for adversaries, which makes a strong security stance more important than ever," said Casey Ellis, CEO and founder of Bugcrowd. "Centrify is clearly demonstrating their commitment to keeping their customers secure by proactively engaging the help of the white-hat hacker community through the Bugcrowd platform. Bug bounty programs have emerged as the most effective and efficient way to secure the delivery of products and services, and we are proud to manage their bug bounty program."
