Yogosha was born out of a fundamental belief that their approach and understanding of cybersecurity was in need of a big shift. Pushing back against the stereotype of shady, dangerous hackers, Yogosha have built a community of highly trained ethical hunters who are passionate about helping companies minimize risk and ensure consumer safety.
Yogosha is a crowdsourced cybersecurity platform enabling a win-win collaboration with the most talented hackers to detect and fix vulnerabilities on your most critical systems. Choose your strategy amongst Bug Bounty, crowdsourced Pentest or CVD, and interact with your selected hackers. And with only 15% of hackers passing Yogosha’s technical and educational tests, you know your security is in the best hands.
Yogosha’s SaaS platform is simple to use and allows you to quickly define your security challenges, analyse vulnerability reports, campaign performance, and facilitate remediation. Due to the highly diverse skills within Yogosha’s hacker community, you will have access to the one with best expertise on the system or application you want to secure, meaning you’ll be able to build the right team for your situation.
The concept of Bug Bounty was born at Netscape, one of the first start-ups of the 90s. Over the past two decades, it has progressively conquered Silicon Valley before moving onto American companies with global networks finally reaching Europe.
The idea is very simple and has proven to be extremely efficient; rather than having to pay for a penetration test, in which a cyber-security expert attempts to identify and exploit vulnerabilities within a cyber-space over a specific time frame before reporting his findings, you can work with an organisation of “researchers” and pay for their findings.
A Bug Bounty program leads to a considerable increase in the potential number of researchers compared to the more traditional approach of pentesting, therefore increasing the odds of finding vulnerabilities in the security system.
Having such a broad community of bug hunters and experts in cyber-security continuously auditing your technology can be compared to having a permanent IT Security audit. This community can be described as a hotbed of creativity, as some security researchers have extensive skills and areas of expertise whereas others have become particularly efficient in specific fields. Therefore, when assembled, their collective creativity contributes to the discovery of extremely varied vulnerabilities during a Bug Bounty program.
