Likelihood to Recommend

Bugcrowd

Bug Crowd is well suited if you do not have the resources to hire someone to test a site, do not have a team of recruiters that can find qualified testers and maybe do not have the budget to hire said employees. They are also good if you are only running short tests on a site and need quick feedback. Since you can set the bounty levels, you can decide what you want to pay

Alternatives Considered

Bugcrowd

Budget was ultimately the reason we went with Bugcrowd initially. Bugcrowd allowed for us to come up with our own bounty scale to fit out budget. Most other companies had a fixed scale, or the scale was not as flexible as we wanted it. Traditional penetration testing companies were very expensive.
