Infinigate is now distributing Bugcrowd, the cyber security platform. The agreement is initially effective in the UK and Ireland, with the roll-out to be extended to Infinigate partners throughout EMEA.
Jason Cowie, VP of global channel sales and strategic alliances at Bugcrowd, said: “This agreement is another important step for us as we continue our journey towards becoming a ‘channel first’ business globally. Each agreement speeds the rate at which we can make our platform-based services available to anyone, anywhere.”
He added: “As organisations grapple with the impact of the ever-growing cyber security skills shortage, our collaboration with Infinigate will support their partners and help their customers extend their in-house cyber security expertise, complementing their existing resources.”
Lewis Dick, alliances director at Infinigate, said: “Bugcrowd provides access to expert, CREST-accredited penetration testing, fundamental in testing your defences against potential cyber attacks. These services are in high demand as the risk profile increases due to the widening of the attack surface, while the global cyber skills shortage and cost considerations limit businesses’ ability to hire in-house experts.
“Through Bugcrowd, our partners can provide their customers with access to highly-skilled hackers who can ensure rigorous testing, on-demand and on rotation. Customers can also select specific hackers to suit the business segment and profile.
“The growth potential for the channel is exciting and PTaaS is at the perfect stage of the hype cycle, tipped for exponential growth,” he added.
