Building knowledge from the world's best ethical hackers into Detectify services

Benefit from always updated Detectify products that are fuelled directly by Crowdsource, our community of hand-picked ethical hackers

Democratizing security knowledge

Web vulnerabilities submitted by Crowdsource ethical hackers are automated into Detectify products to help customers become and remain secure. Simply put, we take the knowledge of experts and put it into the hands of those that need it.

A focus on a large scale so that everyone benefits

Crowdsource supports all Detectify customers, regardless of their size or turnover. Because our community finds vulnerabilities across commonly used technologies, all Detectify customers benefit.

Giving customers more value

The latest security knowledge is automated to detect commonly exploited vulnerabilities and allow specialists to focus on more challenging security bugs.

How Crowdsource works

1 list bullet

Our ethical hackers find vulnerabilities widely used in systems such as a CMS, framework, or library. They then submit it with a proof of concept to Crowdsource.

2 list bullet

Proof of concepts are reviewed internally and, once accepted, are built into the scanner so that all customers get access.

3 list bullet

Customers scan their assets for vulnerabilities, and the ethical hacker is rewarded for each 'hit'. By reporting the vulnerability once, they help secure thousands of web apps and assets with automation.

Ethical hackers are on your side

The group of ethical hackers that founded Detectify realized that the power of the crowd would be the best way to fix a broken Internet. This set the foundation for Crowdsource, a dedicated group of ethical hackers who genuinely are in it to make the Internet safer for both companies and end users.
