Middle East’s first enterprise B2B marketplace, UAE-based AmiViz has introduced  Europe’s leading Bug Bounty platform YesWeHack Vulnerability Disclosure Policy (VDP) platform to its marketplace in an attempt to protect its customer’s and hunters’ interests.

YesWeHack complies with the strictest European standards and regulations to protect its customer’s and hunters’ interests. It supports companies through every step of setting up a Vulnerability Disclosure Policy (VDP).

AmiViz channel partners can avail of the service through the AmiViz web portal or the mobile app. YesWeHack offers organizations a unique approach to cyber defense. Its Bug Bounty platform provides customers with a virtual pool of more than 35,000 ethical hackers across 170 countries. This community of experts can be mobilized to search vulnerabilities in websites, mobile apps, and IT infrastructure, and report their findings through a secure workflow.

Organizations can either privately select the ethical hackers with the skills that best fit their use case, or publicly submit their scopes to the entire YesWeHack community. YesWeHack also offers a tried-and-tested VDP (Vulnerability Disclosure Policy) fully managed service, which is a safe and clear framework for anyone to report vulnerabilities. VDP is part of ISO29147 and ISO30111 and is encouraged as a best practice by international bodies such as NIST, ENISA, CISA, and OECD.

“We are extremely happy to partner with AmiViz as their B2B marketplace offers us the opportunity to take our Bug Bounty and VDP platform to a wider audience at a much faster pace, which will allow partners to engage with us and explore new business opportunities.”

Highlighting the fast-expanding bug bounty market worldwide, Mr. Achkar further added that “Bug Bounty is a common practice in the USA, but now the same model is gaining currency across the globe. And according to Gartner, 50 percent of organizations will have a Bug Bounty program in place by 2022.”
