“The Bug Bounty initiative allows us to utilize all the security talent available and empowers everyone in the community to help us build a safer online world,” said Marijus Briedis, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Nord Security.

VPN service provider NordVPN released its bug bounty program back in December 2019. As the product family is expanding, the program has now been extended to password management solution NordPass, and NordLocker – an encryption-powered data security solution.

“Security is our number one priority in all of our products. Therefore, we want to engage as many expert penetration testers as we can,” said Marijus Briedis, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Nord Security. “The Bug Bounty initiative allows us to utilize all the security talent available and empowers everyone in the community to help us build a safer online world.”

HackerOne Platform

The Bug Bounty program is implemented via the HackerOne platform, which connects businesses with penetration testers and security researchers.

“Nord Security uses a managed service from HackerOne,” added Marijus Briedis. “It helps us progress in better program design and bug management and provides us with additional support running our program from end to end.”
