Access management company –OneLogin, announced the results of their inaugural Bug Bounty Bash and first-time presence at Black Hat USA 2018, where the company donated $55,000 to nonprofits promoting diversity in cybersecurity. Momentum continues from the company’s security-first culture launch and recent security enhancements that drive MFA adoption with simple and secure features.
“If this week taught us one thing it’s that the industry is seeing a surge in the number and severity of vulnerabilities that are penetrating every industry that exists,” Justin Calmus, OneLogin Chief Security Officer said. “I feel tremendously fortunate to have the best team in the world ensure OneLogin’s 2,000 customers have the most powerful layers of protection working for them.”
For the first time, OneLogin hosted a Bug Bounty Bash with more than 30 of the world’s top hackers, including Frans Rosén, Security Advisor at Detectify and the co-founders of HackerOne, Michiel Prins and Jobert Abma. For each vulnerability discovered, participating hackers were rewarded with a cash bounty. Each hacker agreed to donate half of their winnings to nonprofits promoting diversity in cybersecurity.
Thanks to their generosity, OneLogin was able to write $27,500 checks to both the International Consortium of Minorities Cyber Security Professionals (ICMCP) and Queercon, organizations dedicated to making the infosec industry a more diverse and inclusive space.
“The contribution from OneLogin and this elite group of hackers will help further our mission of consistent representation of women and minorities in the cybersecurity industry through all of our programs this year,” said Aric Perminter, President of ICMCP.
