Australia’s leading real time online debit payment method further strengthens its security having completed its first crowd sourced testing.
POLi Payments, the Australian owned e-commerce company, has just completed its first crowd sourced security test. Bugcrowd managed the process whereby 335 ‘hackers’ in 23 countries tried to find vulnerabilities in the POLi Payments system.
POLi is pleased to announce that no significant vulnerabilities were found.
"We were extremely pleased with the testing organised by bugcrowd. Without bugcrowd there is no way we or 'traditional' security consultancies could have arranged 335 hackers to take part in such an organised process. Our significant investment in security has been vindicated by the positive results achieved and we look forward to engaging Bugcrowd in the future." said Jeff McAlister, CEO of POLi Payments.

Bugcrowd is crowdsourced security for web and mobile applications. We run managed bug bounties as a service.
All web and mobile apps have security flaws. Finding them before the bad guys do is hard. The bad guys have the economic advantage and way outnumber the good guys. Crowdsourced “bug bounties” bring balance to the equation... but in-house bug bounty programs are hard to set up and difficult to run. Enter Bugcrowd.
Our curated crowd of 1,500 security researchers compete for cash and kudos to be the first to report security flaws in our clients’ applications. Facebook, Google and Paypal have used this approach successfully for years, now Bugcrowd makes it available to companies of all sizes.
