London, UK (PRWEB) June 08, 2016
ZENEDGE, a leading provider of cloud-based, artificial intelligence (AI) driven Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDoS cybersecurity solutions, announced today the next challenge for hackers; a bug bounty program to hack ZENEDGE AI WAF, the Company’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven Web Application Firewall (WAF.)
A bug bounty program is offered by software and technology companies whereby individuals can receive recognition and compensation for reporting exploits, bugs, and vulnerabilities. Bug bounty programs allow software companies to discover and resolve bugs before the general public is aware of them, preventing incidents of widespread abuse. Bug bounty programs are regularly implemented by some of the largest technology companies in the world including Facebook, Google, Reddit, Yahoo! and Square.
The ZENEDGE bug bounty program will present participants with the challenge to penetrate and hack a predetermined vulnerable web application, protected by ZENEDGE’s patent-pending ZENEDGE AI WAF. Several prizes for different levels of successful penetration will be awarded, with the top prize set at US$15,000.
“ZENEDGE prides itself on being at the forefront of web application security,” said Leon Kuperman, Chief Technology Officer of ZENEDGE. “The most effective way to put our Machine Learning Web Application Firewall to the test is by opening the doors to the best cybersecurity minds in the world. We look forward to further hardening our AI WAF based on feedback we will receive from our bug bounty participants.”
The ZENEDGE bug bounty program is scheduled to commence on July 1, 2016. For more information, please visit here.
