Microsoft and Bug Bounty Switzerland collaborate to launch first Swiss Bug Bounty platform


    Bug Bounty Switzerland recently collaborated with Microsoft for Swiss Cybersecurity and inaugurated the first Swiss bug bounty platform. The new start-up was given the essential expertise and infrastructure by Microsoft. As part of the Microsoft Startups program, the firm can regulate its platform utilizing state-of-the-art technology in Microsoft’s Swiss data centers.

    Bug bounty programs conciliate between organizations and bug bounty hunters to discover bugs in IT systems. With the assistance provided by Microsoft, the startup is now in the progress of establishing the Swiss center for collaborating with bug hunters.

    “Microsoft’s support brings us a decisive step closer to our goal of making bug bounty programs easily accessible to all Swiss organizations and companies,” emphasizes Sandro Nafzger, CEO of Bug Bounty Switzerland.

    Swiss companies rely on the usage of hunters to protect their systems. But the platforms utilized for this objective, nonetheless, emerge from abroad. However, particularly in the public sector and in regulated enterprises, a data locale in Switzerland is continually a crucial requirement.

    “Microsoft’s drive for security, transparency, privacy, and trust aligns perfectly with our mission,” adds Florian Badertscher. “This is why we joined Microsoft for Startups.”

    To further enhance the process of using big hunters to secure the systems, Bug Bounty Switzerland has also started a planned confederation with the National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC).
