According to the 2021 Hacker Report by HackerOne, there has been a 63% increase in the number of hackers submitting vulnerabilities over the last 12 months. In fact, 34% noted that they have seen more bugs due to pandemic-led digital transformation. Evidently, the attack surface has evolved and increased over the last 12 months in response to organizational change. But what kinds of solutions are available to help face this new wave of threat, and how can leaders target and reduce these risks internally?

Hackers help security teams scale testing across attack surfaces. They provide valuable insight, and specifically, the perspective of an outsider to make sure that your systems and products are secure and well designed. In the last year, it took an average of 16 days for a hacker to report their first bug from joining the platform.

Ultimately, hackers provide a human perspective – and the ability to protect your organization from future attacks before they even become a problem.
