Testlio, a leader in crowdsourced software quality testing, and Bugcrowd, a leader in crowdsourced cybersecurity, today announced they are partnering to offer companies comprehensive quality and security testing services that capitalize on the unique efficiency benefits of crowdsourced testing. The alliance builds upon existing market momentum for crowdsourced testing as a solution to address both a skills gap and fulfill challenging product verification scenarios that require a diversity of locations, devices, users, and transaction types.
The current economic climate dictates that DevSecOps teams must find more cost-efficient ways to continuously deliver high-quality and secure digital customer experiences. Crowdsourced testing offers scale efficiencies by extending internal expertise and capacity with on-demand access to a global network of skilled quality and security experts. Bugcrowd and Testlio make it easy to reap these benefits with a platform-powered approach that manages the scale up and down of capacity to meet the evolving cybersecurity and quality assurance talent and coverage needs of the business.
“Economic headwinds require companies to rethink business as usual operating models. CTOs, CISOs, and product leaders must enact more capital efficient systems to fulfill digital forward strategies,” said Emeka Obianwu, Vice President, Alliances & Acquisitions for Testlio. “The Bugcrowd and Testlio alliance addresses a core requirement for digital programs which is to secure and quality assure software applications. It also unlocks a very time relevant benefit by employing an operating model for testing that allows product teams to do more with less.”
The fast-paced nature of modern software delivery requires historically siloed development, quality and operations teams to work together to quickly roll out software that works and protects as intended. Modern DevSecOps aims to remove these silos by invoking quality assurance and security earlier in the process. Bugcrowd and Testlio customers can also benefit from continuous, “shift left” crowdsourced testing which offers broader test coverage earlier in the software delivery process so product issues are identified and resolved faster.
“Testlio and Bugcrowd each have a strong track record of helping enterprises successfully integrate crowdsourced testing into their quality assurance and security strategies respectively,” said Jason Cowie, Vice President,Global of Alliances for Bugcrowd. “This alliance is about the next chapter of the value creation opportunity, offering a consistent approach across the security and quality domains so enterprises can take advantage of the economics and effectiveness of crowdsourced testing in more areas across the software development and operations lifecycle. ”
The platform covers e entire enterprise technology space- including emerging technologies like RPA, AI, cloud, automation, and the entire gamut of digital transformation tools, strategies and management decisions.
