HackerOne's Mårten Mickos


All said and done, HackerOne is not for everyone. It's intended for organizations whose software can be accessed from the outside. According to Mickos, HackerOne works the best for any organization that is connected to the Internet.

"It should have a process for receiving vulnerability reports from third parties and resolving known vulnerabilities. Some of HackerOne's most successful programs vary greatly by industry, attack surface, and budget. They are run by teams that prioritize relationships with the hacker community and are dedicated to resolving vulnerabilities as quickly and accurately as possible," said Mickos.

Some of HackerOne's major customers include the DoD, General Motors, Google, Twitter, GitHub, Nintendo, Lufthansa, Panasonic Avionics, Qualcomm, Starbucks, Dropbox, Intel, and the CERT Coordination Center, among others.
