Managed Vulnerability Disclosure Program

Adopt a managed VDP – a critical component to strategic security testing

Activated by a vetted community of security researchers, the Synack Platform brings together 4 critical elements of testing

Penetration testing

Vulnerability management

Read comprehensive summaries of exploitable vulnerability findings, communicate with researchers and request patch verification, all through convenient workflows.

API security testing

According to Gartner, 90% of web applications now have a larger attack surface exposed via APIs than through the user interface. API protection is a critical piece of the attack surface that requires offensive penetration testing.

Managed VDP

Offensive teams know that receiving vulnerabilities from public researchers requires thoughtful analysis, implementation and management. Expert security skills are a critical part of running a successful VDP, and you need a trusted partner that can give you the best advice.


Why are VDPs important

VDPs provide enterprise security teams a safe and legal means to be notified of vulnerabilities on externally facing infrastructure by the public. A VDP allows security leaders to validate the exploitability and severity of vulnerabilities reported in good faith and reduces the escalation path and potential cost of incidents.


Why managed VDPs make a difference

  • Defined process for tracking vulnerabilities from identification to remediation
  • Less noise and more focused prioritization of critical vulnerabilities
  • Defined responsible disclosure program
  • Data points provided to support reporting to CISA or Boards as required
