While the idea of Bug Bounty programs is pretty similar to traditional penetration, however, the approach of it is the polar opposite. If you were to compare it to writing, then think of bug bounty as a competition where a lot of writers come together to compete against each other and then the writers with the best essays win the price.

Let’s find out what all advantages bug bounty programs have.

1.While the pen tests employ a very limited number of testers, in bug bounty programs, lots of people can take part with extremely diverse skill sets.
 

2.Since there are so many testers coming from a lot of different fields, the testing scenarios, and vulnerability checks tends to be very diverse and sophisticated as well.
 

3.Bug bounty hunters get paid in a result-oriented model. This is the reason why the quality of the bugs that the hunters find are usually of a much higher quality, i.e., the kind of bugs that most smart hackers will exploit.

4.Since the whole idea of a bounty program is a competition, the atmosphere is far more competitive, which incentivizes the hunters to give their all.
