YesWeHack – Europe #1 bug bounty platform – has announced that it is opening an office in Singapore. The new office is part of YesWeHack’s fast-growth strategy for its international activities following a €4 million fundraising at the start of the year.
YesWeHack is consolidating its global positioning in a sector that will transform the cybersecurity industry over the next five years.
Kevin Gallerin has been appointed Managing Director APAC to develop YesWeHack’s strategy in Asia. Having spent more than ten years in the region, he knows the Asian cybersecurity market inside out, having notably participated in the launch of CERT-LEXSI in Singapore.
Aside from his recognized cyber expertise and own entrepreneurial experience, he also brings along his ethical hacker community from which all the co-founders of YesWeHack hail.
A strategic presence in the Asian market
The Singapore government has made cybersecurity one of the priorities of its defence strategy. It launched its first bug bounty programs in 2018, with the aim of “building a smart, safe and resilient nation”. This initiative has helped “educate” the regional market on bug bounty and its value.
Asian firms are quite advanced in their digital transformation and are open to disruptive approaches that enable them to strengthen security while also accelerating this transformation. YesWeHack has already launched programs with major organisations in the region. These initial successes speak for the relevance of our positioning and the quality of our services, and show that YesWeHack is now a key player in the regionKevin Gallerin
Europe: YesWeHack’s USP in Asia
YesWeHack’s differentiating advantage include its reputation and European values: major Asian organisations are highly sensitive to ensuring that the sovereignty of their operations and their data confidentiality are respected – guarantees that North American platforms cannot provide.
With a global community of ethical hackers and this new step in its international development, YesWeHack is consolidating its position as the ONLY alternative platform to the major US market players.
YesWehack is Europe’s leading bug bounty platform, connecting organisations of all sizes and from all sectors with a community of more than 8,000+ ethical hackers based in 120 countries. Guillaume Vassault-Houlière, Chairman and founder: “YesWeHack leverages the power of the crowd to plug the widening gap in cybersecurity skills – one of the biggest challenges of this decade”.
Founded in 2013, YesWeHack has now offices in France (Paris, Rennes and Rouen), Switzerland (Lausanne) and Singapore.
