Case Study - How BitNinja Supports Dreamscape Networks’ Mission

We have bigger dreams about a better future, where every server owner can forget all those headaches what we...

We put a lot of time and effort into shaping the upgraded, mature WAF module into an asset that is effective and customizable for our users. And why did we...

The same fear is present on the other side. As a software or IT company, we were worried about the agreement of the external penetration tester because we were afraid that the related information would come to a bad man. Fortunately, nowadays bug bounty platforms solve these problems. One of the b...
