cazHack aims to be the reference cybersecurity partner for organizations looking for the most thorough and real reviews of their assets.
We set up cybersecurity challenges, competitions, in which hackers compete to hack into your company’s assets or to discover security flaws in your product. Each cazHacker is rewarded for its findings based on its impact, which ensures 100% of the effort given in order to be able to get the best of the rewards and therefore, the most impactful and relevant findings.
What problems are you trying to solve?
Cybersecurity is a very competitive sector in which being able to access expert resources is only available to top end companies. We leverage the availability and expertise of our network of cazHackers to ensure companies have access to the resources they need, while the competition structure ensures the client company only pays for the relevant issues identified.
We basically get the right brains on your problem, and motivate them to provide the best solution.
The companies trying to find out which are their security issues affecting their assets usually don’t get the adequate level of quality in their findings (lack of steps to reproduce the issue, missing information or meaningful impact). If you are lucky to get a skilled and motivated “hacker” to test your assets, you may get good results. But most likely there will be something left untested or undiscovered. That is what we are improving.
We have the best freelance professional hackers competing between themselves, squeezing their brains to find the best and the biggest number of vulnerabilities possible.
How are you solving that problem?
cazHack is completely delocalized, as we value the hackers based on their skills and not based on where they are. We have specialized hackers working on what they are best doing, best web hackers doing web penetration tests, the best API hackers doing API testing, etc.
Our hackers have a full time work or work as freelancers with other companies. That is precisely our strength. All our cazHackers have other strong work experiences on which to lever and can bring their knowledge in a wide variety of projects and clients.
How has the pandemic impacted your company?
Our format is really compatible with the unfortunate change that we’ve had to face since this started. We are all delocalized and used to working remotely. It has not been as impactful as it has been for other companies.
Where do you see your company going in 5 years?
Our most ambitious plan is to be the reference for every company that is legitimately interested in finding the security issues that their assets may have.
We want to be the “go to” reference for startups with a new product and are eager to know if someone could exploit something in their software to extract information about their clients or misuse their product in any way. We aim to be the reference for any company that wants to find out if some skilled hackers could find any way to get into their infrastructure or leak information about their clients or employees.
What is the next big challenge in information security?
Scaling security as fast as technology is going to be one of the upcoming challenges. That’s also another reason why we built cazHack to be flexible and scalable. Professional services should be as able to scale and adapt as well as technology does.
How do people get involved/buy into your vision?
We want to give a shout out to every new and old company concerned about the status of their infrastructure or their product.
From big companies acquiring others that want to ensure their acquisitions do not have any security gap before giving them access to the existing internal network, to startups built in a cloud native infrastructure, or with a completely innovative product or software solution connected to the Internet and want to double check their assets will protect their users’ and their data.
We build competitions between hackers so you get the best out of the best.
