Global technology company's invite-only program is one of the first in legal tech.
Relativity today announced an invite-only bug bounty program for its Relativity software as part of Relativity Trust, the company's relentless pursuit of securing its code and platform. Relativity Chief Security Officer Amanda Fennell announced the news on-stage during the opening keynote of the 10th annual Relativity Fest.
Launching this month, the Relativity bug bounty program, which will be overseen by Relativity's Calder7 security team, will award invited researchers up to $3,000 for finding critical security flaws in its software. Researchers will be given complete administrative access to their own workspace within the current 10.2 version of RelativityOne and about 700 documents of test data to evaluate.
As regulatory bodies across the globe demand increasing compliance requirements, bug bounties continue to be an industry best practice for companies looking to further mature their security posture and software development lifecycle. The information gathered from the new program will provide insight into how real-world hackers might attack the Relativity platform, visibility into these hacking communities, and details on how Relativity can better target its proactive monitoring capabilities.
"The introduction of this bug bounty program is a big step for our product and reflects our ongoing passion to providing our customers with an ironclad security posture," said Chief Security Officer, Amanda Fennell. "We look forward to using the results of this program to further fortify our security and preventative defenses."
The launch of the bug bounty program comes at a time of exciting growth for Relativity's Calder7 security team, which has quadrupled in size since 2018 and now has a presence in both of Relativity's Chicago and Krakow offices.
