Researchers...external or internal?
Just to clarify, by researchers do they mean individuals within the HackerOne infrastructure or do they mean working with people externally searching for vulnerabilites within certain systems?

I feel that the second might provide a much larger research base and might be financially more plausible where a per vulnerability discovery payment could be established.

coup
Also, HackerOne getting Katie Moussouris from Microsoft, who spearheaded Microsoft's work with security researchers, its BlueHat Prize and bug bounty program, is a pretty big coup.

Re: Interesting development -- More to come?
Hard to say, but it is interesting that this market is really starting to heat up now. Operationalizing vulnerability disclosure just makes sense and the research realm is maturing such that it's naturally calling out for a more formal process for both the software vendor/web property and the researcher.

Interesting development -- More to come?
Bug bounty programs seems like a really positive development in cyber security. Kelly, do envision we will be hearing about more startups following the lead of HackerOne and Bugcrowd?
