Bugcrowd vs HackerOne: What are the differences?
Developers describe Bugcrowd as "Managed bug bounty programs, better security testing". Our Crowdcontrol platform safely connects you to a curated community of 8,300 security researchers to securely capture, triage and reward vulnerabilities in your code. Reduce your effort by over 85% and get back to work!. On the other hand, HackerOne is detailed as "The Vulnerability Management & Bug Bounty Platform". Someone has found a potential security issue with your technology. What happens next? Making certain this discovery leads to a positive outcome for everyone involved is crucial. Replacing an antiquated security@ mailbox with the HackerOne platform brings order and control to an otherwise chaotic process.

Bugcrowd is a great platform with third party oversight ensuring that bugs submitted get paid for managed bounties and even assist if a non-managed bug bounty tries to rip off researchers. Hackerone does not have that. That is just one thing about bugcrowd that hackerone doesn't have.
