"HackerOne, a San Francisco-based 'vulnerability coordination and bug bounty platform,' reports that it has some 800 corporate customers who paid out more than $15 million in bonuses to white-hat hackers since its founding in 2012."

'Clients that have used the platform include General Motors, Uber, Twitter, Starbucks and even the US Department of Defense.
