Collaboration between Aequivalent and GObugfree: Emphasizing data protection

In a world where data security is a top priority, GObugfree and Aequivalent are working together to make it even stronger. GObugfree has set up a tailored Vulnerability Disclosure Program (VDP) for Aequivalent. On request, Aequivalent offer additional background checks for select friendly hackers on GObugfree's platform. Through this partnership, they ensure that sensitive information receives an extra layer of protection.


In today's digital landscape, where data breaches are all too common, strong security measures are crucial. This is particularly true for companies like Aequivalent, Switzerland’s leading digital platform for employment screening, or background checks. Through its secure online solution, Aequivalent helps employers reduce the risk of inappropriate employment by ensuring potential hires have been thoroughly vetted. To enhance its security measures, which already include traditional tactics like routine pentesting, Aequivalent teamed up with GObugfree to implement a comprehensive Vulnerability Disclosure Program (VDP).

An additional layer of security with a VDP

GObugfree’s VDP offers Aequivalent a structured process for security researchers to responsibly disclose potential vulnerabilities. Marc Tinguely, Sales & Marketing Director at Aequivalent says, “With the vulnerability disclosure program, Aequivalent raises the bar again in the security and protection of our users’ private data. GObugfree’s straightforward approach and platform make the disclosure process simple and efficient”. This additional layer of security serves to uplift the trust that Aequivalent’s clients place in them. The sensitive data that Aequivalent handles are better safeguarded thanks to the efforts of GObugfree, among other robust IT security measures the company has in place.

Beyond Identity Checks: Validation by Aequivalent

For added security, Aequivalent also validates selected friendly hackers on GObugfree's platform. While GObugfree already performs identity checks through its identity verification partner, fidentity, Aequivalent's additional layer of validation is particularly beneficial for clients dealing with highly sensitive data.
