Sponsored by Businesswire

SCYTHE, a leader in adversarial emulation, released the next step in the evolution of bug bounty, the SCYTHE Marketplace, today during UniCon. The SCYTHE Marketplace opens up SCYTHE’s synthetic malware creation platform to trusted third party developers, creating a central, secure space for the development and sharing of new adversary behaviors and capabilities. Customers integrate these modules into their SCYTHE campaigns to test themselves against the industry’s latest adversary behaviors at speed, maximizing the effectiveness of their red and purple team exercises.

“The SCYTHE Marketplace evolves the accelerated innovation of bug bounties to enable enterprises to securely identify, test, and detect malicious activity at the speed of attackers.” Jorge Orchilles, Chief Technology Officer of SCYTHE

SCYTHE’s Advisory Council of information security, technology, and business industry experts guides the development of the SCYTHE Marketplace: Chloé Messdaghi, John Strand, Sounil Yu, Tim MalcomVetter, and TJ O’Connor.

SCYTHE created UniCon, a free virtual conference for the security researcher and defender community, to coincide with its Marketplace release. In addition to the SCYTHE Marketplace release, UniCon featured keynotes from Olaf Hartong and John Strand, lighting talks with module developers, and briefings by industry leaders. It also included a brand new Capture The Flag event in collaboration with the C2 Matrix and SANS titled “Know Your Payload” where participants will run various payloads created by various Command and Control frameworks to understand what they really do and how to detect them in an enterprise environment.


SCYTHE provides an advanced attack emulation platform for the enterprise and cybersecurity consulting market. The SCYTHE platform enables Red, Blue, and Purple teams to build and emulate real-world adversarial campaigns in a matter of minutes. Customers are in turn enabled to validate the risk posture and exposure of their business and employees and the performance of enterprise security teams and existing security solutions. Based in Arlington, VA, the company is privately held and is funded by Gula Tech Adventures, Paladin Capital, Evolution Equity, and private industry investors.
