TECNO Security Response Center (SRC) has announced a new partnership with HackerOne, the world’s most trusted provider of ethical hacking solutions.
This partnership is a strategic move from TECNO’s playbook to pre-emptively combat cyber crime and protect its growing global user base against potential security risks.

While we strive to make our cutting-edge technology more accessible to our users, it remains our top priority to put in place new defenses, such as our most recent collaboration with HackerOne, to safeguard our users from potential threats.” Stephen Ha, general manager of TECNO said:
HackerOne’s pre-emptive approach to cybersecurity and highly efficient process to stress test systems, surface bugs, and fix vulnerabilities has made them a top choice as TECNO’s valued partners. It partners with the global hacker community to surface the most relevant security issues before they are exploited by dangerous hackers.
