Software makes promises. We want to help you keep yours.

With an assessment, our consultants evaluate the integrity of your application by acting as a skilled adversary to identify your software's weaknesses before they put your users and business at risk.

Our security specialists have a real passion for the craft. We don’t provide boilerplate assessments. We don’t just push a button and send you a report. We put highly qualified humans in front of your application.

Focused on your business

When we engage your application, we start by identifying the places that matter most to your organization—the data you most want to protect, that keeps you up at night.

In our assessments, we look at your application and your most valuable data through the perspective of a malicious attacker. We combine an understanding of criminal methodologies, industry best practices, and our own proprietary approaches. Then we take aim at the data and services that you prioritize protecting.

Continuous improvement is our goal

We are passionate about helping organizations improve their culture when it comes to security. We love to help developers level-up their security knowledge and capabilities in a non-judgmental way.

Ultimately, developers are the authors of the vulnerabilities in your software—each engineer's knowledge is your greatest security asset or liability, so one of the best investments you can make in the security of your application is security consulting that educates.

We're developers, too. We know keeping up with the fast-changing world of software development is hard enough. Adding security on top of that is daunting.

We always take an empathetic approach that affirms and builds on the security knowledge your team has. We're privileged to work with people and teams who are at all experience when it comes to dealing with security.

Our reports and advice and guidance aim to do more than patch specific vulnerabilities, but understand what processes and education can prevent similar ones in the future.

Our reports prioritize understanding

With our assessments, your developers will get a report full of vulnerabilities and our guidance.

Here's how our security assessment approach helps your developers reduce the number of vulnerabilities in the future:

  • We provide education about how attackers think and approach attacking an application, allowing developers to understand how to proactively build better security controls in the the future.
  • We teach developers about the different kinds of vulnerabilities we've encountered, and how to reduce their occurrence.
  • We deliver a checklist of vulnerabilities to fix creating a roadmap to a more secure future.

At the end of an engagement, we sit down for a collaborative debrief session between our team, your developers, and application stakeholders. We review the report and discuss the findings, answering any questions that you have.

We build mutual trust with a positive approach

We want developers to have a good experience exposing their vulnerability. Our culture tends to shame developers over security. We

Application security is hard and it’s uncomfortable having your application poked and prodded by a security team.

Our engagements expose your team to this process allowing developers to get comfortable with the feeling of vulnerability and knowing they can do something about it and not just ignore it to make the feeling go away.

Our team works to constantly empathize with the feeling of being on the receiving end of an attack.

When should I get an assessment?

Here's some examples of situations where you might find an assessment beneficial:

  • You just built a new product and want to make sure the security and privacy promises you are making are valid.
  • You just rolled out new features to your application.
  • Enterprise customers are starting to ask questions like “When was your last security assessment?” and demanding copies of the report.
  • You are in the M&A process and want to provide confidence in the security of your software.
  • You've made assessments a core part of your developer education process.
  • It’s been a year since your last engagement with a security professional. Time has passed and you are unsure if any new attacks / vulnerabilities exist in your application.
