What We're About

We’re a boutique security firm with an academic bent but grounded in reality.

We focus on:

  1. Building tools to help security professionals and AppSec teams be more efficient and effective.
  2. Security research, with a focus on automated bug finding and security automation (DevSecOps).
  3. Summarizing and distilling great security research from others.
