Our Philosophy

We are dedicated to building the tools you need to manage and test the security of your software. Security tools and processes have to be business enablers, not blockers; and they cannot slow down the speed of development. Our solutions integrate with the normal development workflow, so that security is truly built in and not bolted on.

    I started my career with a passion for analysing and solving problems in Java; and have applied this knowledge by working in a number of different business areas.  In my free time I’ve also explored the world of Big Data and R, which I’m looking forward to applying to software security management.  On a personal note, I’m an Asianophile and one of my personal goals is to become a decent Baduk player.
