Better application security, now.

Our Technology

Security Sidekick takes a new approach to web application security that makes setup easy and operation seamless. Discovery and passive testing is performed in real-time as sites are visited on your network by real users.

You can’t protect what you don’t know exists, so we identify and track all your applications in detail.

Application security

We test for CWEs, not CVEs to find true application security vulnerabilities.

Fast and seamless

Automatically test all target web applications without slowing you down.

Bring the speed of devops to security

Don’t just test early and often, test always.
