The Secure Code Warrior platform and suite of secure coding tools


About technology

Secure Code Warrior is a dynamic, integrated suite of training and tools that empower developers to become the first line of defense against cyber risk. Utilizing an online platform with advanced gamification techniques, a developer can play in a relevant coding language and framework while solving real-world security challenges which positively impact their day-to-day compliance expectations, as they learn to write applications with a security-first mindset. This actively reduces the number of common vulnerabilities revealed in post-production testing, while enabling faster, more secure code and improving the relationship between security and development teams. Our tools assist in shifting the focus from reaction to prevention, helping developers to find and fix vulnerabilities at the speed of agile and DevOps innovation. Gamified, hands-on training and tournaments drive engagement and retention, and the platform includes self-paced learning and assessments for every skill level. Secure Code Warrior makes security exciting, and impacts how developers think and behave. The concerning reality is that developers often leave educational institutions with little security knowledge. Further, in everyday work, they are rarely assessed on whether their code is secure. Any security training is often non-existent or a boring, irrelevant ‘tick-the-box’ compliance activity. Our 100+ enterprise customers leverage the platform to empower tens of thousands of developers with the knowledge and tools to code securely, scale secure coding excellence and set a new standard for their in-house applications. We demonstrate that security can be fun, with strong ROI for organizations who are serious about reducing their security risk profile.
