🚀About Us

With a goal to help SMBs get secure as easy as ordering a pizza, we started by building the simplest MVP1 for a company to scope and outsource pentesting to vetted pentesting boutiques across Europe. It was just the beginning. Now we want to build a seamless experience for customers to prepare for ISO 27001 and SOC2 audits in weeks rather than months by integrating in their everyday tools and monitoring their security
We recently closed the pre-seed round, and now are looking for a freelance Back-End Engineer to join our agile team remotely.
