About Tinfoil Security (recently acquired by Synopsys!):

We write tools that are used to secure the largest web applications and APIs in the world. If you've ever watched a video or streamed music online, your data has probably been secured by code we've written. To date, our software has found and fixed over two million security vulnerabilities on the web.

We hook security into CI and testing frameworks and have security tests run alongside unit, regression, and integration tests. Using the same techniques as malicious hackers, we systematically test all the access points. As we find vulnerabilities we’ll stick them right back in front of developers, either in a simple checklist format or by integrating into their issue tracker of choice, instantly notifying developers when there's a threat and giving step-by-step instructions, tailored to their software stack, to eliminate it.

We’re not limited by technologies or software stacks. Be it a website or API driven mobile app or IoT device, we can secure it.
