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

RAQUEL OLLÉS Operations Manager

JORGE ESPERÓN member image

Dad of two and science lover. I´m a life-long learner and I like to share learning with others. I believe security is a intrinsic quality of good software, from design to implementation, not only a patch at the end of a process. It´s a continuum set of tradeoffs that Bussiness and IT should make together. I began my career as a C++ developer and I have been working in IT Security for more than 10 years. My experience goes from threat monitoring in different SOC´s, AppSec consulting services and implementing process to automate security into the SDLC. I am a big fan of Baroque music and I also enjoy reading and writing SciFi stories. Sometimes I run to clear my mind.
