In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

ASPM - the first of its kind:
Enso introduces a new category to the cyber security world - ASPM (Application Security Posture Management). While there are a decent number of players in the traditional AppSec domain (AST scanning tools on one hand, and AST orchestration platforms on the other hand), Enso’s focus is on collecting the right data, performing a smart analysis, and enabling automatic enforcement in a one-stop-shop for AppSec teams. While other products act as data sources to the platform, Enso is the only management platform for AppSec professionals.

Holistic and defragmented - a management solution:
Armed with advanced data collection and correlation features, our platform is the only platform that manages static and dynamic assets side by side, and shows a breakdown of all AppSec efforts, from installing protection systems, to automating testing to human led activities - in a unified, contextualized, actionable view.

Asset management vs Defect management:
Our platform instruments an asset-first approach to application security posture management. ASPM is a continuous process that enables AppSec teams to deal with larger scale and complexity. It focuses on collecting data to reflect the point of view of security across all assets. The data collected includes rich information about the asset inventory and properly organized data on security activities including defect management. Our platform addresses defect management (however important) as part of a much larger problem.

Brief Overview

Enso is the first Application Security Posture Management (ASPM) solution in the field of application security, created by AppSec professionals for AppSec professionals. Enso’s founders have experienced first hand the challenges AppSec teams are facing. With this unique experience, we have created a platform that can answer AppSec teams real life pain points. The future of securing applications is not in tools that create more work and reports, rather it is in the ability to automatically extract the interesting data from existing tools used by the organization and easily and efficiently manage, prioritize, and automate the actions needed without interfering with developers work.

Enso was founded in August 2020 by 3 former security leaders from Wix.com with various backgrounds including bug bounty experts, application security consultants, security team leaders and software developers. Enso has raised a $6 million seed funding round led by YL Ventures, with participation from Jump Capital and angel investors which include HackerOne co-founder and CTO Alex Rice; Sounil Yu, former chief security scientist at Bank of America; and Omkhar Arasaratnam, former head of Data Protection Technology at JPMorgan Chase. With a current team of 25, consisting of developers, researchers and experienced AppSec professionals, and an expanding portfolio of fortune 500 clients, Enso is disrupting the way application security is being performed in 2022.

Enso’s platform works in 3 steps:
1. Discover – Autonomously discover and profile applications, identify owners and technology.
2. Measure – Measure coverage and performance of application security controls.
3. Manage – Automate workflows to enforce a unified, sustainable AppSec policy across all assets.

Enso is proud to be spearheading the new and very important area of AppSec known as APSM. As the first APSM platform on the market, we have an innovative approach to finally help AppSec teams of organizations of various sizes automate, prioritize & enforce.
