Brief Overview

Web apps continue to be the #1 source of successful data breaches with an average cost of $3M+ per breach. But developers often don’t fully understand the stakes of shipping insecure code and don’t know how to detect vulnerabilities in their code.

The HackEDU secure coding training platform was created four years ago by an engineering leader and a former CISO. Since then, hundreds of companies from the Fortune 500 to startups are using this training to teach entry level and even senior developers to think about application security in the software design phase.

The training engages and educates developers by letting them put on their hacking hats to see how a vulnerability can be exploited and then challenging them to fix the code in a virtual sandbox. Additionally, the HackEDU platform integrates with SAST/DAST and bug bounty tools to identify an organization’s unique set of software vulnerabilities and create adaptive training plans to efficiently train their developers in the areas they need it most.

With hundreds of courses and challenges on topics such as OWASP Top 10, Mobile, and API, DevSecOps, which are updated monthly, this platform provides everything necessary to reduce the risk of successful cyberattacks and for secure coding compliance such as PCI-DSS, NIST 800-53, SOC, and HIPAA/HITRUST.
