Detectify was born from the simple idea that the internet was broken. The company was founded in 2013, and quickly became one of the most talked about startups in the field of web security. Since 2013, Detectify has received worldwide recognition for their security research , won several awards and nominations and attracted customers from a wide range of industries and company sizes.

The founders of Detectify are friends from school who shared a mutual curiosity of trying to understand how the internet was built. Years of programming led to a passion for web security and finding a way to integrate security into developers’ everyday workflow in an easy way. Today, the Detectify service is used by businesses worldwide and checks websites for more than 200 types of vulnerabilities, covering OWASP Top 10.
