No matter how your team changes their tech stack, Secure Code Warrior almost always has your back.

enterprise all-in-one secure coding skills platform

We provide enterprises the aggregated set of capabilities they need to build securely. Developers adopt secure coding skills by learning in context. Engineering managers can measure the security expertise of every team member. Deployed by the world's top financial institutions, our solution is battle-tested and capable of helping developers from awareness to compliance-ready and beyond.

A better educational outcome

Provide best-in-class professional development based on educational research for long-term results. We take a tiered approach to training that builds skills from the ground up and everything in between. From n00b-friendly videos to interactive coding challenges in real-world simulations, you can tailor your program to upskill developers of any level.

Achieve regulatory compliance in record time

Curated learning pathways focus your developers and AppSec teams efforts, helping you target specific vulnerabilities. Eliminate time-consuming manual tasks with automated workflows, reminders, and reporting for auditing. Reduce operational costs whilst meeting compliance requirements for mission-critical audits like PCI-DSS or SOC-2.

Customer Success Manager - from setup to rollout

Setting up is not hard, but rolling out gets tricky. Your assigned CSM works with you like a strategic partner to scale your security program (only available for enterprise customers). While you can get help setting up the training program with HackEDU, Secure Code Warrior helps you go beyond training to achieve developer upskilling and a strong security culture.
