Our vision is to drive the future of internet security

Founded in 2013 in Stockholm, Detectify has grown from an idea of a group of security-interested friends to a 140+ employee strong SaaS security company. We drive the future of internet security by automating and scaling crowdsourced vulnerability research.

Detectify offers cloud-based external attack surface management products that streamline asset discovery and vulnerability assessment to security and product development teams. Detectify collaborates with ethical hackers to source the latest security research from hacker-to-scanner in as fast as 15 minutes, and delivers reliable payload-based testing to customers. This means verified results and clearer visibility with less noise. With Detectify you will bring security up to speed and scale with development, and go to market safer.

Detectify is available on the global market, except US and EU/UN sanctioned countries. It is tech-agnostic, which means you can deploy the scanning engines as long as you are hosted in the cloud. Currently Detectify is trusted by 1900+ security-conscious companies including popular app-makers Spotify, King, Trello, Grammarly. No matter how much security knowledge you have, Detectify helps you stay on top of security and build safer web applications.

"Our vision is to create an easy and automated security service that makes the internet more secure."
