Code Intelligence

Code Intelligence enables companies to strengthen the security and reliability of their software. At the foundation of its technology stack the startup utilizes fuzzing, a modern application security testing technology. Through fuzzing a large scale of attack vectors can be tested automatically through pseudo-random mutations of the input parameters, uncovering vulnerabilities as well as reliability issues efficiently and timely.
As useful as fuzzing is in uncovering bugs in software, setting it up and using it properly is time-consuming and requires highly qualified IT security experts. The goal of Code Intelligence is twofold: on the one hand to make security testing experts work more efficiently, and on the other hand to make the security testing process more usable and automated so that even developers without security expertise can implement modern standards.
