About Us

AppSec Phoenix was born to focus on vulnerability and application security, a notoriously complex problem to solve

Our vision

We strive to make application security Simple For ALL

AppSec phoenix aims to

  • Enable quantification of security risk and impact in application security
  • Maximize the Return on Investment (ROI) of development time invested in fixing vulnerabilities
  • Minimize the time dedicate to FIX
  • Prioritize the vulnerability to highlight which vulnerability would be more dangerous to the company

Our Mission

Security Phoenix aims to enable risk quantification in application security and communicate with simple metrics and terms with the business enabling CISO to answer the questions: is our software secure, how much is the return on investment for security?
