AppSec Phoenix

I wrote this blog to showcase our mission and the principles that guide them


At Appsec Phoenix our mission is Making Software security Smart and accessible to everyone in an organizations 

The reason behind this mission comes from the frustration in application security and interaction between development and business whenever something needs to be fixed. Traditionally software security and communication with target is complex and challenging and this comes down to friction between people in the business area and dev 

We started this journey to make life easy for everyone in the business accelerating speed of development and decision making and removing frustration and friction
