Who we are:

Our hunger for success drives our actions. We have respect for all, respect that people will have different opinions, and strive to mitigate unconscious bias. We commit to being responsible, transparent, and accountable in our actions to our customers and each other. We have a growth mindset , believe challenges can be opportunities, and ask what we can do 10% better each time.

We believe in a world where autonomous application security allows us to move faster and beat attackers. We do not believe the status quo is working, as companies are developing software much faster than they can manually secure it. We developed an autonomous appsec AI engine called Mayhem, which automatically tests and finds new zero-day exploitable vulnerabilities before attackers. Mayhem was battle tested in and won the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Project Agency) Cyber Grand Challenge, and exhibited at the US Smithsonian Museum. ForAllSecure is bringing Mayhem to the world as an enterprise sales technology.

ForAllSecure’s customers include Roblox, Cloudflare, Motional, US CyberCommand, where applications range from securing online platforms used by millions to critical mission safety systems. Fortune 1000 companies in aerospace, automotive, and high-tech partner with ForAllSecure for scalable, advanced security testing that keeps pace with increasing development speeds and deployment frequencies. Other awards include the 2021 SINET 16, 2021 Global Infosec Award, and the MIT Technology Review as one of the 50 Smartest Companies. We are backed by NEA and KDI, having just raised our Series B funding.
