About

Deepfactor is a developer security platform that enables engineering teams to quickly discover and resolve security vulnerabilities, supply chain risks, and compliance violations early in development and testing. Requiring zero code changes, agents, or privileged kernel code, Deepfactor is purpose-built to observe every thread and process of cloud native applications. This enables developers to seamlessly observe running workloads to identify, prioritize, and remediate insecure code and vulnerabilities.

The platform integrates into developers’ existing toolchains to deliver application-aware security insights with detailed information about application behavior, system calls, and stack traces that help pinpoint vulnerable code. Deepfactor simplifies and accelerates DevSecOps by empowering engineering teams to develop secure and compliant cloud native applications.

Deepfactor is created for developers by developers. Our founding team has over 100 years of collective software development experience. We use Deepfactor internally and are ready to answer any questions you may have. Contact us if you would like to connect with our team.
