But don’t just take our word, try it now!”

- Immediate & Actionable Results: Scan code for traditional environments and serverless functions, find 70% more critical vulnerabilities and receive actionable results with 6x more true positives in seconds. Prioritizes vulnerabilities and provides actionable remediation guidance.

- From Start to Finish in Minutes: Frictionless and seamless signup process with GitHub or Google Account. Optionally, use a provided GitHub Action to automate the linkage to your GitHub pipeline – from zero to secure in less than five minutes. Enables developers to automate common workflows.
