The Standard for
Security in DevOps
In a landscape shaken by recent high-profile incidents, it's clear that the conventional cyber toolbox falls short against advanced attacks. Reactive measures won't let us stay ahead.
Enter Rampart™: a next-generation Application Protection tool, that turns the vulnerability-based security approach on its head. With a focus only on allowed behaviors, defined early in the CI/CD pipeline (during testing), Rampart™ has revolutionized the shift left security approach, applying zero-trust to application development.
This is application security reimagined.

Cyber Security Thought Leader
The Rampart™ story started in 2018, when members of our team were challenged to develop a cyber solution that would defend against attacks embedded in trusted software -- without having to rewrite the software.
With a deep understanding of the ever-increasing problems associated with known vulnerabilities, we reimagined the concept of application security and developed a solution based on a behavior-based anomaly approach. We successfully built and validated Rampart™.
This success became the foundation for our vision to bring Rampart™ to the commercial market in 2021.
