It was frustration with false positives that, back in 2006, motivated penetration tester Ferruh Mavituna to find a better way to security scan the web applications he was testing.
Working through the night in his spare time, Ferruh wrestled with a concept that he was sure could solve the problem. It was this vision and determination that ultimately led him to create Netsparker; the acclaimed security scanner that is now the backbone of our business. (read the Netsparker story)
The 2016 Netsparker team is a little better resourced than in Ferruh’s pioneering days, but it still upholds the same values that cemented his early successes - innovation, agility and customer focus.
Despite substantial growth in both human and financial terms, the company is still 100% virtual, with team members using the latest tools and technologies to collaborate from their respective locations around the globe.
We have a relaxed attitude to our work but we are passionate about web application security and determined that our product development will push back the boundaries of what’s achievable. Every new release of Netsparker (typically 5 or 6 times a year) brings new capabilities, often employing techniques that were previously thought impossible to automate.
Netsparker is our only product and it represents the entire focus of our activities, which means it gets the full attention it deserves and continues to set new standards for innovation in its field.
But despite having an awesome product, we understand that customers are the real reason for our success and we believe in going the extra mile to support them. We regularly receive words of praise from our users and every design and development decision is ultimately the result of feedback from the front line.
Our company is well-funded and its business has been profitable and financially stable since almost the outset, so every stakeholder in our venture (customers, employees, investors, partners, contractors) can feel safe in the knowledge that we are in this for the long haul.
