What makes AppSecEngineer different?

Most corporate security training fails because it is tedious and boring. Only a handful of teams get trained, while others don't. The quality of training is compromised.

AppSecEngineer can be your partner in fixing the security gap between your teams. We have an outstanding collection of world-class AppSec resources, and we’re confident that we can effectively train all your teams to get the skills needed. 

Develop security skills for everyone on the team

It’s not enough to have security measures in place and emphasize on selective circulation of information. Team members need to have a full understanding of them and know how to deal with vulnerabilities and anything suspicious. AppSecEngineer has one of the biggest libraries of application security materials in the industry. From developers and security engineers to pentesters and security champions, we guarantee high-quality training from world-class security experts.

When you encounter major challenges in your workplace, you need to use hands-on problem-solving skills to solve them. AppSecEngineer is a firm believer that learning doesn’t have to be boring. We stray away from video-only courses or one-way learning. In fact, we made sure to incorporate hands-on labs in all our courses to keep our learners engaged.

What do you mean “All your security learning in one place”?

Most of the time, corporate training fails because of its lack of organization. Especially with security, it’s crucial to train each of your teams. Skipping a team or two just because you feel like it’s “unnecessary” for them to learn security means that the quality of your training is erratic. It has no consistency.

To have complete visibility of your Teams’ progress, AppSecEngineer’s Admin Panel will show how well learners are doing with downloadable reports, visual analytics, and even assigning specific courses to specific teams.

How is AppSecEngineer’s “red team vs. blue team” to HackEDU’s “offensive/defensive approach to training”?

Both AppSecEngineer and HackEDU believe that one of the best ways to prepare learners to face security challenges in their workplaces is with purple teaming.

But is that really all that there is to it?

AppSecEngineer adds one more key step in the mix: Detection. Once you are familiar with attacks and exploitation of apps using various tools, we’ll help you detect those attacks at the earliest stage possible. Afterward, we’ll train you to not only prevent breaches but to also build ultra-efficient security processes that reduce costs and manual hours.

AppSecEngineer's content also features real-world security scenarios that our team have encountered while working with product teams at multiple Fortune 500 companies in recent years.

This grounds our lab exercises in real challenges engineering teams face on a daily basis, even at the highest levels.
