DIU Startup Showcase: ForAllSecure Makes Software Security Autonomous
Please join the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) for an intimate discussion with the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge winning security startup who received $5+ million in non-dilutive capital to bring its autonomous cybersecurity tools into the Department of Defense. This is the second in a series that showcases startups that have worked with DIU to solve national security challenges.
ForAllSecure was founded with the mission to make the world's software safe, automatically. ForAllSecure’s software security tool, Mayhem, proved systems are capable of autonomously finding and fixing software security bugs when it won first place in the 2016 DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge. Today, ForAllSecure continues to apply its patented technologies to solve software security’s greatest challenges.
By partnering with DIU in a two year contract, ForAllSecure has been able to work directly with key stakeholders to deeply understand the unique requirements for the DoD’s mission critical platforms. The company has also partnered with Fortune 1000 companies in aerospace, automotive, and high-tech industries to integrate Mayhem into software development cycles for continuous security in critical systems.
Learn from ForAllSecure Founder & CEO and CMU Professor David Brumley, who will recount what it’s like to bootstrap a startup to profitability and partner with the Government to design solutions that solve national security challenges.
Join us to learn how the DIU has made it possible for startups with the best technology to tackle the toughest national security challenges.
