Everything started in 2015, when Jb and I left Apple to co-found Sqreen, with a singular vision to democratize security. Our belief then, as it is now, is that a strong security posture can only exist when security is infused across the software development lifecycle; when it is not just the concern of security teams, but of developers and operations teams as well.
