Edgescan, the provider of the most comprehensive fullstack vulnerability management solution, today announces a partnership with Manicode Security, the secure coding education company. With a combination of lecture, security testing demonstration, and code review, Manicode classes are sure to entertain and educate app, web services, and mobile software developers and architects to the practices of secure development.
Jim Manico is not your average trainer, nor is anyone in his team of highly qualified professors. With lessons delivered by Michelin-starred chefs with a PhD in computer science, to talks that start with a headstand on stage, Manicode Security aims to make secure development training something that leaves the class energized and motivated. Their philosophy is that learning secure coding shouldn’t be a yawn-inducing, box-ticking exercise, but something that is memorable, engaging, and motivating.
“I have followed Edgescan for years, and I’ve seen their technology mature”, said Jim Manico, founder of Manicode Security. “Their philosophy is in line with what I teach: it’s a no-nonsense approach, focused on delivering operational value and tangible results. I’m excited about this partnership and I look forward to seeing how their presence will grow in North America, as more and more organizations recognize the value of teaching the practices of secure coding and of embedding security into their processes.”
“I’m glad to be back partnering with Jim, he’s a force of nature and an authority on all things software security,” said Eoin Keary, CEO and co-founder of Edgescan. “Security starts with education and should be integrated into coding practices, rather than an afterthought. The Edgescan platform combined with Manicode will deliver problem based, focused security education based on the challenges faced by our clients. With Manicode we hope to continue to spread awareness and advocate for a culture of security across the board”.
