Nuno Loureiro, Probe.ly’s founder and CEO, spent 15 years fighting hackers. He found testing security complicated – white-hat penetration-testing and bug bounties are the gold standard, but few companies employ both on a daily basis. Probe.ly’s software runs continuously on apps and sites, searching for flaws and launching attacks to analyse their response. Unlike its competitors, Probe.ly is aimed at developers, not security professionals.
