Business Focus:
Tinfoil Security has a founding team of MIT and intelligence community alumni, with extensive backgrounds in security across many organizations around the globe. We focus on serving enterprise and government customers, including many of those in the Fortune 500. Our team members are highly regarded thought leaders in the cybersecurity community, having competed internationally in Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions, serving as technical liaisons for the media, speaking at numerous conferences, and through involvement in leadership and advocacy groups. Tinfoil Security brings much-needed tools that require no additional burden or platforms to learn. Our effortless SaaS cybersecurity solutions protect the hard work of your DevOps teams. We have focused on creating the most comprehensive, transparent, and usable security products on the market. By focusing on developers, our products have streamlined the security process to provide the first line of security tools that easily integrate into any DevOps and SDLC development processes.

Our Web App Scanner checks for over 50 classifications of vulnerabilities, including all of the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Security Risks, and are always adding more as new zeroday vulnerabilities are discovered. We'll scan each time a new version of your site is deployed, and can also log into any website, including SAML / Single Sign-On authenticated sites. We also have our patent-pending Login Recorder (available as a simple Google Chrome extension) that allows you to teach the Tinfoil Security scanner how to authenticate into your site by recording your login sequence. We constantly update in real time, so you can be confident that your site is being protected against the latest threats. We regularly incorporate new tests, and consistently score higher than any other scanner on open-source benchmarks. You deserve the best, and that's what we build!

Our API Scanner is able to detect vulnerabilities in any API, including web-connected devices such as mobile backend servers, IoT devices, as well as any RESTful APIs. The few tools that are currently available lack coverage depth in API security, or are focused on acting as a firewall or unintelligent fuzzer. Vulnerabilities focused on authorization and access control concerns, or even web-like vulnerabilities, like XSS, manifest in different ways and with different exploitation vectors than they do for web applications. The security concerns for an API are fundamentally different from those for web applications. Our API scanner has been built, from the ground up, to focus on APIs specifically, rather than jury-rigging a web application scanner to be able to handle APIs half-well.

Tinfoil Security currently holds the following patents that fuel our products and make us stand out from everyone else in our space: 1) Site independent system for deriving contextually tailored security vulnerability corrections for hardening solution stacks (US9369482B2). 2) System and methods for scalably identifying and characterizing structural differences between document object models (US9305169B2). 3) Site independent methods for deriving contextually tailored security vulnerability corrections for hardening solution stacks (US9742791B2). 4) System and methods for scalably identifying and characterizing structural differences between document object models (US US9680856B2). We also have additional patents pending, including our API Scanner: Determining Security Vulnerabilities in Application Programming Interfaces (US20180255089A1)
