The world has changed

Software is eating the world and open source has eaten software development. DevOps has changed the way we build and deploy software and the cloud has changed the way we operationalize it all. It’s a new world order.

Security teams are
drowning in noise

Security teams like yours need to scramble when every new CVE hits the wire, alerts come into the SOC and vulnerabilities flood in from automated scanning tools. Spray and pray doesn't work. It’s slow, expensive, ineffective and frustrating.

Screw security busy work

Imagine: instead of running around with your hair on fire, hiring an army of security engineers and worrying about a spiraling budget - instead your team is totally Zen. You’re calm and confident. Working on the right things, for the right reasons. It’s security nirvana.

The key?

We believe the key to this Zen mindset lies in being able to focus on what matters. No more drowning in CVE alerts, SAST and SCA findings, pen test reports, Jira tickets, etc. To transcend to security greatness, you need to silence the noise and focus.

Enter Crash Override

Turning noise into signal is what we do. We provide you with a clear, prioritized list of what to focus on now, next, or never, along with proper evidence and context to support those recommendations. What’s more - you can interactively query anything, anytime.

We are building the platform alongside a set of design partners who operate security programs at some of the world's top companies. If you share our vision and want to help shape the future of our product then we would love to hear from you.

So why the name Crash Override?

Everyone likes to think they are different but name another security company with an official soundtrack from The Prodigy, Underworld, Leftfield and Carl Cox.

We are literally a security company named after a film that celebrated the hacker manifesto and the inclusivity of outliers.

We are Crash Override, join our movement and screw security busy work.
