Fredrik Nordberg Almroth is Co-Founder and Head of Engineering at Detectify. He has been elected Security Expert of the Future 2015 by Symantec and is featured on Google Security Hall of Fame.
Security firm Detectify scans websites to provide in-depth analysis of potential malware risks. It raised $1.07 million (£836,000) in January 2017 from Helsinki-based Inventure Oy, building up to $6m in Series A round in March 2018.
Detectify is an online security scanner that automatically tests web applications for 700+ vulnerabilities. They use the knowledge of 100 handpicked ethical hackers to continuously detect the latest security issues and provide clients with information on how to fix them.
The firm recently launched a bug-bounty programme with white-hat hackers. “We’re working to increase the number of modules from this group of freelance hackers,” says CEO Rickard Carlsson. Customers include Trello, King, TrustPilot and Le Monde.
In 2019, it was announced that Detectify was expanding into the US market by relocating its services to Boston.
