Our story: from security testing, to supporting assessment teams.
Having worked in various security roles over the past 15 years, we encountered many of the same
problems in many organisations. One of those problems really, really, bugged us: reporting. It
wasn't that we didn't enjoy it (well, not all of us despised it), it was the inefficiency of it
all. Some companies had built solutions that were highly bespoke to their needs, others were
copying and pasting content from Word documents, Wikis and other locations. Why was it that
sales teams had their CRMs? Developers had their SCMs? Security professionals had sticky
tape and plasters which they used to cobble useful tools together? We were indignant! Outraged!
The security community deserved better.
In the spring of 2011, we decided to break away from service delivery, and start supporting
service delivery teams. CheckSec was founded, and Canopy, a professional services automation and
reporting platform for security teams, was born.
Four years later, and we're still creating our story. We would very much
like you to be a part of that story too. Say hola!
