A pioneer in the software security industry
We were originally funded by DARPA and NASA in 1992 to design programs to combat cyber threats and make their software more predictable during failure.
In the mid 1990’s, Cigital Labs went on to develop some of the most important advancements in software security including the first ever commercial Static Analysis tool, ITS4. The technology in this product was eventually licensed to Kleiner Perkins and used as the basis for the creation of Fortify Software in 1999. Fortify went on to become the global leader in the static analysis tool marketplace and was sold to Hewlett Packard in 2010 for $300 million.
Over the past two decades Cigital has continued to lead the industry with innovative products and services, developed based on first-hand experience and direct feedback from our clients. We have been awarded 8 different software security patents, published over 20 books on software security, and have grown to 400 security consultants across the world with operations in North America, Europe and Asia.
Our unique expertise, product technologies, and training services are a culmination of over twenty years of research and thousands of successful software security consulting engagements at leading public and private organizations throughout the world.
Today, Cigital is a privately held company with substantial investment from LLR Partners, a private equity firm with more than $2 billion under management.
We are application security experts, architects, advisors, strategics, ethical hackers, developers, and more.
