Jackhammer is an integrated tool suite that comes with out-of-the-box industry standard integrations. It is a first-of-its-kind tool that combines static analysis, dynamic web app analysis, mobile security, API security, network security, CMS security, AWS/Azure security tools, docker/container security, and vulnerability manager that gives a complete glimpse into security posture of the organization. Using this suite, even senior leadership can have a comprehensive view of their organization’s security.

Why was it needed? Security, while being imperative for any organization, it is hard to comprehend by most of the developers. Security engineers need to scrutinize every service or app turning security analysis a time intensive and repetitive. What if there exists a tool that can empower everyone to test their code for vulnerabilities, automate security analysis, and show the overall security hygiene of the company?

How does it work? Jackhammer initiates various types of scans using existing proven tools and the results are consumed by onboard vulnerability manager. Unique dashboard presents intuitive interface giving the user a holistic view of the code base. The normalized reports are instantly accessible to developers, QAs, TPMs, and security personnel.

It can be plugged/integrated with:

It creates a sandbox using dockers for every tool and scales the systems when the scan needs it and descale on completion of the scans. The spin-up and tear down is a completely automated process so no person needs to look at the resources making it inexpensive and cost-effective.
