If you use Detectify, you have probably met Johan Båth, our Customer Success Manager who is the first point of contact for many of our customers. After completing his degree in mechanical engineering in Uppsala, Johan first dipped his toes into the startup world in San Francisco. His entrepreneurial spirit and technical background combined with experience in web development and customer support led him to Detectify, where he tirelessly guides our customers through the setup process and troubleshooting.
Web security in 2016 is very different from what it was like in 2006, 1996 or even further back. As technology evolves and leaps forward, unfortunately, so do vulnerabilities. Prevention strategies that were sufficient ten years ago might not hold up well in the face of fast-paced progress. Our society is becoming increasingly networked, which broadens the scope of potential exploits. All this warrants a new perspective on security based on an understanding of how the field has changed and how to respond to new challenges. In this article, we explain how web security has evolved and share best practices that are key to staying safe online.

Joachim Hedenius, KRY’s co-founder and CTO, talked to us about the advantages of using Detectify.
Web security is a top priority for every bank, but perhaps even more so for a bank that has decided to focus on remote services, via phone and online banking. SBAB’s IT security team uses Detectify to improve the security of their public website. We talked to Erik Glad, who works with IT Security at SBAB, to learn more about his thoughts on web security and Detectify.
Here at Detectify, we love new features, and we know that a lot of our customers do too. That’s why we want to give you a chance to try out what’s new as soon as we build it! Although they are new and exciting, beta features may not be 100% production-ready or may never even reach production for all customers.
