2015: SpyderSec Formed
SpyderSec was founded by Serge Borso in 2015 and headquartered in Denver Colorado. The reason SpyderSec was founded and continues to operate today is to make its clients better, more secure and ultimately a more difficult target for adversaries (and this mission statement hasn't changed since day 1).
2016: First Fortune 500 Client
Within its first year of operations, SpyderSec provided penetration testing services for its first fortune 500 client. This marked a milestone; solidifying SpyderSec's ability to serve large and geographically diverse organizations.
2016: First Repeat Client
The year 2016 also saw SpyderSec provide repeat work for a previous client. The hallmark of quality service, repeat business from satisfied clients is an ongoing mainstay at SpyderSec.
2017: Profit Sustainability
SpyderSec has been profitable since inception, but it was not until 2017 that revenue generation became sustainable and significant. To that end, SpyderSec was recognized by Enterprise Security Magazine: "Top 10 Vulnerability Management Solution Companies".
2018: Apprenticeship Program Launches
In partnership with Flatiron School (SecureSet Academy) SpyderSec launched an apprenticeship program. By hiring one student per cohort to learn the trade of Cyber Security, SpyderSec is working to help the student/apprentice, and the greater Security Community.
2019: Marketing Strategy
In March of 2019 SpyderSec sponsored SnowFROC (Denver's premier application security conference) which draws more than 400 people; taking the step to sponsor the event helped to solidify SpyderSec as a trusted community partner. SpyderSec's Purple Teaming service was also introduced which complements their offensive security and training services.
2020: 5 Year Anniversary
SpyderSec redesigned its website, expanded to new markets, sponsored SnowFROC for the 2nd year in a row, formally released an API for Espial™, weathered COVID-19 and looks forward to the future!
