Our Mission

Empower Security to Move at the Speed of Engineering

Why Cider?


After spending our entire careers in the security trenches, we established Cider to address the pains we felt in our day-to-day. We witnessed the struggles and complexities engineering and security teams faced on daily basis. And we knew this reality must change. So we decided to change it. It is our mission to reshape the way security and engineering teams work together – and enable fast, secure and scalable software delivery.
