Kontra-Redefining Application Security Training
Kontra was founded in 2020 by industry veteran Gyan Chawdhary who invented and pioneered the first interactive application security training platform - Codebashing, which was acquired by Checkmarx in 2018.
Having recognized that traditional application security training is boring for developers, with monotonous videos and presentations, Gyan set out to develop an interactive, immersive and intuitive learning experience that engages developers. Kontra is not your typical application security training company. We don’t believe in basic code quizzes, outdated exercises, or trainings that simply check the box.
Kontra prides itself on offering training that is based on real-life enterprise scenarios and focuses on translating industry-relevant skills into application security expertise, storytelling, active engagement, and simulations.
