Kontra, JustCode Team Up To Launch New CodeDefender Challenge


ThriveDX has announced a new partnership between its Kontra Application Security Training and JustCode, a technology skills assessment platform, to launch the CodeDefender Challenge. This exercise is designed to allow businesses of all sizes and practitioners of all skill levels to assess their secure code practices and unveil any Open Worldwide Application Security Project (OWASP) Top 10 Vulnerabilities, free of charge.

Kontra Application Security Training powered by ThriveDX and JustCode’s Code Defender challenge is designed to help teams determine the true state of their secure code capabilities and fill the gaps with advanced training.

“Developers, though excellent at writing functional code, are struggling to design security into their software. Vulnerabilities and exploits are routinely found and application security simply is not always a priority,” said Roy Zur, CEO of ThriveDX Enterprise. “This collaboration between ThriveDX’s best in class Kontra Application Security Training and JustCode will allow anyone to assess their secure code practices and then implement interactive and effective training to eliminate vulnerabilities.”

“Security breaches are on the rise, and it’s crucial for organizations to prioritize secure coding practices to protect their valuable data,” said Aditya Narayan, CEO of JustCode. “Our partnership with ThriveDX’s Kontra Application Security Training empowers developers, team leaders, and cybersecurity executives to proactively identify and address vulnerabilities, ultimately strengthening the security posture of their applications.”
