Never heard of Digitsec, Inc.? Here’s 5 things you should know to about them.

1: We’re a young startup that packs a powerful punch.

DigitSec, Inc. was founded in early 2017 by our CEO, Waqas Nazir. Waqas had spent the previous 8 years working as a cyber security consultant for Fortune 100 companies and had amassed a large amount of knowledge and insight around SaaS application security design. After noticing a gap in the marketplace, he created S4 – SaaS Security Scanner for Salesforce. It was an instant success with clients and has continued to make waves in the Salesforce industry ever since. Shortly after the company was founded, DigitSec became a registered ISV partner with Salesforce – allowing us to join the AppExchange and help a greater number of people.

2: S4, our SaaS security scanner, does a lot more to protect your data than other security solutions on the market.

With our patented white-box fuzzing, S4 can rapidly identify injection flaws other security scanners on the market aren’t able to detect. This enables us to offer vulnerability tracking for risks like authorization bypass, stored cross-site scripting, and Lightning components XSS – all of which are not currently offered by other similar security solutions. Learn more about the other risks and vulnerabilities we cover here.

(EFD – Check out the list of risks and vulernabilities covered…it’s quite a list!)

3. Salesforce security is more than what we sell – it’s what we practice every day.

At DigitSec, a commonality between employees is our passion for security. Everyday we think about how we can improve our solution and better protect Salesforce users. One of the ways we do this, is by looking ahead and keeping track of data privacy trends and compliance laws. Leading up to the GDPR for example, we devised our security scanner to account for each of the law’s relevant security regulations. By acting right away, we helped many companies meet compliance levels before it was too late – saving them from heavy fines and potential breaches.

(EFD – I’m sure many companies are glad to have you looking out for their interests when it comes to privacy and compliance laws!)

4. We put a high value on the relationships we’ve developed in the Salesforce community.

There’s hardly a Salesforce conference out there we haven’t been to and had a wonderful time at. We love our ever-growing Salesforce Ohana and can’t say ‘thank you,’ enough to the people we’ve met since the company first started. You’ve been our friends, our customers, and even our mentors.

5. We offer a free version of our SaaS security scanner you can test today.

At the end of the day, we want every Salesforce user to be able to have secure data. If they’re not aware of the risks their platforms face though, it’s hard to help them. That’s why we created a free version of S4. With one click, Salesforce users can scan their instance and receive a detailed report of the risks and vulnerabilities confronting it. You can test out the free version of S4 here.

(EFD – Be sure to check out the free version and get your detailed report.)

EFD – Thanks, Allison, for bringing the value of Digitsec to my attention and allowing me to share it with others.
