Secure Code Warrior Announces Coding Labs Innovation

Secure Code Warrior introduced Coding Labs, a mechanism that enables developers to move from learning to applying secure coding knowledge more effectively, reducing code vulnerabilities.

This is the first time that a coding-specific platform enables real-time coding in an integrated development environment (IDE) in the browser.

Developers relied on virtualized setups, which led to less relevant learning experiences. Coding Labs saves developers time and eliminates distractions.

“We found that 40% of developers feel they don’t get enough hands-on training on their current tools and resources. We decided to fundamentally change that,” says Pieter Danhieux, co-founder and CEO of Secure Code Warrior.

“Coding Labs allows developers to learn in an environment that simulates the way they work and, in turn, will see them writing secure code with more confidence. This is the future of vulnerability mitigation.

Their learning approach helps developers’ coding skills improve their organizations. Coding Labs enables developers to write code in familiar IDEs to prevent cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

“With Secure Code Warrior, we can ensure that secure coding remains at the forefront of our developers’ minds and at their fingertips, while building a more security-conscious organization as a whole. I have seen patching of vulnerabilities as a direct result of deploying Secure Code Warrior training,” says a user who is a security manager at Komodo Health.

Secure Code Warrior creates a culture of security-focused developers by giving them the skills to code securely. Their flagship learning platform offers relevant skill-based paths, hands-on assignments, and contextual tools for developers to learn, develop, and apply their skills to write secure code. Founded in 2015, Secure Code Warrior has become a critical component for over 450 businesses, including leading financial services, retail, and global technology companies.

“Every organization wants to attract top talent, and one of the ways to do that is to provide career paths and training. Even during the interview process, we show potential candidates Secure Code Warrior as an advantage. work, and they’re often thrilled to see this kind of training. It’s one of the ways we attract safety-minded talent,” says a user who is a safety architect at Federal Railways.

“It’s critical that our organization be security-focused, and getting our developers security-minded from a coding, build, and testing perspective was key to my department’s plan. I really think people were excited about the event, and the Secure Code Warrior platform had a lot to do with it,” says a user who is a lead tester at Finra.

When developers understand how attackers can penetrate their code, organizations can stop vulnerabilities before they happen and reduce risk, cost, and time to release. SCW coding simulations teach developers to overcome challenges by completing hyper-relevant missions based on real-world scenarios, gaining a security-focused mindset that helps prevent security issues in the first place.
