Founded on a mission to secure the web

Heyhack builds on more than 20 years of experience in penetration testing and has been founded to help organizations all around the world to strengthen the security of their applications and services.

Designed from the ground up in 2022

Heyhack was founded by Anders Skovsgaard and Sebastian Brandes who have worked as independent penetration test consultants for more than 20 years. After becoming frustrated with traditional web vulnerability scanners, the pair decided to built a novel penetration testing engine from the ground based on artificial intelligence and modern pentesting techniques.
The philosophy behind Heyhack is that you can't test what you can't see. Based on this guiding principle, Heyhack has been designed to crawl and scan modern web applications comprehensively to achieve 100% coverage. This enables Heyhack to evaluate and test every single DOM element, API, input field, and form to ensure that no stone has been left unturned.

Continuously improving our penetration testing engine

We continue to improve our penetration testing engine in Heyhack Scan all the time to ensure that we always stay ahead of hackers.
Whenever a new browser API is launched, updates to HTTP servers are released, changes to transfer protocols are announced, or new TLS policies are published by the major browsers, we immediately add new tests to our ever-growing test suite to assert that we cover every single case.
