Our mission

Getting hacked sucks – it should be easy for modern organizations to get a solid security test.

The traditional pentesting and assessment industry is outdated and modern organizations want something better than archaic consultancy pdf-reports and inefficient application security scanners.

Cobalt Labs was founded in July of 2013 by Jacob Hansen, Esben Friis-Jensen, Jakob Storm and Christian Hansen to rethink application security and build a beautiful integrated application security platform connecting modern organizations with top security talent.
