The Problem This Solution Solves
Current methods of finding unknown software vulnerabilities in military weapon systems do not scale, which is estimated to be a $1.79 trillion problem. Despite the magnitude of this threat, contemporary DoD software acquisition practices and priorities are roadblocks that slow the intake of innovative, commercially-proven solutions to these problems. In addition, DoD lacks access to automation to augment the small cadre of experts on staff and verify their work. This gap leaves space for potential adversaries to find and exploit vulnerabilities in weapon systems and other critical software.

ForAllSecure’s core product, Mayhem, is optimized for Linux-based systems and detects zero-day vulnerabilities through advanced fuzzing and generates cybersecurity tests without manual labor. Mayhem’s autonomy reduces the cost and time to find and eliminate vulnerabilities, and its integration into agile software-development pipelines can provide assurances of the integrity of critical software components before they are pushed out into production systems. Without the need to manually investigate software components, this automation helps address the growing lack of cybersecurity expertise, removing the need for a fully staffed team of cybersecurity analysts.
