Kontra Application Security Training Redefined.

Driven by security and powered by developers

Developer-first application security training platform

Founded in 2020 by industry veteran Gyan Chawdhary who invented and pioneered the first interactive application security training platform – Codebashing, which was acquired by Checkmarx in 2018.

Having recognized that traditional application security training is boring for developers, with monotonous videos and presentations, Gyan set out to develop an interactive, immersive and intuitive learning experience that engages developers.

Kontra by ThriveDX prides itself on offering training that is based on real-life enterprise scenarios and focuses on translating industry-relevant skills into application security expertise, storytelling, active engagement, and simulations.

The Worlds Largest Interactive Training Library

We are proud to provide over 300 interactive, bit sized modules in our application security training program.
Our large library includes a wide range of topics, including:

  • OWASP Top 10 for Web
  • OWASP Top 10 for API
  • Front-end Top 5
  • AWS Top 10
  • Cloud & DevOps
  • and more

We are committed to staying ahead of the curve by adding new and updated content every month to ensure that our users have access to the latest cybersecurity threats and best practices.

Innovated Training Content

At Kontra, we’re passionate about providing developers with the tools and knowledge they need to build secure code that proactively prevents security breaches. Our cutting-edge training content is designed to reduce the risk of code being compromised from the outset.

We go beyond traditional secure code training by providing hyper-realistic scenarios that draw inspiration from real-life situations and showcase the complete attack cycle. By providing this level of context, we give developers the tools they need to prevent vulnerabilities before they occur. Our platform offers a variety of frameworks and languages that are fully compliant with industry standards, ensuring that developers can build secure code with confidence.

Exceptional Developer Experience

We understand that engagement and investment are crucial to the success of any training process. That’s why we place great emphasis on creating the ultimate developer experience.

Our bite-sized training sessions fit easily into developers’ demanding schedules, while our fresh and up-to-date content ensures that they’re always learning the most current and relevant information in application security. With our visually stunning interface, developers can enjoy a seamless and engaging learning experience that keeps them motivated and prevents boredom and complacency.
