About us

We're a paradigm shifting company helping pioneer Security-as-Code

Waratek Team in Kilkenny, Ireland

What we do

At Waratek, we believe security should be scalable, and we're helping organizations achieve that with control through policy. Our Security-as-Code suite protects applications at scale for enterprises around the world.

As the leader in the next significant shift toward proactive security platforms, organizations of all sizes rely on our solutions to prescriptively secure their business-critical applications to deliver financial services, supply chain management, and communications and entertainment platforms.

We're building a unique application and API security company with a different approach. Rather than focusing on lagging indicators like network traffic and regex, we fix vulnerabilities in the code while your applications run. Security professionals and developers love our solutions for the low friction and ease of scalability.

Who we are

We are a growing team who are deeply passionate about our work and the difference we make for our customers and community.

With an original focus on effecting changes in compilers to improve the efficiency of applications, we soon realized that we could do the same thing from a security perspective. In fact, the ability to apply declarative policies at runtime resulted in better protection and Security-as-Code was born.

This is the foundation of our viewpoint that shifts from more traditional approaches to securing applications.
