Save Developer Time

Save Developer Time

This training has a 4.4x ROI on saving developer time. Developers can do these lessons over time at their own pace.

Read More

Accountability with Code Fixes

Developers must correctly fix vulnerable code to pass lessons. To train developers effectively, they need to code.

Read More


Developers can compete, challenge, and earn points in capture the flag style challenges. This further engages developers to learn secure coding practices.

Read More

Certify Developers

Developers earn the HackEDU certification for completion and passing all code patches.

Read More


Meet & manage PCI-DSS, NIST 800-53, SOC, and HIPAA/HITRUST developer training requirements.

Interactive, Hands-On Training

Developers are problem solvers and learn most effectively through hands-on real-world scenarios. Video and PowerPoint lessons don't cut it.

Try out our SQL Injection Demo to get a feel for how the training platform works. No account or setup is required.


Coding and Hacking Challenges

Coding Challenges are labs where software developers practice finding and fixing vulnerabilities in software. Developers have to both find the vulnerability and then securely code in order to pass the challenge. These challenges compliment HackEDU's lessons and can be assigned before or after lessons to ensure that the training concepts are solidified.

HackEDU’s Coding Challenges can also be used as assessments to evaluate the secure coding competency of developers!

Administration Management Dashboard

Why Secure Coding Training?

Why Secure Coding Training?

Vulnerabilities increase the risk of data breaches, financial loss, and in the most extreme circumstances can even cause fatalities. Secure coding training will reduce the risk of these incidents.

Stop Repeat Vulnerabilities

Stop Repeat Vulnerabilities

Training helps stop developers from making repeat vulnerabilities in code. Don't pay bug bounties for the same vulnerability type over and over. End this pattern, save money, and reduce the risk of a security breach via developed software.


How much should I spend on Secure Coding Training?

Wow, really great product! Great learning platform, far and away better than anything out there now.

What I've learned already since signing up for HackEDU has proven priceless in terms of protecting one of our major clients against data theft. This week I've been cleaning up several broken authentication issues on their site using the info I've learned just from the course!

Kevin K., Software Development Company

Exploiting and then fixing the code is great. Hands on and eye opening, love it.

Jason L., Financial Services Company

Really love the fact that you can live patch the application. I really like how easy this makes it to see and understand the problem.
