Sqreen Wants To Become The IFTTT Of Web App Security

Sqreen is the first security platform that enables developers to easily protect web apps with the extensible plugin. Its protection ranging is from data protection to user’s protection.
IFTTT stands for If This Then That, is a free web-based service to create chains of simple conditional statements, called applets. An applet is triggered by changes that occur within other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Telegram, Instagram, or Pinterest. It helps your apps and devices work together in new ways.

Sqreen is French startup. To control the security of your web app, it recently launched a Security Hub with dozens of plugins. Sqreen has also participated in TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield and Y Combinator’s current batch. The Sqreen lets you protect your web service with little effort from your side.

Big and developed companies provide you strong security to protect your service. It tries to run attacks to find weaknesses and solve it. Similarly, small companies cannot provide such dedicated service as they lack money and time. But your product is still compromising to SQL injections, XSS attacks, and brute-force attacks.

So to require the Sqreen module in your application, you just simply install a library package on your server and add a couple of lines at the top your source code. After this, Sqreen monitors attacks in real time without a big performance. Now it works for web apps in Node.js, Ruby, PHP, Python or Java.

Sqreen provides security recommendations to protect you against common attacks. So that you can regularly fix vulnerabilities.

Depending on the technologies and frameworks you’re using, Sqreen will recommend plugins for your app. Sqreen is also working on other plugins related to email abuse and payment page protection. Companies like Front, Mindbody, BlaBlaCar, Triplebyte, Toptal, and Algolia are now using Sqreen.
