With the hire, Bright Security has also agreed to acquire We Hack Purple, a training platform founded by Tanya that is dedicated to teaching Application Security, DevSecOps and Cloud Security. We Hack Purple will continue its current operations as part of Bright Security, and will now offer premium paid training courses for free to those who join the We Hack Purple community.

“One of the most important factors in modern application security is ensuring that development teams focus on securing software throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC), rather than after the fact,” said Tanya Janca, Director of Developer Relations at Bright. “Developers need the right tools to create secure software. If we truly want to bring “shift-left” and DevSecOps to life, we need tools that are designed for that purpose. That’s why I joined Bright.”

“We’re very excited to have Tanya join our team,” said Gadi Bashvitz, CEO of Bright. “Tanya’s presence in the application security and developer communities, as well as her experience as an educator, is an invaluable asset to our organization. Bringing Tanya & the We Hack Purple team on board emphasizes our commitment to driving developer awareness and enablement to writing secure applications and APIs. We can’t wait for our extensive developer community to see what she has planned.”
