ABOUT IERAE SECURITY

As IT becomes in widespread use, risk and awareness of information leaks have risen. And the needs for these services also increase but there are not enough security engineers, so we were founded in 2011 to provide high-quality services in this area.
We want to use our expertise to help society as much as possible, and that idea gave birth to Ierae Security Inc.
Using our proprietary assessment technology we can prevent incidents before they occur, and we work to help provide safe web service use for as many users as possible.
Starting with vulnerability scanning for web apps, which are continuing to grow in demand, we also deliver vulnerability assessment services for iOS and Android apps, which have increased rapidly in popularity in recent years.
