Our Vision

We believe that developing and securing cloud native applications should be easy, fun and engaging. Instead of being a pain and getting in the way of “more important” tasks, security should be effortless but omnipresent.

With CodeShield we want to give developers a tool that allows exactly that, so that developers can focus on the tasks they love — developing awesome features.


We started our careers as researchers in the field of program analysis for vulnerability discovery. In Spring 2020, we decided that our research should have an impact on the way modern software systems are built, and founded CodeShield as a spin-off of the University of Paderborn and the Fraunhofer Institute for Design Technology Mechatronics IEM. Our technology has received several awards, including the German IT-Security Award 2016 and the Ernst Denert Software Engineering Award 2019.
