Cybersecurity, privacy, Intellectual Property protection, and compliance have all taken center stage in today’s economy. While many organizations are racing to reorient themselves to this “new normal,” a select group of professionals have been focused on managing application development risk for decades (literally).

With the launch of Visual Studio 2017, the first wave of .NET developers are hitting their 15th anniversary. PreEmptive Solutions is proud to have supported many of these pioneering developers and their organizations to secure their most valuable work.

As we hope everyone would agree, these organizations are all visionaries who have helped to establish the best development risk management and application security practices that we all rely upon today.

In this spirit, we’re recognizing one organization per day on their 15th (or 10th) Dotfuscator registration anniversary. We will tweet using the hashtag #WorthProtecting and #15yrs2day (or #10yrs2day). Follow us on Twitter.

No spoilers here – follow us on twitter and bookmark this page and come back next Tuesday for the latest honor roll of application risk management pioneers.
