About CodeShield

We minimize the effort for developers to find and fix security vulnerabilities in open source software and make software more secure. After years of research, we founded CodeShield in spring 2020 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.
