About

We started DeepFactor with the vision of giving developers the tools they need to ensure that their applications are secure, compliant and performant when they are released to production. Our experience as developers made us realize that developers today simply don’t have the visibility they need to ensure application behavior, security and performance, they are in essence, “runtime blind”.

DeepFactor Pre-production Monitoring is the first solution to deliver this visibility directly to development teams and fills the gap between code validation and production monitoring; completing the continuous monitoring capability and ensuring that every software release is Runtime Ready.
