From academia to innovation: Coana's SCA focuses on reachable vulnerabilities, shaped by our strong academic foundation.
Number of engineers
At Coana, we are building an SCA (Software Composition Analysis) with built-in reachability analysis. Unlike conventional SCAs, Coana's SCA lets you focus on the actual reachable vulnerabilities in your dependency code and ignore the unreachable vulnerabilities. Since most vulnerabilities are unreachable in most applications, the burden of managing vulnerabilities is typically reduced 80-95% when using Coana. The reachability analysis used by Coana is based on static call graph analysis (learn more about it in the blog post what is SCA with reachability). It's no coincidence that the founders of Coana ended up building a company with static analysis at its core. In this post, we'll dive into the background of the Coana team and look at the history that led to the formation of the company.
To complement the deep technical knowledge of the three academic co-founders, a fourth co-founder, Anders Søndergaard, joined Coana as CEO when the company was formally founded. As an experienced founder and previous CEO of a technical startup, Søndergaard is particularly well-suited to lead Coana.
Today, Coana remains well-connected to its academic roots, with Møller's position as head of one of the world's leading static analysis research groups and two of Coana's first hires coming from either Møller's research group or one of its sister groups. This strong connection to academia is fundamental to building a company like Coana. Static analysis remains an unusually challenging type of technology to develop, making this close connection to the world's leading talent essential.
