Efficient, Value-Driven Security

At Bounce Security, we care about doing security the right way.
For us, that means focusing on protecting what really matters. Instead of wasting your limited resources on generic, so-called “best practices”, draining your developers’ cycles or squandering budget on expensive and ineffective consultants.

That is why we’ve developed our “Value Driven Security” approach, to save you time and money, and to enable a more efficient security process.
“Value-Driven Security” is a much better fit than common purist approaches, for modern development teams looking to design and implement security features in their software, without disrupting their natural flow.
Having strong technical background and an intelligent risk analysis framework in place not only helps discover security risks, but also allows us to make pragmatic decisions and recommend against spending on risks that do not affect your bottom line.


Bounce Security was founded by Avi Douglen, a leading security professional with decades of experience.

Bounce Security consults on software security to development teams of all sizes, working with them to integrate security practices into their process. We’ve worked with some of the biggest organizations on their application security, as well as small startups. We prefer to work directly with development teams, often providing training on secure coding and other security topics. Software security, development processes, identity architecture, and access management are our specialties.

We bring this technical expertise to your table and merge it with a business perspective to ensure you get the maximum bang for your security buck.
