Dr. Davide Bove

Security Expert · Software Engineer

I build secure software and help others to do so. I also like to break stuff and learn how things work.

Find out what I can do for you below, or check my blog if you are interested in IT and security topics.

Security Services

Security Audit

Assess the security of your products and network and find vulnerabilities in your web application, Android app or in a third party software you use in your business.

Penetration Test

Simulate a realistic attack on your enterprise infrastructure, web application, mobile app and internal security policies.

Security Training

Receive training for your employees and co-workers on hacking techniques and countermeasures. I also offer talks on different technical topics.


Add an experienced advisor to your organization or project and implement robust security architectures, perform vulnerability tests, risk analyses and security assessments.
