I had the privilege to join Perfecto Technologies in its early days (1997), and observe its ascent and demise. Perfecto (later renamed into Sanctum) was a very innovative Israeli startup – the pioneer of commercial web application solutions. Sanctum produced the first WAF and the first web application vulnerability scanner. In this speech I want to cover the early (and less known) history of Sanctum/Perfecto, how it was intertwined with the early history of web application security (and market), and what lessons I learned from this experience – both about conducting research in an immature area, and about the fate of a security company in an immature market.
