About Us

Leading the Pack in Offensive Security.

We've been in the offensive security space for almost two decades and are proud to be home to the innovators, engineers, and exploit writers behind some of the most popular security tools and research out there.

Step Inside the Fox Den

Security isn’t just a job to us. We do this because we love it. And because we're committed to the common good.

We care about security because it’s in our DNA. We support the security and research communities because we belong to them. And we invest in research to stay ahead of emerging threats and new attack vectors because we believe in helping the good guys stay a step ahead. Regardless of whether you work with us, we believe everyone deserves to be secure online and this mission drives us to do better every day, to never stop learning, and to always be innovating.

Breaches aren't inevitable

We believe the best way to manage risk is adopting a forward defense philosophy — focusing on prevention, not reaction.

We focus on offensive security because we believe that the best way to secure modern organizations is by subjecting their networks and applications to the same attacks they see in the real world. Because it’s not just one vulnerability that leads to a breach now, it’s an attacker with the skill, patience, and desire to chain several vulnerabilities together into a working exploit. Understanding your exposure is not as simple as running a tool or meeting a requirement.

For too long, enterprises have been told that breaches are inevitable and part of the cost of doing business. It’s why the industry has focused on reacting to intrusions after they’ve happened, instead of preventing them in the first place. We believe there's a better way. Our solutions are designed to uncover your exposures before they are exploited.

Commander of United States Cyber Command

We must “defend forward” in cyberspace, as we do in the physical domains. Our naval forces do not defend by staying in port, and our airpower does not remain at airfields. They patrol the seas and skies to ensure they are positioned to defend our country before our borders are crossed. The same logic applies in cyberspace.
