Vulnerability Research &
Software Development

It's in our name.     Vulnerability Research Labs is actively involved in discovering critical vulnerabilities in software and hardware products as an ongoing part of its research and development efforts. This research allows us to better understand, leverage, and reinforce operating system and application security.

Using knowledge gained from our innovative research, VRL has developed products ranging from secure mobile communications solutions to endpoint detection tools that bolster the cyber hunting capabilities of our customers.


Threat Analysis

VRL teams reverse engineer threat vectors to better understand the current exploitation, hiding, and evasion methods of samples found in the wild. By studying a wide array of sophisticated threats we can attempt to determine their intended purpose, author's skill level, country of origin, and/or relationship to other previously analyzed malware and leverage this to our customers’ advantage.


Security Evaluation

We help our customers defend their IT infrastructure by taking an offensive mindset and discovering ways to gain unauthorized access to the network. Our experienced penetration testers and system administrators will determine whether a company's security plans and posture can withstand a sophisticated attack.

We work with our customers to determine the level of risk they are willing to take, and we use that assessment to build the best tool for their environment.
