Why You've Never Heard of Us

VRL does not advertise. All new business is cultivated via network of existing clients and client contacts. It is therefore essential that each customer is not only satisfied with our results, but that they are also overwhelmed by our knowledge of subject matter, professionalism, and most importantly our customer support.


Our customers place an immense amount of trust in us. They must, as we are often exposed to the inner workings of their business during the course of providing the critical advice they require. Due to this inevitable exposure to customer proprietary data, we hold all business relationships in the strictest of confidence.


Cyber attacks are carried out against corporations every day by a wide range of actors for a variety of purposes. Insiders are stealing intellectual property to sell on the black market; well-funded criminal organizations are stealing customer data to hijack their cash and credit; and increasingly foreign governments with virtually unlimited resources are acquiring sensitive dual-use technology to modernize their defense industrial base.

Operating a business in today's world with an ever-changing vulnerability landscape requires a new paradigm and a new kind of company.

Vulnerability Research Labs' information security products and services are influenced by Sun Tzu's philosophy:

Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril.

VRL recognizes that to defend against a threat, you must first be able to assess your adversary's motivations, intentions, and true capabilities. VRL's unique knowledge of the cyber armament stockpiles of foreign adversaries as well as the distinguishing characteristics of their tradecraft place VRL in a class by itself.

Cyber Threat Intelligence

Vulnerability Research Labs maintains comprehensive cyber threat intelligence on a wide range of actors. The firm is active in monitoring the attack trends of highly sophisticated individuals, organized crime elements, and numerous nation states. This information is a vital aspect of VRL's knowledge superiority doctrine that permeates into customer solutions.

Malware Analysis

By studying samples of captured malware, Vulnerability Research Labs can attempt to determine its intended purpose, its author's relative sophistication, country of origin, and relationship to other previously analyzed malware.

Software/Hardware Vulnerability Research

Vulnerability Research Labs is actively involved in discovering critical vulnerabilities in software and hardware products as an ongoing part of its internal research and development efforts. VRL has teams studying next generation "hacker" tools to discover novel ways to detect their use. The results of this research are shared with customers who have made the commitment to support the firm's long-term research and development initiatives.

Cyber Risk Management

Vulnerability Research Labs' unique insight into the cyber armament stockpiles of foreign adversaries as well as the distinguishing characteristics of their tradecraft place VRL in a unique position to help assess cyber risk.
