Accuvant Security Experts to Present Technical Research Findings at Black Hat USA 2014 and DEF CON 22

Denver – July 30, 2014 – Accuvant, the authoritative source for enterprise information security, today announced that several of its technical experts will present original research at Black Hat USA 2014 and DEF CON 22. Marc Blanchou, Joshua Drake, Amir Etemadieh, Mathew Solnik and Braden Thomas – all members of the respected Accuvant LABS team – will share their detailed findings on topics ranging from mobile phone vulnerabilities to those found in a myriad of other electronics such as televisions and network cameras. Accuvant’s in-depth, proactive research helps protect vendors, companies, government agencies and the public-at-large against malicious attacks.

“Organizations cannot always solve complex security problems by applying traditional security testing. Sometimes they need to push the envelope, and synthesize new ideas and information,” said Ryan Smith, Accuvant vice president and chief scientist. “Since the best defense is a good offense, our research begins with uncovering new vulnerabilities and attacks. The value of knowing what attacks are possible and having the skills to prevent them enables Accuvant to protect our clients and the industry as a whole.”

Accuvant delivers cutting edge security research to enterprise-level organizations, either as blended engagements alongside traditional assessments, or as standalone research-driven projects such as binary analysis, embedded research, or advanced protocol analysis. The company’s hybrid approach to research allows it to provide services that historically only boutique firms have delivered, with the support of a client-focused delivery organization, a comprehensive suite of additional services and solutions, and a record of executing complex engagements on a global scale.

Accuvant is a Black Hat 2014 Platinum Sponsor, and is exhibiting at booth #635.
