Blackhat Logo
An internationally recognized cybersecurity event series

Starting as fans, attendees, trainees, and later evolving to… speakers, trainers, and authors… We've been making the annual hacker pilgrimage to Las Vegas for Blackhat and Defcon for nearly two decades. It's a genuinely exciting time. Reunite with friends and colleagues from all over the world, some you may see only once a year.

Participate in a CTF contest. Enjoy all the fruits humanity has to offer in a decadent town. Catch the greatest research of the year… most save their best for Blackhat. Spend the night up hacking with a colleague. Absorb a deluge of marketing and swag. Indulge in endless choices of back-to-back corporate sponsored gatherings... the list goes on and the options iterate annually.

The year-over-year growth has been astounding. Most evident in the lunchroom during the briefings. The industry has exploded in size and continues to grow at bullish rates.

If you're curious to hear what we've been up to, schedule some time to chat. Coffee, cocktails, or a sit-down briefing... we look forward to catching up with everyone.

We're proud to announce that we're hosting a gathering this year in conjunction with some of our partners:

Prevent data leakage, discover advanced breaches, hunt for unseen threats.

Founded in 2013 by a well-versed team hailing from both the public and private sectors. Our platform is purpose-built by SOC analysts for SOC analysts and network defenders. With capabilities in attack prevention, breach detection, threat hunting, data leakage discovery, and more. We've automated much of the typically mundane tasks of the SOC analyst. Resulting in analyst level scrutiny at multi-gigabit speeds, all the while reducing frustration, and in-turn, allowing precious human time to be spent where it matters.

Turnkey Appliances

InQuest™ appliances are tailored for throughput rates ranging through 100Mb - 40Gb. The entire fleet is contained within a 1U chassis and priced competitively, in no small part thanks to the ingenuity in design. We excel as equally with content-analysis as we do with data-capture. Our patented Deep File Inspection (DFI™) engine, picks up where other solutions leave off, diving deep into the recursive nature of the threats typically seen today. Capable of decompressing, decoding, deobfuscating, and decompiling. Our DFI™ engine unravels any nested malware, at wire speed rates of ingestion.

Threat Intelligence

Threat Intelligence empowers our solutions and all of our products are regularly updated with the latest threat intelligence information from InQuest Labs to ensure our customers have emerging threat coverage. Our team works with real-world, high profile networks on a daily basis and draws influences from actual attacks to publish threat hunting signatures and intelligence. Our intel is 80% self-sourced and our platform is 100% open. Write YARA compatible signatures that benefit from 50 additional contextual variables. Metadata, executable logic, semantics… meticulously curated and normalized to ease the burdens of prevention, detection, and hunting.

Integrated Cloud Email Security (ICES)

Our Integrated Cloud Email Security (ICES) solution, leveraging our patented Deep File Inspection (DFI), goes to unparalleled levels of scrutiny to analyze, identify, and ultimately prevent business email compromise (BEC), malware, phishing, ransomware, spam, and scams from being delivered to your users.

Play Nice with Others

It's among our mantra that "there is no silver bullet". A blend of solutions is required to remain effective at detection and prevention. InQuest™ integrates with a number of complementary solutions. InQuest™ captures and inspects file artifacts from data-at-rest, data-in-motion, and data-in-use. Files can be then be fed in parallel to a multitude of integration points:

In Conclusion

InQuest™ integrations are active. Active in the sense that just as an analyst would, we both send data to and digest results from these complementary vendors. An additional layer of logic interprets these results in conjunction with InQuest's™ heuristics, alerts, reputation information, and machine learning predictions. The final result is a single, digestible threat score with a detailed threat receipt highlighting the indicators responsible for reaching that conclusion... and we've barely scratched the surface. If you're curious to hear more, schedule time to connect with the founders directly.
