Why InQuest?

Our People and Philosophy

  • Hailing from both the public and the private sectors, we offer a network-based security solution on-prem or in the cloud capable of ingesting both data-in-motion and data-at-rest.
  • For nearly two decades, we have contemplated information security from different perspectives...

    • ...defensive perspective while leading the Pentagon’s Computer Incident Response Team (PENTCIRT).
    • ...offensive perspective while leading TippingPoint’s ZDI and iDEFENSE’s VCP.
  • Hands-on expertise with a wide range of intrusion prevention, detection, analysis, and monitoring solutions. We continuously explore, examine, and validate security vendors.
  • Community involvement including contributions by way of talks, publications, open-source software, and researcher collaboration. Constant analysis of attacker techniques and trends.
