Black Hat 2015 - Recap

August 10, 2015 | Javvad Malik


Day 2 of Black Hat started off slowly as many attendees were undoubtedly suffering the ill effects of attending one of the many late-night parties that were held the night before. But with some sleep and sufficient amounts of caffeine, the booth was buzzing again with energy.

Open Threat Exchange remained one of the most popular discussion points and Andy Manoske was also interviewed by Sara Peters of Dark Reading to discuss threat intelligence and sharing.


We were fortunate to be visited by many people, some intrigued by our booth design and others drawn by our technology. It was also great to meet some existing customers and hear how they were using our products and what we could do to better serve them.

Even Jayson Street turned up and delivered one of his infamous awkward hugs on our very own Kate Brew.


We also announced the winner of our drone competition which went to Alexander Victor.


With that, Black Hat 2015 is in the books and a hazy memory. Although unfortunately, what happens in Vegas follows you home on social media!
