QA Engineering Leader

TriagingX is headquartered in Silicon Valley. Our team successfully created the first generation malware sandbox that is being used by many fortune 500 companies for daily malware analysis. We are targeting one of security’s fundamental challenges by targeting the asymmetric advantage enjoyed by attackers, where they often only need to compromise one weakness, while defenders scramble to prioritize and fix scores of vulnerabilities. We have moved beyond signatures or static IOC’s and instead focus on the attack techniques and anomalies to significantly reduce the time to investigate suspect events in a simple to understand format and often in under 5 mins. Our philosophy is to minimize the security computing load on the endpoint or server, keep core data inside the enterprise and leverage advanced analytics to reduce the time to detect and respond.
