About Us

Since 1994, Matasano researchers have had founding roles in the first security research labs, discovered new classes of vulnerabilities, secured operating systems, and shipped large software projects. We’ve been behind some of the first breaks in SAN technology, virtualization, and financial protocols.

Our work has been featured in Network World, eWeek, Forbes, Macworld, Wired, and the Washington Post, and at conferences ranging from Black Hat to Gartner.

Matasano was founded by some of the most successful security researchers in the field; our work includes “Insertion, Evasion, and Denial Of Service,” which defeated every Intrusion Detection product shipping at the time of its release, and numerous vulnerabilities published in closed-source products. Team member for team member, Matasano offers more practical experience assessing products, applications, and infrastructure than any other services organization.
