Vulnerability Research

Digging deeper to seek hard-to-find weaknesses from attacks to confidential data and high-risk applications


Our teams primary focus is to determine, investigate and report vulnerabilities in software, systems and networks. This can include identifying zero-day vulnerabilities, developing proof-of-concept exploit code and working with vendors to develop patches or mitigation strategies.


  • Helps organizations validate their security controls and assess the effectiveness of their vulnerability management programs.
  • Provides guidance and best practices for organizations to secure their systems and networks.
  • Enables clients to identify and address vulnerabilities more comprehensively, quickly, and efficiently, resulting in a more effective and efficient security testing process.


Our team will perform both static and dynamic vulnerability research and can do so across a wide range of environments. Vulnerability research at scale is usually impractical, with that in mind, the team will focus on specific entry points where they and the client believe a problem may occur.

Vulnerability research FAQs

What is vulnerability research?

Vulnerability research is the process of examining a program’s software, hardware or both to understand how it works and to identify security vulnerabilities that could be used to exploit the system.

How is vulnerability research used in cybersecurity?

Vulnerability research is used to uncover hidden or undocumented features and vulnerabilities in software, hardware, and systems. By understanding how a system works, security professionals can identify weaknesses that would allow attackers to gain access or cause damage. Additionally, vulnerability research can help create better defenses against threats by identifying vulnerabilities before they are exploited.

What is the difference between static and dynamic vulnerability research?

Static vulnerability research is the process of analyzing the structure and content of a program or system without actually running it. Dynamic vulnerability research is the process of observing the behavior of a program or system while it is running. Both approaches can be used to uncover hidden features or vulnerabilities in software, hardware, or systems.

What are some examples of how vulnerability research is performed?

Vulnerability research can be done in a variety of ways. Common techniques include code review, debugging, and reverse compilation (also known as decompilation). Additionally, automated tools can be used to identify vulnerabilities and generate code or reports. Depending on the system being examined, manual methods may be necessary to fully understand and uncover any potential problems.
