SentinelLabs is a top-tier team of security researchers dedicated to discovering and analyzing critical vulnerabilities, attack vectors, malware strains, and threat actors.
"JCDC goes beyond other public-private partnerships, delivering collaborative engagement between the nation's top cyber minds with a focus on planning, action, and mitigation. With exceptional speed, scale and intelligence, our team and technology will play a crucial role in the organization's continued success. We have partnered closely with CISA for years and look forward to continuing that relationship, helping protect the world's most critical assets and information," said Jared Phipps, SVP of Americas Sales and Solution Engineering.
