We're excited to launch the Community Edition of SnapAttack!Read the Press Release


An elite team of cybersecurity professionals

Our Mission

We're driven to deliver the most comprehensive, usable threat prevention capabilities to our customers.

To help organizations anticipate and defend against attacks before they happen, using our real-world understanding of how hackers think.

Our Heritage

We're proud of where we came from, and excited about where we're going.

SnapAttack was developed by Booz Allen's Dark Labs — an elite team of security researchers, threat hunters, penetration testers, reverse engineers, network analysts, and data scientists. They're dedicated to stopping cyberattacks before they occur, using their years of experience in commercial and nation-state-level cyber operations.

In 2021, SnapAttack was established as a standalone company. This move empowered our team to rapidly evolve the platform, focus on proactive threat hunting, detection as code, and purple teaming — all in one integrated platform.

Our Beliefs

We think differently than others, and we use that to our advantage. Hackers never stop learning and trying new attacks – and we don't either. Because that's what it takes to stop hackers and protect your organization.

On Community: We believe cyber defenders are stronger together. Why should hunters have to generate analytics on their own, when someone on the blue team already has? Why do red teams and blue teams operate competitively, rather than cooperatively? Working together and sharing intel is the only way to outthink our adversaries.

On Data: Quality data is critical. Our ever-growing library has over 1,200 validated and tagged analytics across 1,000+ threats. Defenders can be confident our crowd-sourced data has both the coverage and robustness to find and prevent the most advanced threats — without being overwhelmed by false positives.

On Workflow: Far too many security tools are point solutions requiring context switching and stitched together processes. We believe the processes of prioritizing and understanding threats should be tightly coupled with the ability to directly hunt for known behaviors, deploy true positives, validate controls, and expedite incident response.

On Integration: We believe tools should be security stack agnostic and able to meet organizations where they are, rather than forcing them to create complex workarounds. SnapAttack's ever maturing ecosystem of supported technologies and data formats means we can bring our analytics to your organization seamlessly.

On Customers: We believe our customers and community members are also our partners. We value your feedback, and welcome suggestions for improvements and new capabilities. Our goal is to exceed your expectations of our product and our team.
