Our Research

If the world is run by little ones and zeroes and little bits of data, the Duo Labs team are the mad scientists putting ‘em to work. Not only do we have our customers’ backs by serving up deep knowledge, we’re also dedicated to protecting the public by identifying and fixing vulnerabilities on a broader scale.

You may have heard the stereotype about 400-pound hackers sitting in the warm glow of a monitor in their mom’s basement, but at Duo Labs we get around. Check out the various conferences, meetups and other hangs (which we’ll admit might sometimes happen in basements) where you can connect with us.
