TrueFly Labs

TrueFly Labs was designed by Inceptus to keep our customers ahead of the latest security threats. Utilizing our wide global footprint it offers us insight into the latest security threats that our customers are facing and gives us unparalleled threat intelligence. This coupled with our security breach investigations, malware reverse-engineering projects, APT Hunts, millions of scans, and thousands of penetration tests it gives our customers the most up to date information about the methods, operations and motivations (MOMs),  tools, techniques and procedures (TTPs) and Adevanced Evasion technoiques (AETs) that our adversaries are using.  

What the Heck is a TrueFly?

Forensic Entomologists use True Flies to determine the time of death at a crime scene. 

Usually the first insect on scene, the TrueFly emerges to lay their larvae. As gruesome as this sounds, we found some synergies between the TrueFly and the goal of TrueFly Labs; 

Be first on scene and find the threats before they happen.

Yeah, we know it's a stretch but it's a really cool name...
