 “Black Hat 2014 has been the first opportunity for AXON Ghost Sentinel to interact with the cyber security community at large since our launch through Mach37. We are excited about the positive responses we received from potential customers and collaborators. Our observation of the competitive landscape for AGS’s forthcoming products gives us great confidence in the future of our company. We are looking forward to many future Black Hat events." - Dr. Sven Brueckner

Black Hat is the most technical and relevant global information security event series in the world. Several thousand people attended Black Hat and DEFCON along with many other co-located events, making it the prime opportunity for AGS to interact with potential funders, partners, competitors, and future employees as well as with representatives of various media outlets. At Black hat, AGS members visited the business lobby where they saw first hand how AGS technology can integrate with existing providers to provide much-needed lightweight endpoint security and intelligent threat detection for mobile devices. At DEFCON, AGS members attended talks concerning security for smart cars, hotel rooms, and medical devices, which highlighted the need for AGS technology to secure the Internet-of-Things.
