Presentation: InQuest Startup Origins and Technology Overview - Pedram Amini, CTO - InQuest Labs

Having split his career between offense and defense, serial founder/advisor/investor and InQuest CTO Pedram Amini will cover the history of a now decade old bootstrapped cyber security business. From ideation through initial success and current ambitions… please feel free to bounce startup questions off of him at the end.

He'll also delve into the end-user problem space as well as the technologies InQuest pioneered to address shortcomings in the market. Among others this includes Deep File Inspection (DFI) for real-time protection and "RetroHunting", a novel approach that leverages the power of hindsight to apply today's intelligence to yesterday's data.


Currently serving as InQuest.net CTO, Pedram was formerly a director at Avast, after the acquisition of his startup Jumpshot, a solution for the identification and removal of deeply entrenched malware. Previously, he founded the Zero Day Initiative at TippingPoint, where the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) was invented. At TippingPoint he built and managed the world's largest group of independent researchers. To date the predominant source of all Microsoft vulnerability discoveries. He has historically spent much of his time in the shoes of a reverse engineer, developing automation tools and processes. Pedram has formerly presented and given training courses at Blackhat and numerous other infosec conferences globally. Pedram holds a CS degree from Tulane University and is an author of the book "Fuzzing: Brute Force Vulnerability Discovery".
