An Insider's view of Red Canary

What's something quirky about your company?

There’s a thing we do at Red Canary called BEASTMODE. On a quarterly basis, everyone comes to Denver and we spend three intense days together.The reason it’s called BEASTMODE is that in the very early days of the company, we’d spend endless hours in a single room, fueled by ample amounts of caffeine, building a company of which we could be proud.

Dave

Director, Customer Success

What projects are you most excited about?

The Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) reached the milestone of 10,000 spec/unit tests to validate our detection logic, an indicator of how diligently we maintain our detectors. Continued validation that everything is working as anticipated is key to ensuring a successful security program.

Joe

VP, Customer Security Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

Providing such an exceptional level of support and care that our customers renew and expand their commitment to partnering with us. I hope that the Red Canary level of post-sale support becomes the model our competitors and partners are chasing.
