Who We Are

Trenchant’s expertise is the byproduct of the L3Harris acquisition of two highly-regarded information security businesses – Azimuth Security and Linchpin Labs.

Linchpin Labs was founded in 2007 by former intelligence officers with expertise in cross-platform and low-level systems development. Azimuth Security was founded in 2008 by Mark Dowd and John McDonald (co-authors of the industry respected book ‘The Art of Software Security Assessment’) and are an authority in security assessments and in-depth software analysis.

What We Do

Now united under Trenchant, we are a key component of L3Harris’ Intelligence and Cyber Sector.

Our team is composed of experts from across the security research and intelligence communities. We are a trusted, discreet partner furnishing security products, consultancy, training and integration services to allied governments, defense, security and law enforcement agencies.

From our main offices, located in Washington DC, Ottawa, London and Sydney, we are active participants in the global security community, speaking at conferences, publishing whitepapers and discovering vulnerabilities.

Work With Us

We are an elite team of network operators, engineers and vulnerability researchers who are charged with building world-class computer security products. Our culture is defined by intellectual curiosity, camaraderie and a drive to achieve technical superiority. We aggressively pursue those that both share our values and have a demonstrated performance history in our field.

A significant portion of our workforce is purely remote as part of our commitment to maximizing the individual value proposition. Offices in London, Ottawa, Sydney and Washington, DC anchor our physical presence and serve as innovation and support hubs for the international team. We cultivate a collaborative, casual environment and host an annual retreat to share knowledge and evolve our craft. If you share our values and our passion for excellence, please reach out to
