After graduating with his Ph.D. in Cybersecurity from the University of Maryland, Danny looked for a company that had a disruptive approach to cybersecurity. His Ph.D. work focused on detecting malicious applications through application control-flow manipulation and machine learning. Through this work, he developed an understanding of how applications should behave. He used his knowledge to pivot from detecting malicious applications to protecting benign ones with the same technology. Danny developed Virsec’s patented application memory protection. Utilizing his academic background in security, he combines theoretical approaches with practical implementation to push Virsec’s product to the top of the security market. Danny is also regular contributor to cyber security publications, specifically when it comes to remote code execution and memory vulnerabilities.
