Our Work

In the age of networked systems and big data, Shift5 Labs has identified an ever-increasing demand from the military, industry, and commercial services to secure critical OT systems against malicious attack by conducting deliberate investigations.

Cyber Survivability Risk Assessments (CSRA)

CSRAs are in-depth penetration tests that help companies and government agencies assess risk to their OT systems, identify the best risk mitigations, and prevent future malicious cyber activity.

Directed Vulnerability Research

We conduct directed vulnerability and exploit research to improve our slate of defensive products or provide customized products to our customers.

Why Use Shift5 Labs?

Unlike most cybersecurity companies who primarily focus on information technology (IT) systems and packet switched networks, Shift5 Labs is the premier expert in finding vulnerabilities in OT, embedded systems, and associated serial data protocols. We have deep expertise in serial bus protocols that control critical military and industrial systems, such as MIL-STD-1553B, CAN 2.0, J1939, RS-232, ARINC 429, etc.
