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.

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

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