Hexadite Superhero Spotlight: Lior Ben Porat, Research & Development
This post is the first in an ongoing series about Hexadite’s awesome employees. Interested in working here? Check out our open positions on our careers page.
Lior Ben Porat is a Security Researcher at Hexadite. What does that mean? Well, he finds out what the bad guys are up to by conducting in-depth research into different aspects of the InfoSec world, and then hands over that knowledge to our engineers who then build it into Hexadite AIRS. Essentially, Lior is one of the behind-the-scenes, unsung heroes for our customers—he finds out what nefarious threats are coming down the pike and makes sure it never crosses their path.
Like with all employee profiles, we asked the ultimate hard-hitting question: crunchy or smooth peanut butter? It should please you to know that Lior is staunchly in favor of crunchy peanut butter, putting him firmly on the right side of history.
