| Greater Boston Area

Threat Stack enables DevOps and SecOps teams to innovate and scale security by providing full-stack security observability from the control plane up to the application layer. Purpose-built for today’s infrastructure, the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform® and Cloud SecOps Program℠ combine cloud-optimized intrusion defense, continuous security monitoring, and proactive risk assessment to help security and operations teams detect security incidents, achieve compliance, and secure infrastructure in transition.

Threat Stack has recently added Application Security to the platform, empowering developers to build secure, cloud-native applications that can detect and prevent threats at runtime, including applications running on Kubernetes.

Our web application is built in React and Node.js, with a powerful JVM based back-end leveraging several high-scale platforms. We’re looking to expand to additional technologies and toolkits as our data visualization and event processing needs scale.
