About Us

At Cipher Tech Solutions, Inc. (Cipher Tech), we take great pride in supporting some of the most mission critical work in the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community. The majority of our company is comprised of extremely talented software developers who write production tools which directly support one of two missions; digital forensics and malware reverse engineering.

Digital forensics is the practice of extracting evidence from computers, phones, tablets, cameras, thumb-drives, and just about any other form of digital media. The results of our work are then used to support federal and military law enforcement, counter intelligence, and counter terrorist activities.

Malware Reverse engineering is the practice of analyzing extremely advanced malicious code. The goal of a reverse engineer is to understand how the malicious code is working and determine things like: how did it infect the victims computer, what kind of information it is seeking to steal, how it's communicating with the author (actor), and who that actor might be.
