The 3Eyes advantage

Many cyber security challenges have a strong technology component, either in their origins (such as attacks, vulnerabilities or IT availability) or their solution (such as automation, detection). When dealing with them, it’s critically important to understand tech. This avoids pitfalls such as snake-oil, wrong solution approaches, business driver disconnects, and over-engineering. A tech heart is critical in solving problems, especially on a strategic or tactical level. 3Eyes has extensive experience with attacks and tech, a rock solid foundation to build your solutions on.

When solving problems, many turn to "deductive reasoning": based on the input, there is a logical, singular solution. There's a pitfall: one solution is often insufficient; like a goalkeeper guarding the upper right corner. Designers are trained to find as many solutions as possible, no matter how unlikely. Armed with dozens of candidates, they will then select the best solutions based on business drivers and prerequisites. This "reductive process" ensures that gaps are covered early on. 3Eyes prides itself on their design mindset, in order to counter the out-of-the-box “hacker mindset” adversaries have.

Often technical implementations lose their connection to business requirements. The only way to be successful is to keep them "front-and-center". This requires a firm understanding of business outcomes and diligence in supporting business objectives. 3Eyes has the business drive to formulate goals on a board level and build bridges all the way to the tech implementation.
