At DEF CON 24, a conversation about how to bring better high-end tools for security professionals led to the founding of Shackle Labs – a company dedicated to bringing useful tools and services to professionals that demand more. There are many sources for simple tools that sometimes work, or companies selling little more than snake oil; Shackle Labs was created to provide tools that are highly effective.

In January of 2017, Shackle Labs was officially launched.
