Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 is proud to announce that four of our researchers were named to the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) “Top 100 Security Researchers List” for 2018.

Palo Alto Networks is a regular contributor to vulnerability research in Microsoft, Adobe, Apple, Android and other ecosystems. By proactively identifying vulnerabilities, developing protections for our customers, and sharing them with Microsoft for patching, we are removing weapons used by attackers that compromise enterprise, government and service provider networks.

Below is the full list of this year’s top 100. To better understand how this recognition is both important and an honor, this posting by Phillip Misner of the MSRC gives you an idea of what’s behind the program.
