About Level Effect
Level Effect, LLC. is a dedicated to closing the cyber security skills gap in the industry by providing hands-on training in networking, systems, web technologies and databases as well as defensive and offensive cyber security.
Our Story
Level Effect was founded by prior members of the U.S. Intelligence Community from within both the U.S. Air Force and National Security Agency. The founders of Level Effect had a shared vision to improve cyber security by combining traditionally separate realms of security: Network Traffic Analysis and Endpoint Detection and Response. Recon, the first network-aware EDR was born. We are happy to report this technology was acquired by Huntress Labs in 2020.

We have continued on our mission of improving the cyber security community by offering introductory through advanced cyber education services using our proprietary cyber learning platform, Foundry™.

Our name comes from a first-principles approach to problem solving. Identifying common variables of a challenge and engineering solutions that are deployed at the right place and at the right time.
