Whitepaper

Custom security research and analysis of attack surface and technical mitigations enables our customers to go beyond the constant cycle of finding security issues in their software or infrastructure.
One such example is the Browser Whitepaper that X41 created for Google. X41 covers the differences in security design, implementation and user interface of the Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer browsers.
