Dr. Chase Cunningham (aka Dr. Zero Trust) demonstrates how he leverages the power of the HyperQube platform to create as many virtual environments needed to do anything from malware research and product demos to POC’s and architecture design – and everything in between.
“The HyperQube platform is a super simple way for the purposes of building infrastructure and sharing it with people. This is it! You don’t have to be a power user, you don’t have to know how to do networking, you don’t have to know how to do configuration. You can fire this up, use it, share it.” – Dr. Chase Cunningham.
