On Bright Data, Arik uncovered both cyber adversaries'. He led investigations against high-profile proxy users that misused Bright Data's global residential proxy network to initiate mass-scale DDoS and bot attacks. In 2021, he moved from inspecting the attack logs from the attacker's view to inspecting the attack from the defender's point of view in human security (formal art PerimeterX), where he leveraged multiple hacker identities he developed over the years to hunt cyber threat intelligence on application hackers.
