Billy was the lead researcher at the web security software company SPI Dynamics, where he developed and automated patented techniques to exploit web vulnerabilities, and spoke extensively at conferences such as BlackHat and RSA about his findings. Following SPI’s acquisition by Hewlett-Packard in 2007, Billy managed HP’s web security research group. Billy founded the web performance company Zoompf in late 2009 where he developed the industry’s first site-wide performance analysis product which tells you the root-cause of your performance issues.
