About Me

Who Am I?

I'm Matteo Pedersoli and I graduated at University of Milan - Italy, in 2018. I started working while I was still at university as system engineer in a medium-large company focusing on enterprise systems such as IAM, service manager, backup, security endpoint management, server management. Over time by moving to larger companies I have vertically enhanced my knowledge in specific security products, such as PAM, MFA, database protection, SOAR.

I divide my free time between the gym, which helps me to free my mind and structure my life in a rigorous way, and exploring the technological innovations in the IT field. I also enjoy facing online challenges designed to find exploits in purpose-built systems.
