Keen concentrates their efforts on security research into both mobile and desktop operating system, the applications that run on them, IoT Smart devices and cloud computing.
In the last three years, Keen Security Lab ( Twitter ) has taken the lead in producing research results on both IOT security and mobile security, results that are widely recognized by internet and software vendors along with the global security community.

And, in collaboration with Tencent PC Manager to take the Master of Pwn title in the 2016 Pwn2Own contest. In 2017, Keen Security Lab demonstrated some pretty unique exploits to take the Master of Pwn title.
Keen Lab Jailbreak History:
Keen lab had plans to release a jailbreak tool that would work on iOS 9. This was their first attempt at building a serious jailbreak tool under the name of K33n. Sadly, this was around the time that Apple started to bump up iOS security, and this got in the way of the jailbreak being released.
They also asked well-known teams such as Taig and Pangu to collaborate with them on the release of the jailbreak, but none of them responded with declarations of support. However, K33n team did go on to release a tool called Android PingPong Root, designed for the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Right now, we do not have a working jailbreak that we can use from Keen Security Lab or K33n. There are, however, a number of other tools that you can make use. Be aware that they are limited in use and may not work on your specific device and/or iOS version. For more details on what is available, check out the link below:
If you can’t install a jailbreak on your iOS device at the moment, do not worry. There are plenty of Cydia alternatives available, all of which work on most iOS devices and firmware versions, are very easy to use, taking less than a minute to install on your device, and are fully encrypted for your security.
They all contain a huge number of unofficial apps and games, and a decent selection of Cydia apps that all work without the need to jailbreak first.

Some people will be lucky enough to still be able to jailbreak their devices but, for those that can’t, there are plenty of alternatives to choose from.
