About Binarly

Our Mission

Most binary analysis and software supply chain solutions rely on outdated tools and open-source feeds of vulnerability data. They map file hashes and versions to known CVEs and vulnerabilities similar to legacy antivirus software from the 90s. The pure volume of alerts generated by these solutions creates fatigue and an unmanageable demand for today’s product and security teams.  Changes in software development practices and the growing popularity of AI-generated code assistants will only exacerbate existing challenges.

To address today's risks, we need to adopt a new approach to secure the software supply chain -- this is why we created Binarly.

Vulnerabilities in firmware or the software supply chain can undermine every other security investment.

Binarly’s mission is to create a shift left, focusing on changing the way we detect and respond to the growing number of threats and vulnerabilities at every layer of the supply chain.

Meet the Binarly Team

In 2021, we gathered top program analysts, firmware and software security experts and went back to core principles. We have solved complex security problems and developed highly scalable products for some of the most used systems in the world, including NVIDIA, Intel, Cisco, Cylance and Google.

Together, we launched the industry's first binary risk intelligence platform in 2023. Combining modern static analysis techniques with the latest research, advancements in machine learning and our deep industry expertise, we’re decoding the software supply chain puzzle.
