We’re excited to share the news that ReFirm Labs has been acquired by Microsoft! You can read Microsoft’s announcement here.
We have been laser focused on improving the security of connected devices. It all started when our team created the Binwalk Open Source project 10 years ago. Then came the launch of ReFirm Labs in 2017 followed by the release of Binwalk Enterprise. Our mission has been to help our customers improve the cybersecurity of the products they build and those that they buy.
Vulnerabilities in network, IoT and Edge devices are a significant and growing risk to enterprise and consumer security. As we worked with Microsoft it became clear that they shared the same vision and urgency around IoT Security with a comprehensive suite of solutions such as Azure IoT Defender, Azure Sentinel, and devices such as Edge Secured-core and Azure Sphere, to name a few. The Binwalk suite will add to Microsoft’s strategy to be the best in class solution for addressing IoT security challenges.
We want to thank our customers, partners, employees, and investors for their trust and dedication to ReFirm over the past few years. We are excited to take Binwalk to the next level as part of Microsoft and can’t wait for you to see all the great things we will build together!
