Binarly Raises $3.6 Million in Seed Funding

binarlya Los Angeles, CA-based cybersecurity company building technology to address repeatable security failures in the firmware supply chain, raised $3.6M in Seed funding.

The round was led by WestWave Capital and Acrobator Ventures, with participation cybersecurity leaders Michael Sutton, Thomas ‘Halvar Flake’ Dullien, Jamie Butler, Ryan Permeh, Bryson Bort, Pedram Amini, Chris Ueland and David Mandel from Emerging Ventures.

The company intends to use the funds to speed up research and development initiatives, expand its engineering team, and scale enterprise and device manufacturer adoption of its technologies.

Co-founded by security pioneers Alex Matrosov and Claudiu Teodorescu, who previously worked on hardware and software security at NVIDIA, Intel Corp., ESET, BlackBerry, Cylance and FireEye,

Binarly has built a SaaS platform for analyzing, understanding and responding to silent, currently undetectable security threats at the firmware layer. Using a combination of machine learning and deep code inspection at the binary level, the company enables security teams to have real visibility into hardware and firmware failures and a simple way to recover from sophisticated attacks below the operating system.

Binarly also developed its own technology for vulnerability management and protecting the firmware supply chain from repeatable failures. The company’s approach uses semantic properties of the binary code to improve detection accuracy by limiting the number of false positives.

The company worked with security response teams at Insyde, AMI, Lenovo, Dell, HP, HPE, Siemens, Fujitsu, Atos, Intel, AMD and many other vendors to mitigate high-impact security issues across the computing landscape.
