Microsoft acquires ReFirm Labs to enhance IoT security


Microsoft acquires ReFirm Labs to enrich our firmware analysis and security capabilities across devices that form the intelligent edge, from servers to IoT.

The addition of ReFirm Labs to Microsoft will bring both world-class expertise in firmware security and the Centrifuge firmware platform to enhance Microsoft’s ability to analyze and help protect firmware backed by the power and speed of Microsoft’s cloud.

ReFirm are the authors of the well-respected Binwalk open-source software, which has been used to analyze thousands of device types for firmware security issues, uncovering unpatched common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs), insecure secrets, and a multitude of other security problems in plugin IoT devices and embedded firmware.

ReFirm’s firmware analysis technology will advance Microsoft’s existing capabilities to help secure IoT and OT devices via Azure Defender for IoT which was recently enhanced with technology from Microsoft’s acquisition of CyberX.
