About us

We want to build a world in which the complex software that connects our businesses and societies is safe, secure, and trustworthy.

Our automated analysis and correction tools eliminate bugs and vulnerabilities in complex digital systems, to prevent damaging failures, losses, and injuries.

We protect organizations from the financial, reputational, and customer risks of software failures in our increasingly complex and interconnected world.

Our Values

Reliability

Do you trust the software around you? Do your customers? Every day, we all experience software that doesn’t do what it’s supposed to. Most bugs are merely annoying but a few, unseen and unknown, will trigger devastating losses.

Our core focus is assuring that software-based systems can be trusted. Everything we do—from business relationships, to operational processes, to products and research—is aimed at making software trustworthy.

Partnership

We know the limits of our expertise and the value of proprietary knowledge. We work in partnership with our customers to assure the quality of their systems in ways that deliver absolute respect and protection for their privacy and intellectual property.

Precision

We develop technologies that identify and correct software problems with industry-leading quality, accuracy, and precision. We are obsessive about finding all the problems, and only true problems, in your systems.

We think deeply, plan meticulously and build accurately to ensure that our products work effortlessly and flawlessly to reveal and fix bugs.

Our vision

We want to build a world of software we all can trust, in which intelligent support systems make software failure a thing of the past.

Our mission

We are building the most precise bug detection and correction software in the industry, combining decades of experience in research and software engineering with a new wave of deep static analysis augmented by artificial intelligence.
