About Us

Founded in 2013, BinaryMist Ltd (the company behind PurpleTeam-Labs) is a small focussed consultancy specialising in providing Software Engineering and Development Teams with information security knowledge, experience, guidance and tooling to positively shape their DevSecOps culture, processes, practises and build pipelines.

Our aim is to help you shift the expensive process of finding and fixing security defects late in the development cycle (ambulance at the bottom of the cliff) to the cheapest place (as code is being written).

BinaryMist is empowering Software Development shops to not only significantly reduce software defects as they are being created, but also reducing the costs of creating your desired outcomes.

It’s my goal in creating PurpleTeam to bring what was the costly red teaming exercise into parallel with your development (blue team) cycles, not only making this exercise many times cheaper but also automating out much of the mundane security bug hunting and remediation effort.”
