Why Insignary Clarity


Insignary Clarity is a specialized software composition analysis solution that helps customers gain visibility into the binary code they use by identifying known, preventable security vulnerabilities, while also highlighting potential license compliance issues. It uses unique fingerprint-based technology, which works on the binary-level without the need for source code or reverse engineering.

Unlike checksum and hash-based binary code scanners, which are constrained by limited databases of pre-compiled binaries of the most commonly used open source components, Clarity is independent of compile times and CPU architectures. This makes it easy for software developers, value added resellers, systems integrators and security MSPs overseeing software deployments to take proper, preventive action before product delivery.

  • “Equipped with advanced technical strength and professional service support,
    Insignary is the most valuable company we have encountered
    in the field of open source binary management.”
    Adler Wang, CEO of Beijing Maiyue Technology Co., Ltd.
  • “Having been in the Embedded Systems industry for 27 years,
    we at Grape Systems understand the risk of software deliverables
    in binary format. With IoT and connected cars emerging, Clarity
    will have a key role in securing internet connected edges.”
    Akihiko Nakagawa, Managing Director at Grape Systems
  • “By adding Insignary’s binary scanning capabilities to our comprehensive
    FOSS security and compliance portfolio of services, BearingPoint
    will be able to offer the most comprehensive services for increasing FOSS
    security and compliance to our European clients who can
    can enjoy the innovation, scalability, reliability, and other benefits
    of open source software without having to worry about
    the complex processes and tools for managing their software supply chain.”
    Matthias Loebich, Global Leader Production
    Industries at BearingPoint (from November 2017 Press Release)
  • “Clarity is essential - by scanning any binary or external
    module delivered without source code, it helps users avoid
    open source security vulnerabilities and license issues. Since
    implementing Clarity, we have been able to analyze
    and validate open source vulnerabilities in AhnLab
    products with greater confidence.”
    Kangbo Kim, Senior Researcher at AhnLab
