Washington D.C.
Helping organizations around the world secure their software supply chains and achieve new visibility into the technology they build and buy.

Our Mission


Software is the only thing we buy without having any idea what’s inside of it.
Manifest is a venture-backed cybersecurity startup, helping organizations around the world reduce their supply chain risk, and build/buy more secure software. We are a first-mover and leader in the software supply chain space, specifically around how organizations generate and operationalize software bills of material (SBOM).
We help:
Vulnerability analysts/SOC teams identify and respond to software vulnerabilities hidden in their supply chain. With Manifest, the 12-week hair-on-fire Log4j response could have been shortened to minutes, and repeated for the next major supply chain vulnerability.
Product/Application Security teams easily generate and manage SBOMs, and quickly reply to SBOM requests.
Governance, Risk, and Compliance teams streamline the process of evaluating and buying new tech (from printers to apps to medical devices), giving them more quantitative data to answer the question: “How risky is this asset we want to purchase?”
