We walk the talk, our customers back us up.
We can offer fixed price projects.
We provide 24/7 access to our consultant.
We are used to working in multiple time zones.
If you are looking to increase the productivity of your development team(s) or establish a security focus, BinaryMist is your obvious choice.
We understand how to architect, engineer and deliver:
software, devops and security solutions
that exceed our clients expectations.
At BinaryMist one of the reasons we decided to take the initiative and use our years of experience to help clients,
was in reaction to how we saw technology organisations treating their clients and the lack of understanding
of what high performing development teams need to deliver healthy working software with minimum technical debt
on time and generally under time.
We are committed to developing skills and relationships over money and elaborate careers.
We believe that developers are very intelligent people that are quite capable of managing themselves and their teams. Experience has led us to believe that we are best to empower them and provide the resources they need to deliver what the client needs.
Let us show you how quality and speed of deliverycan be achieved at very modest prices. Especially early in the product life-cycle.- Kim Carter -

What's currently going on @ BinaryMist
During this workshop we looked at tried and tested practices and processes for reducing security defects early. Kim uncoverd how to identify the lowest hanging fruit (for the attackers) by taking a holistic approach (a 30,000′ view), then honing in on the areas with the highest security ratings, based on a tried and tested threat modelling process.
We looked at automating (Security Test (Behaviour) Driven Development (STDD/SBDD)) some of the traditional manual based penetration testing methods often performed after go live and bringing them forward into parallel with your development cycles (Sprints).
Plust lots more.

I've met Kim at DevSecCon Singapore in 2017 where he gave a well-received workshop.
A few months later we had a project where his top-notch Node.js security code review skills were required
and this gave us the chance to work together closely.
Over a 2 week period he was doing security code reviews of containerized Node.js microservices in a very thorough way. We communicated well and progressed quickly. Kim has a very broad yet deep understanding of modern application security that comes from years of experience.
I can recommend Kim to anyone who needs an application security expert and wants a professional second opinion on the security posture of an application.

2 words to describe Kim – mystery & legend.
Mystery – Kim is deep & smart. He sees things differently, from several angles & is full of ideas. You never know what he will suggest, and will be surprised with how he tackles issues with the solutions that he has.
Legend – Throw anything to him, no matter how twisted and broken they are, and Kim will sort them out, with quality. He is keen to improve things & build people up technically. Sorry I lied, there’s a 3rd one.
Passion – The silent driver in Kim. Self-motivated, self-organised & a wonderful team player. Kim would do everything he could in order to achieve. I’ll want him in my team any day!
