Why do you need Dasharo
There is no secure, high quality and widely compatible BIOS firmware technology solution that OEMs and ODMs can fully own.
- OEMs/ODMs have no control over their own firmware by being provided with closed source solutions of Independent BIOS Vendors (IBV).
- Pricing models are not flexible.
- The source code is not provided with open licenses.
- Testing results are not revealed and by that vendors do not provide any solid proof of the performance or security of their products.
- Software Bill of Materials is not disclosed. IBV does not provide solution details that may reveal components supply chain.
Dasharo provides flexibility within its pricing model:
- standard subscription model
- one-time payment model with OEM/ODM full ownership* for the majority of the components
Dasharo improves firmware supply chain transparency with open solutions for customers by providing:
- source code
- build environment
- build reproducibility
- full information about software components
