About us

We are passionate about preventing security issues for developers

Gemnasium was built for developers by developers. We help development teams and their companies stay alert to security vulnerabilities that affect their source code and prevent damage before it occurs.

The gemnasium team has formed and operates on the sole premise that if software is left unprotected and out-of-date, user data will be compromised. We have developed Gemnasium to monitor software dependencies, notify users of security updates or advisories and automate source source code updates.

Gemnasium was incorporated in January 2016 in Québec City, Canada after a few years in incubation. We welcomed our first Enterprise customers in June 2017 and we are now featured in these two leading developer marketplaces.
