On 2 July, the Cryptosense startup project, an Inria-led spin-off from the Prosecco research team, was awarded a prize by OSEO and the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research at the 15th national competition to support the creation of innovative technology firms.
The prize received was in the "Creation and Development" category, which rewards candidates that have already proven the viability of their project.

Cryptosense software finds and helps to fix security vulnerabilities caused by errors in the use of cryptography. Founded in Paris in 2013 as an INRIA Prosecco spin-off, during this talk I will explain how the project evolved from a pure research idea that attracted industry interest to a growing company with clients in financial services and government across Europe and North America. In particular I’ll focus on the differences between our original research prototype and the product we sell now, and what I see as the differences between running research projects as a « chargé de recherche » and running a start-up.
In the press
“SET a thief to catch a thief.” Security-conscious companies, from banks to newspapers, often hire, if not thieves, then the analogues of thieves, to test their computer systems for weaknesses. These professional hackers, called penetration testers, poke and prod at their clients’ systems. If they find a way in, they inform the client, who can then fix the problem. Penetration testing, though, is expensive—for the skills required to be a good tester are rare. That is why a French firm called Cryptosense is hoping to automate the job.
