Cryptosense was founded in 2013 as an academic spin-off of INRIA and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. We’re based in downtown Paris. Our seed funding round was lead by Elaia Partners, one of the best-known VC firms in Paris.
Our mission: to fix the world’s broken cryptography.
With the emergence of technologies such as mobile, cloud, Internet of Things and blockchain, companies are relying more and more on cryptography as a risk control for authorising operations and protecting sensitive data. Modern cryptography is powerful, but also fragile and complex to deploy. In practice, it is often breakable, leading to serious security issues.
Why? Because deploying crypto securely is hard.
Using crypto securely is more complex than choosing the right crypto algorithms. It requires secure implementations, secure APIs, secure use by applications, secure key-management, secure randomness generation, and secure protocols. Expertise in these areas is rare and expensive.
Cryptosense software detects these kinds of problems and shows you how to fix them.
