Alsid is the answer to cyber-attacks that strike companies continuously.

Founded in June 2016 by two former members of the ANSSI, experts in large-scale cyberdefense operations, Alsid redefines the way companies protect themselves from modern threats. We developed a real-time monitoring technology able to oversee the security of large-scale Active Directory infrastructures to protect them from cyberattacks.

We are experiencing a fast growth and we already count multiple Fortune 2000 companies in our portfolio. We will conquer a large part of the French market, but also expand out of our borders to gain an international market share.

Join Alsid and you will be part of a start-up on track to become an international leader in cyberdefense.
