🚀 About Escape

Our mission: Make security accessible to everyone

Escape harnesses advanced Artificial Intelligence to pioneer cyber solutions. Our cutting-edge technology automatically identifies contextual security vulnerabilities in cloud-based applications. Our offerings are available through a user-friendly SaaS platform that integrates with engineering and application security teams. Esteemed organizations like Société Générale and Sorare are among the thousands who trust our platform for their cybersecurity needs.

Founded in 2020 by Tristan Kalos (ENSTA & HEC, CEO) and Antoine Carossio (Polytechnique & HEC, CTO), we've quickly ascended as a cybersecurity trailblazer in Europe, bagging esteemed recognitions like the Grand Défi Cyber Prize from ANSSI and BPI i-Nov France2030 support from the French Government. In 2023, we took our mission global by joining the renowned Y Combinator accelerator.

Backed by venture capital and having recently secured a $4M Seed round, we are on an accelerated trajectory to become the global authority in API Security. We're in search of exceptional talent willing to assume significant responsibilities in our rapid international scaling journey. Be the next one!
