ProvenRun, winner of the Innovative SME Award – FIC 2017

Organized jointly by the National Gendarmerie, CEIS and EuraTechnologies, and co-financed by the Regional Council of Hauts de France, the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC), helped by a jury of experts, awards the Innovative SME Award every year to a particularly innovative company in the cybersecurity sector. Sponsored by Airbus Defense and Space, the Innovative SME Award will be presented to ProvenRun at the 9th edition of the FIC.

This award distinguishes the innovation brought by ProvenCore, ProvenRun’s next generation of ultra secure OS that must be used to protect connected systems against remote attacks.

ProvenCore’s primary goal is to offer proven protection of security-critical services (boot, authentication, update) almost transparently to the software used on the connected system. The security properties of ProvenCore have been formally proven, down to generated code. This allows being as close as possible to “zero-bugs” and therefore highly resistant to attacks.

With ProvenCore, chip makers, devices makers and solution developers can rely on a scalable secured-by-design platform for all ARM® Cortex®-A and Cortex-M based devices.

“The innovation, energy and agility of innovative start-ups and SMEs in the cyber domain is spectacular,” explains François Lavaste, president of the jury and CEO of Airbus Defense and Space CyberSecurity. “This 2017 edition is particularly rich in innovation. In addition, the quality of the applications is exceptional. All this shows a very positive evolution of the whole ecosystem.”

“Recognition and trust are essential within the cybersecurity industry. The recognition granted to us by the prestigious FIC 2017 jury with this Innovative SME Award is a tremendous encouragement for all the customers who already trust us,” concluded Dominique Bolignano, President and Founder of ProvenRun.

About the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC)

The FIC adopts an approach consisting of assessment and exchange with the aim of promoting a European vision of cybersecurity, the continuation of a single digital market and the regulatory proposal on the protection of personal data.

The FIC is the key European cybersecurity event that gathers all players in the digital trust chain. To coordinate this approach, the FIC relies on:

  • The tradeshow, to communicate, increase visibility, recruit, make new contacts & keep in touch with old ones,
  • The forum, to exchange with experts, improve skills and share feedback,
  • The Observatory to continue exchanging during the rest of the year, develop on themes covered and keep the network alive.

The 2017 edition of the FIC is jointly organized by the National Gendarmerie, CEIS and EuraTechnologies, and co-financed by the Regional Council of Hauts-de-France.
