Who we are ?

Our expertise combines offensive and defensive security in application protection and helps organisations adopt a new security posture: Force the attackers, not the defender, to adapt constantly. Through our consulting services as well as our software we provide tailored solutions to organisations, helping them protect their assets, sensitive data, and users against increasingly sophisticated attacks.

CEO & Founder: Fred Raynal

Frédéric Raynal graduated in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from ESIEA in 1996. He obtained a PhD in computer science five years later and attended the EGE (School of Economic Warfare) specialised in Economic Intelligence in 2006.

Following his thesis, Fred Raynal created the first IT security magazine in France, MISC (Multi-System & Internet Security Cookbook) which he directed for 12 years as well as the SSTIC Conference (Symposium on the Security of Information and Communication Technologies), one of the most important technical conferences in France. He joined EADS in 2004 where he launched the first Red Team of the group. He then went on to create the “IT security R&D” team at Sogeti / CapGemini.

Eager to find more freedom and agility, Fred Raynal created Quarkslab in 2011. Specialised in application security, Quarkslab is designed as a true lab for experimentation with R&D at the center of its development.

Recognitions

Cybersecurity solutions are many and varied, but not all of them offer the same level of efficiency, robustness and trust. The Security Visas issued by ANSSI (the French National Agency for Security and Information Technology Services) makes it easy to identify the most reliable solutions on the market. ANSSI recognised them only after a thorough evaluation carried out by accredited laboratories.
Quarkslab is part of the list of accredited laboratories. We have been certified by ANSSI to perform security assessments. 
UGAP (Union des groupements d’achat publics) is the only French public central purchasing body. It offers :
– a presentation of the state-owned procurement, 
– advice on the access to the state-owned procurement, 
– an appreciation of the economic model regarding the rules of public sector. 
Quarkslab consulting services and products are available to purchase on the UGAP catalog through a referenced partner.
