Date of creation: 2020
Workforce: 14 employees
Headquarters: Campagne (Hérault)
Bfore.ai is committed to fighting cybercrime. This company, founded in 2020 in Campagne (Hérault), has developed two innovative predictive solutions, both subscription-based. One, PreCrime Network, is designed for corporate networks. The other, PreCrime Brand, is designed for registered brands.
To do this, the company has developed technologies protected by four patents, based on the use of Artificial Intelligence and behavioural analysis. « Our tool constantly scans the Internet for changes and identifies domain names that may display malicious behaviour », explains Luigi Lenguito, CEO, product manager and one of the three founders of the company.
Once the predictions are made, bfore.ai alerts its subscribers via a computer link, and they then take action before they are targeted. Customers already include companies such as Signify, formerly Philips Lighting, as well as governments, the names of which are confidential. bfore.ai generates all its sales abroad.
Today, the company wants to consolidate its competitive edge by strengthening its foundations and intensifying its international expansion. Hence its fundraising project. With an expected value of over €5M, this operation aims to recruit around twenty Data Scientists within a year and to open three subsidiaries: in the United States, in England and in Northern Europe, in addition to the five international distributors bfore.ai already has.
Supported by START’Oc PROjet, a scheme run by the Occitanie Region, and recipient of a French Tech Deep tech grant from Bpifrance, bfore.ai is also supported by AD’OCC as part of Occitanie Invest.
« This programme allows us to access many investment funds in a short period of time. We would never have been able to approach so many so quickly. AD’OCC’s support is a major factor in the exponential growth we have experienced since our creation », concludes Luigi Lenguito.
