SCS in a nutshell with Jean-Philippe Aumasson and Jonas Wagner
Switzerland has become a hotspot for security startups. Our program chair Christian Folini discusses this with his guests cryptographer Jean-Philippe Aumasson (@veorq), co-founder and Chief Security Officer of Taurus, and Jonas Wagner (@_jwagner), co-founder and Chief Technical Officer of Threatray. Both startups started in 2018 and both closed successful financing rounds. Yet this is about where the parallels end: Taurus has positioned itself as a go-to shop for anything around the management of crypto assets / digital ledgers (we’re trying to the obvious term here). Taurus is therefore using its FINMA licence to address banks and investors. Threatray in contrast is a deep tech startup that supports malware analysis with machine learning and strong indexing. Obviously Threatray’s market are security researchers and their labs.
This 4th episode of SCS in a nutshell discusses the plan behind the two startups, the technology, financing, growth, hitting your market, recruiting and much more.
