Welcome Bastion, a French firm founded in October 2022 with the goal of assisting small businesses in managing cybersecurity threats with a minimum of fuss. The startup was formed by ex-Palantir workers and has already raised $2.8 million.

Bastion aspires to be your first and final cybersecurity membership, which distinguishes it from other startup companies in the field. With a software-as-a-service strategy, it combines several various products that are all focused on dangers related to cybersecurity. 

First, many business angel investors, including Denis Duverne, Joshua Motta, Renaud Deraison, and Galle Olivier, invested in the firm. They were joined by Kima Ventures, Motier Ventures, and Global Founders Capital.

The four co-founders of Palantir – Arnaud Fournier, Arnaud Drizard, Sébastien Duc, and Robin Costé – were all involved in cybersecurity in some capacity before starting the company. Some of them worked on a tiny cybersecurity team that didn’t include representatives from the government or other public agencies. One of them was in charge of the anti-fraud services provided by major banks and insurance firms.

Currently, Bastion has four distinct modules. Firstly, since employees frequently share credentials, the startup first conducts phishing simulation tests. Bastion and Riot are rivals with this training curriculum.

Secondly, in order to ensure that your attack surface is as little as feasible, Bastion monitors your infrastructure and online applications. The business provides you with a list of corrections to enhance your configuration.

Thirdly, endpoints like laptops used by employees are scanned and secured by Bastion. “As a kind of enhanced antivirus product with a staff that monitors what’s occurring in real-time, we offer an EDR solution,” according to Fournier. Endpoint detection and response are known by the acronym EDR. Bastion collaborates with a white-label EDR supplier on this product.

And lastly, Bastion hopes that its fourth module would assist businesses in keeping track of incoming emails. Customers may forward questionable emails right now so they can verify whether or not it is a genuine email. At some point, the business also intends to assist you in setting up filters on new emails so that they never even show up in your workers’ inboxes.

For about €10 per employee each month, Bastion offers the whole package. Some businesses may elect to subscribe to a portion of Bastion’s offerings, but this isn’t an inexpensive option.

In the upcoming months, Bastion intends to establish a network of partners who are currently assisting small and medium-sized enterprises and who may begin marketing Bastion to their own clients. Naturally, there will also be novel functions and product upgrades.
