Amossys is recognized as a major player in the evaluation of cybersecurity products. In particular, the company is the only independent evaluator approved by the French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems (ANSSI) to carry out security assessments as part of the First Level Security Certification (CSPN) and according to the Common Criteria (CC).
Almond, supported by the Apax Partners fund since 2021, has positioned itself as part of the process set up by Societex Corporate Finance.
Christophe Dupas et Frédéric Remi, Amossys : Societex played a particularly important role in the process of handing over AMOSSYS, from the first phases of reflection (preparation of the file, suggestions on the entities to contact), throughout the process (organization of exchanges with candidates, advice on Q&A and construction of the data room) until the final sale. His professionalism was decisive in the success of the operation. Societex, in addition to the skills and availability of its teams, was able to provide us with the human resources in number and quality on the project from the beginning of the mandate. The management of the advice to the seller, the stubbornness of our interlocutors were key success factors.
