August Debouzy advised Yogosha, pioneer of private Bug Bounty in France which provides an innovative solution for auditing and verifying security breaches in companies of all sizes, in its second investment round of approximately EUR 2 million led by BNP Paribas Développement, OneRagtime and its current investors Axeleo Capital, Starquest Capital and ZTP.
Launched in 2015, Yogosha has developed a platform enabling companies to detect and correct their vulnerabilities before being exploited by cybercriminals. The resulting programs test security through a community of 5,000 independent hackers, who are paid based on the critical state of the vulnerabilities detected. Bouygues Telecom, L'Oréal, BNP Paribas, Cdiscount, Galeries Lafayette and Veolia are among its customers. Yogosha also received the "Special Jury Prize" at the International Cybersecurity Forum (ICF) in 2019.
August Debouzy advised Yogosha with a team composed of Julien Wagmann (partner) and Leslie Ginape (associate).
