Parseur Gets Astra Security’s Pentest Certification
Parseur is a fully remote, bootstrapped company known for its AI document processing software. The company was founded in 2016 by Sylvestre Dupont and Sylvain Josserand. They aimed to build an innovative mail-parsing service with a wider data extraction scope which resulted in the creation of their signature product, Parseur.
Parseur automates the extraction of information from various sources such as emails, PDFs, web pages, spreadsheets, and attachments for companies. The software integrates with tools such as Google Sheets, Microsoft Power Automate, or custom applications. Extraction and sending of data to applications in real-time is made faster with Parseur.
The entirely online service simplifies data extraction and retains a point-and-click setup. The product was developed with security in mind at every stage from software designing to updating and following best software security practices. Parseur’s happy customers include GoKart, eMonkey, Proxima Code and more.
Parseur started looking for holistic pentest services in late 2022 to get a pentest certification as a part of a customer requirement. Several other pentest companies and Astra Security were recommended by fellow B2B SaaS entrepreneurs such as Cobalt.io, BurpSuite, and ImmuniWeb.
However, Astra Security stood out in terms of the services provided since Parseur was looking for a company that would provide them with the best of both worlds, i.e. automated and manual penetration testing. Parseur wanted to go the extra mile and opt for a manual pentest to identify even the most minute vulnerabilities.
