Announcing – Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information (ANSSI) Joins OISF

The Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) and Suricata are proud to announce that the  Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information (ANSSI) has joined as a Gold level consortium member.  As a national authority, ANSSI reports to the Secretary General for Defense and National Security (SGDSN) assisting the Prime Minister in fulfilling his responsibilities in matters of national defense and security.

By joining OISF and supporting Suricata, ANSSI is reinforcing France’s ongoing commitment to cybersecurity as a national priority, one that now concerns each and every one of its citizens.   As a community–run non-profit organization since 2009, OISF has relied on a dedicated community of volunteers and industry supporters that contribute time, feedback, and code to Suricata, a high-performance, and open source Network IDS, IPS, and Network Security Monitoring engine. The success of Suricata and OISF is a direct result of their commitment.

ANSSI believes strongly in the ability of Suricata to drive the next generation of open source IDS/IPS engines. Suricata is at the core of the innovation happening in this field. Together with OISF, ANSSI is excited to support powerful and trusted cybersecurity solutions.

Thanks to partnerships and support by OISF consortium members, like ANSSI, Suricata will continue to be a world-class, high-performance network IDS, IPS, and network security monitoring engine.
