We’re here to safeguard your reputation, revenue, and resources with the first and only cybersecurity technology to actively block bad ads.
Our superstrengths include detecting malicious advertising faster than a speeding bullet and replacing unwanted ads in a single bound. And unlike other security companies, we keep watch from both the server and client sides, so you get double the protection and double the peace of mind.
We keep our data transparent, our research up to date, and our platform highly customizable. So whether you’re a techie who digs the details, or a CEO who needs a tool you can set and forget, you have the power to be as involved and in control as you want to be.
With Confiant at your back, you can confidently move forward—knowing that cybercriminals,bad actors,malware and don’t stand a chance.
Louis-David “LD” Mangin
Co-Founder & CEO
Confiant is not LD’s first rodeo. In fact, it’s the sixth start up he’s been a part of and the second he co-founded. When he’s not keeping the Confiant team collaborating and caffeinated, you can usually count on LD to be planning his next offshore sailing adventure or working on his yoga headstands.
Co-Founder & CTO
Jerome has had a keen interest in computer security ever since he started coding in his childhood. When he’s not building another wild proof of concept, he might be found struggling at the piano or goofing around with his daughter.
We Are Confiant
When LD and Jerome first teamed up in September 2013, cybersecurity technology was up against some bad actors that just couldn’t be beat. They realized it was time to rethink the way the industry tackled malvertising and low quality ads. So they set out to do what had never been done before. In 2017, they launched the industry’s first real-time verification and blocking solution. And today, they’ve assembled an award-winning team of security heroes who are courageously carrying out the Confiant mission: to make the digital world safe for everyone.
