About StreamScan

StreamScan is the only company in the cybersecurity space today focused on bringing affordable, enterprise-level Managed Detection & Response services to medium-sized organizations.

Security for All

Founded in 2011, Montreal-based StreamScan is the brainchild of founder and leading Cyber Security researcher Karim Ganame. Karim’s vision was that there had to be an approach to cybersecurity that could make enterprise-level protection available to all sizes of organizations. StreamScan’s team of AI-specialists, cybersecurity researchers, and white hat hackers developed the CDS network monitoring platform as an answer to this challenge.

Over the first few years, the StreamScan team realized that most medium-sized organizations simply did not have the security team to manage and operate the system. To respond to this need, StreamScan launched its Managed Detection & Response (MDR) solution. The MDR provides enterprise-level security technology supported by a dedicated team of on-call security experts. And all at a fraction of the cost of running an in-house program or outsourcing to a typical MSSP.

StreamScan now has clients across a wide range of industries with particular focus on manufacturing, healthcare, and pharma. In 2019, StreamScan CDS technology was also selected by the Canadian government as a pre-approved security platform for all government departments and partners.

Key Players

Here are a few of the key players whose experience, expertise, and enthusiasm are helping StreamScan become the leader in MDR for medium-sized business.

Karim Ganame, Founder / President

After stints with Rona and Bell, Karim founded StreamScan to start building his unique perspectives and approaches into the kind of cybersecurity protection he saw companies needed.

Over the past decade, Karim has provided the vision (and often the code) to develop StreamScan’s unique AI-powered CDS network monitoring technology and to help build StreamScan’s Managed Detection & Response service.

Karim is an acknowledged thought leader and sought after speaker and commentator on all things cybersecurity in Quebec.
