- “Very valuable service for public officials. Every second saved is valuable and Intersec is helping the public sector with a much-needed solution.”
- “By June 2022, the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) Article 110 requires
all EU countries to operate a public warning system that can send geo-targeted emergency alerts to all mobile phone users located in the affected area during a natural or man-made disaster. GeoSafe is a great product that combines both Cell Broadcast and Location-Based SMS as a public warning system. SMS bases warning system is especially helpful where a small population and no natural disaster is involved as it allows 2-way communication. CB is like a ‘digital siren’, the fastest and most reliable way to send a message during a rapid onset emergency. GeoSafe fulfills requirements under EECC Article 110.”
- “Intersec's Geosafe Public Warning System is an effective way for governments to broadcast messages based on the location of the people. It's definitely one of the solutions for the EU's requirement for PWS.”
Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early September.
GeoSafe definitly is the product of the year!

Paris — November 18, 2019 —
Yann Chevalier, Intersec CEO received a Mobile Breakthrough Awards in the “CEO of the year” category.
These awards honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of mobile companies, technologies and products. The Mobile Breakthrough Awards are run by the Tech Breakthrough organization, a market intelligence organization that specializes in researching the most competitive areas of technology around the world.
Founded by Yann Chevalier and Jean Marc Coïc in 2004, Intersec is a leading vendor of real-time streaming analytics software
Led by Yann, the Intersec vision lies in the belief that society can benefit from massive progress, innovative services and remarkable quality of experience by enabling data mining and leveraging mobility and activity data. This data exploitation makes people’s lives easier, safer, and more enjoyable.
Intersec therefore provides its customers with a single software platform, able to sustain very high throughputs of data, to develop value across multiple areas of their business:
• by enhancing their core capabilities around customer knowledge, contextual engagement, behavioral analytics, or fraud
• by increasing safety, enabling emergency communication, and providing studies for urban planning to the benefit of communities
• by upgrading advertising thanks to location, audience, or footfall measurement
• and by leveraging their brand equity to become the trusted escrow of consumer data, introducing certified partner services into the home or into a mobility context.
It is because of this ground-breaking work in the technology sector that Yann was named the CEO of the year.
“It’s an honor to be named CEO of the year 2019. This award is a recognition to our team. Our success would not be possible without our amazing employees. Together, we innovate to always better serve our customers and grow” says Yann Chevalier.
GDPR compliant from day one, Intersec solutions now offer robust and fine-grained data policy management
June 28th 2019 – Paris, France – Intersec, leading vendor of real-time streaming analytics software, has announced the successful integration of Smart-Cascading Workspaces into its solutions. These Workspaces act as “containers,” allowing enabled users to create and organize secured airtight work groups and work environments to guarantee data security and privacy.
Data Governance consists in a set of guidelines and policies to optimize, secure, and leverage data as a business asset. Data Governance insures the company against regulatory risks.
Smart-Cascading Workspaces guarantee DPOs (Data Protection Officers) that their defined Data Governance strategy is correctly implemented. And with CCPA (Consumer Californian Privacy Act) becoming effective in January 2020, Data Governance is not only a need for European-related business, it becomes an inevitable topic for every Northern-American company.
This is one of the reasons why Intersec has deployed the Workspaces in all its solutions. They enable collaborative work between users on the same tools, dashboards, and datasets by assigning roles to users or groups while setting rules for access and non-access.
Elements are in private mode (hidden from other users) by default and can be published in the Workspace at any time. Their cascading property is particularly useful to share parts of published objects with sub-level workspaces. The cascaded objects then smartly adapt to the potential restrictions of sub-workspaces, in full compliancy with GDPR principles and Data Protection.
Moreover, a specific user can be granted auditor rights in order to verify data protection compliancy. He may audit the connections as well as the workflows (to make sure there is an opt-out scenario for example) without having access to the non-aliased data.
Smart-Cascading Workspaces typically benefit the Intersec GeoSafe Solution by setting-up sealed containers to host sensitive investigation files only accessible to duly accredited users. Privacy protection is mastered, and Data security is ensured.
Another field of application is location-based advertising. With the Intersec GeoReach Solution, operators offer marketing agencies a dedicated workspace that they can partition for each of their advertisers. Their campaigns, lists, market segments, strategies, etc. are completely safe and visible only by the brand and the Agency.
The Intersec GeoTrack Solution allows large service providers to share a common IT platform between various, unrelated and often competing IoT fleets. Smart-Cascading Workspaces enable each IoT fleet manager to use the common platform, as if he or she were the only user. Workspaces provide a secure space where device information, geofence definitions, and lists of devices are privately managed.
“We developed this approach for all the solutions we offer, to bring value to our customers and help them enforce their GDPR compliancy,” CEO Yann Chevalier commented. “We believe this is the first step in helping them become privacy-first global platforms that offer high value services to their customers. We’re thrilled to start 2019 with such an important announcement and look forward to sharing this feature with our clients and prospects.”
