PDIS Certification in France
On November 2019, we received the PDIS (Prestataire de Détection d’Incidents de Sécurité – Security Incident Detection Service Provider) certification from the National Cybersecurity Agency of France, ANSSI. We are now part of a small group of only five companies that are currently accredited PDIS. On top of this, we are the only company to go through the updated PDIS qualification process so far!
OT portfolio update
In June 2019, we updated our OT portfolio for industrial cyber security. Utilising our experience from protecting our own OT assets, we provide a complete offering to allow our customers to assess, protect and manage their OT environment and to achieve the CyberResilience for Tomorrow they need.
New business partnerships
As a great news never comes alone, we signed two business partnerships in 2019 with strategic cyber companies and universities.
In October 2019, we signed a joint agreement with Thales to offer a comprehensive cyber threat detection solution. As European leaders in critical information systems and cyber security, this agreement allows us to combine our sovereign products: Thales’s cyber-attack detection system Cybels Sensor and our Orion Malware platform.
New university partnerships ahead
Last but not least, we signed several partnership letters of intent in France with the following universities: l’université de Rennes 1, l’ISEN de Lille, l’ISEN de Brest, l’IMT de Lille Douai, la Centrale Supélec, l’ENSTA Bretagne, l’Efrei Paris, l’université de Bretagne Sud, l’Enssat, l’ESIEA et le groupe ESEO. As an industry, working closely together with schools and universities will allow us to further collaborate in terms of cyber security innovations and training for the future generation of cyber security specialists.
