Orange Cyberdefense widens access to professional communications security with its “Mobile Security Intense” offer

Paris, France – September 26, 2017

  • A managed service offer for businesses and the public sector
  • A mobile application to easily secure voice, video, instant messaging and file transfers
  • Increased privacy with end-to-end encryption of mobile communications

Orange Cyberdefense launches “Mobile Security Intense”, an offer to secure mobile communications for businesses and the public sector. This managed service offer covers voice, video, instant messaging and file transfers, and was developed through a partnership with French security vendor Ercom. “Mobile Security Intense” completes the Orange mobile security portfolio, in line with its strategy of widening access to cyberdefense tools.

 

In an era where mobility is a daily reality for many employees, companies are becoming aware of the risks associated with insufficiently protecting their communications and sensitive data. “Mobile Security Intense” is a tremendous step forward in widening access to communication security, even for smaller organizations. This new Orange Cyberdefense offer is a highly secure, easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use trusted solution for its customers in France.

Based on Ercom Cryptopass, a SaaS cross-platform mobile application to secure voice, video, instant messaging and data transfers, the offer includes end-to-end encryption for all communications, and ensures complete confidentiality of exchanges between devices on which the application is installed and duly authorized by Orange Cyberdefense.

 

Mobile fleet managers can directly manage users they want to secure from the Orange Cyberdefense managed service portal hosted in France. Orange Cyberdefense supports its customers throughout their journey: from initial deployment and customization, to training and support. For users, the application provides a user friendly and intuitive interface, associated with a single level of security, currently in the process of obtaining the CSPN (*) certification from ANSSI (**).

 

Finally, “Mobile Security Intense” is natively able to scale to the number of devices that can be onboarded and to the panel of services that can added over time.

 

“With Mobile Security Intense, we are expanding our catalog and addressing a much broader corporate target, including companies that until now did not have the resources or the expertise to operate them. This solution widens access to professional mobile communication security, by combining a very high level of privacy with ease of use,” explains Michel Van Den Berghe, CEO of Orange Cyberdefense.

 

With Cryptopass, our cyber security experts have developed a solution allowing companies to secure their mobile exchanges, while providing their employees with modern communication services such as those provided by consumer applications. We are pleased to collaborate with Orange Cyberdefense, integrating Cryptopass into its Mobile Security Intense solution: this combination enables companies to protect their mobile workforce in an efficient and professional manner,” declares Yannick Dupuch, CEO of Ercom.
