Orange Cyberdefense offers companies and institutions a “sovereign” solution with Ercom Cryptobox to strengthen their digital security

Orange Business Services, through its Orange Cyberdefense division, entered into a partnership with Ercom to market and deploy Cryptobox, an ultra-secure sharing and collaboration solution.

As work environments are becoming increasingly open and collaborative, digital security and sovereignty are more than ever a priority for governments and companies. To meet these strategic requirements, Orange Cyberdefense and Ercom are combining their expertise to provide a solution that fits the work models and digital transformation of public and private organizations of all sizes in a sustainable way.

The agreement between Orange Cyberdefense and Ercom covers the marketing, deployment, integration and maintenance of the Cryptobox solution developed by Ercom. This allows Orange Cyberdefense to offer its customers in Europe a collaborative solution, including file sharing, instant messaging, and end-to-end data encryption, on both mobile and desktop devices (computers, smartphones, and tablets). Employees can confidentially share information, both inside and outside their company.

This solution, hosted on Orange datacenters in France, can be deployed in the Cloud (SaaS), or installed directly on client servers.

Ercom Cryptobox perfectly addresses the digital security and sovereignty requirements of our customers, companies and administrations, when exchanging sensitive data. With this solution, which will be complemented by a range of critical services for our customers, Orange Cyberdefense completes its cybersecurity portfolio,” explained Michel Van Den Berghe, CEO, Orange Cyberdefense.

We are excited to partner with Orange Cyberdefense to accelerate the marketing and  deployment of our Cryptobox solution. Orange and Ercom combine their efforts to provide customers with Cryptobox, a simple and secure solution operated by a trusted party, allowing them to protect their data assets while leveraging the flexibility and cost benefits offered by the cloud,” declared Yannick Dupuch, President and CEO, Ercom.
