“Caisse d’Epargne Group selects Atos Origin to run its new electronic vault solution « Webcoffre »”

Paris, October 15th, 2007

Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin Company, hosts and runs the « Webcoffre » virtual vault solution on behalf of Caisse d'Epargne Group. The solution includes certification, time and date stamping processes and ensures long-term secure archiving of electronic documents for Caisse d'Epargne customers.

In response to the demand for long-term archiving of electronic documents, the Caisse d'Epargne offers its clients a secure online facility through Atos Worldline, ensuring high-level security, document integrity and time and date stamping in accordance with the AFNOR NF Z 42-013 standard and RFC 3161 specification.

Internet users can choose between three storage options (1GB, 5GB or 10GB) for their personal or professional documents; scanned documents, photographs, PDF files, Word documents, etc.

An extensive set of security measures and tools used in the banking industry have been implemented to offer clients secure and long term storage of their digital documents as well as 24/7 access from all over the world:

  • If desired, a certificate of integrity and time and date stamp can be provided for each document placed in the vault. Integrity is ensured thanks to a unique imprint based on the document content generated by a hash function. Time and date stamping is realised thanks to a specific infrastructure, called Time and Date Stamping Authorisation.
  • The Caisse d'Epargne « Webcoffre » service is hosted on a secure and reliable infrastructure that ensures physical and logical data protection against any possible intrusions. Regularly audited regulations ensure proper operation of the service.

The deployment of the « Webcoffre » by the Caisse d'Epargne, based on Atos Worldline technical solution “Worldline Safebox”, responds to the needs of internet users looking for simple, long-term, secure solutions for the storage of their digital documents.
