Atos receives NATO Secret certification for its HSM TrustWay Proteccio®

Paris, September 29th 2016

Through its technological brand Bull, Atos announces that the North Atlantic Military Committee has granted NATO Secret certification to the latest HSM TrustWay Proteccio®, the range of high-performance cryptographic appliances fully developed and made in France.

Obtaining this approval enables all members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to meet their obligations to protect and secure keys with confidence.

Faced with the proven threat of cyberattacks that could threaten the very existence of governmental and military organizations, TrustWay Proteccio® is the benchmark security solution both in France and around the world. It offers a very high technological level of physical protection to manage keys and cryptographic operations to the benefit of critical applications in place in governmental administrations and defense companies.

"This new approval granted to TrustWay Proteccio® confirms Atos's position as a major European player in the design of cybersecurity solutions at a very high level that can meet the requirements of demanding international customers," says Chris Moret, VP of Cybersecurity at Atos. "It is part of our continuing efforts to develop high-security systems that are recognized and verified by the relevant certification bodies at both national and international level, in order to support the allied forces and ensure their operations are carried out successfully."

This year the TrustWay Proteccio® range from Bull has already received the Common Criteria EAL 4+ certification from the French Network and Information Security Agency (ANSSI), in addition to SOG-IS and the "Qualification Renforcée" (the highest qualification level from the ANSSI).
