WALLIX Bastion Honored Again with Top Certificate From France's Public Agency for Cyber-Security
Paris, 9 January 2020 – WALLIX (Euronext – ALLIX), a European cyber-security software developer and expert in privileged access management (PAM), has been awarded CSPN accreditation — France’s top certificate in cyber-security — for version 6.0.102 of its flagship product WALLIX Bastion. The product having been previously accredited, WALLIX has underlined the strength of its solution, now resistant to thirteen known threats.
This certification from ANSSI — France’s public agency for cyber-security — ensures a high level of software security and can be used to meet the demands of the most sensitive organizations. With this accreditation, WALLIX now stands out in the European PAM market and will step up sales in sectors such as public services, finance, healthcare, industry and telecommunications.
Security and Confidentiality by Design for Session Management
WALLIX wanted to ensure that its Privileged Access Management solution — developed using client cases — would perfectly handle its most common uses: saving actions, log integrity, product-interface access, authentication, password changes, and more. With this prior work, the French software publisher has been able to offer vital added value compared to other, less comprehensive PAM solutions.
Contrary to other certifications that focus more on functional and document-related challenges, the ANSSI tests were conducted in an operational environment in which users tried to maliciously undermine the solution. It is a “must-have” according to Serge Adda, CTO at WALLIX, who reminds us that “the precise aim of the software is to protect its clients from ill-intentioned users.”
The renewal of this certification reaffirms the WALLIX Bastion’s strength in line with the firm’s purpose of providing a product “designed to secure, from conception, privileged accounts and access to critical systems.” The Bastion has managed to retain its simplicity for users and administrators, as well as its low running costs. These features have made it one of the most popular solutions on the market. WALLIX has proved the merits of its R&D investments, thanks to which over 1,000 clients now benefit from high-level security.
Always seeking progress, WALLIX’s employees are especially proud to be re-awarded this certification, which guarantees a currently unrivaled level of service quality. Given the policy behind the application, almost 98% of WALLIX Bastion users recommend the solution. This figure resonates with ANSSI’s decision to certify the product with CSPN accreditation, which proves its full strength.
A software company providing cyber security solutions, WALLIX Group is a European specialist in privileged account governance. In response to recent regulatory change (NIS/GDPR in Europe and OVIs in France) and the cyber security threats affecting all companies today, Bastion helps users protect their critical IT assets: data, servers, terminals and connected objects. It is the first market solution to have been awarded first-level security certification (CSPN) by France’s National Cybersecurity Agency (ANSSI ) and thus meet all of the criteria for regulatory compliance. WALLIX accompanies more than 1000 companies and organizations on a day-to-day basis. Its solutions are marketed through a network of more than 170 resellers and trained and accredited integrators.
