Systancia and Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise join forces to offer secure solutions to facilitate telecommuting
Paris, June 2, 2020 - Systancia, a European specialist in cybersecurity and application virtualization solutions, and Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE), the global leader in enterprise cloud communication, collaboration and networking solutions, today announced a partnership to offer companies a set of secure and complementary solutions to facilitate the organization of their employees' teleworking and ensure business continuity.
An association aiming at securing teleworking and simplify remote collaboration
With its Systancia Gate solution, Systancia developed a tool well before the current health crisis, enabling employees in a teleworking situation to access their professional interface and the critical applications for carrying out all their daily tasks efficiently and securely, wherever they are and whether or not they are using equipment provided by the company. This solution has been deployed by many organizations and local authorities, including the GHU Paris (Le Groupe Hospitalier Universitaire) and the Greater Besançon Metropolis.
"Systancia Gate offers many benefits to companies at a time when teleworking is becoming widespread. It provides access, outside the company's walls, to all the business applications normally used within the company. It guarantees flexibility and agility to respond to a planned need (an on-call duty for example) or a constrained context (Covid 19 type epidemic, strikes, bad weather such as snow, floods, etc.). Systancia Gate also makes it possible to manage access to the information system according to various profiles and access situations (management of user access rights to the company's various content). Finally, it offers an equivalent user experience in terms of performance and ergonomics at the workstation used in the office", explains Bernard Debauche, Chief Product & Marketing at Systancia.
The Systancia Gate solution complements Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s Rainbow, an extended cloud-based collaboration service developed and hosted in France. This application enables customers to ensure business continuity on site, remotely or on mobility.
"Rainbow is a unifying tool for instant, reliable and secure communication. This collaboration tool allows users to quickly interact with each other, their partners and customers, through chat, voice or video, internal news channels, conferences, video conferencing, screen and file sharing with great ease and in a secure manner. Rainbow is easy to deploy and use from a single compatible browser, making it both easy to deploy and easy to adopt.
In addition, this tool enables fixed, mobile and application convergence with office phones, to enable ubiquitous communication for employees and customers. Rainbow is secure with a datacenter in France while ensuring the integrity of its customers' data, in compliance with the requirements of the French Data Protection General Regulation (RGPD) and ISO27001 certified," said Jean-Philippe Lenot, Head of Strategic Partnerships, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise.
Tools designed and manufactured in France to support the spread of teleworking
Many French companies discovered massive teleworking during the Covid-19 crisis, and as a result, they urgently called for consumer or professional collaboration solutions. Through their partnership, Systancia and Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) are asserting their desire to promote the French ecosystem of IT security and collaborative work, convinced that the sovereignty of our data also requires the use of trusted players whose solutions are designed to meet legal obligations in terms of information system security and data protection.
Both companies have made strong commitments: with data centers in France, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and Systancia are committed to implementing a strict policy of access security and data confidentiality that generates the trust that is essential for collaborative work. The Systancia Gate solution is the only teleworking solution certified by ANSSI and the Alcatel-Lucent Rainbow solution is certified by the HDS standard, which guarantees the security of health data.
The technological integration of the two solutions, Systancia and Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, is under way in order to rapidly offer a turnkey solution to all companies needing a sovereign and secure solution to protect data exchanged via telework and collaborative solutions.
