Trustonic has been awarded the new Security Visa by the French National Cybersecurity Agency.
This prestigious stamp of approval is used by the Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d’information (ANSSI) to help commercial businesses and government organizations make informed decisions about cybersecurity solutions.
The ANSSI Security Visa recognizes the most secure, reliable and robust solutions. This certification is based on extensive penetration testing and in-depth analysis which ensures compliance with stringent international standards.
“Security is a top priority for business and government and both recognize that app protection is central in the battle against malware, hacking and fraud,” says Christophe Colas, SVP Products & Licensing, Trustonic. “Together with the other international accreditations we already have, including FIPS and GlobalPlatform, this latest award based on the Common Criteria certification of our product, demonstrates the robustness and reliability of our platform against the very highest standards. It gives our customers the confidence that they are choosing a solution that has been evaluated and approved by the most rigorous bodies, a critical consideration for banking, payments, IoT, government and enterprise mobile app developers who want to protect sensitive data, IP, customer information and, ultimately, their reputation.”
The Trustonic platform is already embedded into more than 1.5 billion devices and combines hardware and software security with development tools that make building the most secure mobile apps easy for developers. Trustonic provides a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), a hardware-based security technology that offers a secure operating system (OS) isolated from the normal device OS, utilizing a unique and distinct trusted identity embedded into devices during manufacture. This makes the device, and trusted applications running on it that have been developed using Trustonic’s SDK, highly protected against threats and enables enhanced security such as biometric authentication and secure PIN entry.
“Many app developers use software protection alone or OS-based security functions, but it is rarely robust or effective enough to protect sensitive apps,” adds Colas. “By using Trustonic Application Protection, they can easily build enhanced hardware-backed protected applications to deliver faster, richer and safer services to any device.”
