EBRC and WALLIX Group join forces to strengthen the protection of critical assets in Europe
December 2018 by Marc Jacob
EBRC (European Business Reliance Centre), IT service operator specialized in the management of sensitive information and WALLIX Group, a European publisher of Privileged Access Management (PAM) software, partnered with the aim of setting up “by design” protection of IT systems and guaranteeing the companies’ trust in digital.
EBRC and WALLIX want to provide businesses and organisations with the means to implement a cyber-resilience strategy to deal with digital environments that are increasingly exposed to risks of cyber-attacks and subject to extremely stringent regulatory constraints, particularly in the fields of finance, health and the public sector.
WALLIX helps organisations protect their critical IT infrastructures by securing and tracing access to servers, terminals and connected objects in the cloud environment. By encouraging organisations to design their cybersecurity policy according to the “Privacy & Security by Design” principle, WALLIX also enables them to meet compliance requirements and changes in regulations. Since its creation in 2000, EBRC has positioned itself as a specialist in the management and protection of sensitive information and has developed an offer that is unique in the market as it integrates the full value chain: consultancy, outsourcing, cloud, security, business continuity and data centres enabling it to offer a cyber-resilient service offering. This offering is aligned with the highest level of requirements, including international standards and certifications: ISO 27001, ISO 22301, ISO 20000, PCI DSS and Tier IV, to name a few.
By relying on a trusted European partner such as WALLIX, EBRC further strengthens the value of its offering for the protection of business-critical data. Thus, EBRC offers WALLIX Bastion for the implementation of strategic IT projects within a standardised environment. The clients of EBRC’s subsidiary, Digora, can enjoy the benefits of the Bastion solution. By striking up this partnership, the two entities contribute to strengthen trust in digital by making a simplified cybersecurity solution available to organisations in order to ensure their compliance with all regulations.
