Lille, France – June 8, 2022
Client-side encryption is one of the most effective approaches when it comes to protecting the confidentiality of the data exchanged. Few solutions are compatible with this approach as it makes the data opaque to the service provider.
Although Microsoft has recently offered a robust client-side encryption mechanism (DKE for Double Key Encryption), its secure implementation can be particularly complex. Also, Atos and DuoKey are joining forces to provide a very secure implementation of the DKE protocol, in particular by guaranteeing the generation and sequestration of keys in French cryptographic boxes (HSM) and qualified by ANSSI.
Atos’ Trustway Proteccio is the only HSM which holds enhanced qualification from the French cybersecurity agency (ANSSI), as well as NATO secret and EU restricted qualifications. Duokey’s native encryption solution has been designed specifically for Microsoft 365 and meets the highest security requirements. Their joint solution is fully integrated within Office 365 office suite.
“We wanted to address the need for optimum data control expressed by many of our customers, as Office 365 is used by most organizations. We are pleased to work with DuoKey to provide a cryptographic solution that ensures complete data sovereignty for our joint customers.” comments Cyril Dujardin, Global head of Digital Security, Atos.
“The collaboration with the Atos Trustway team was very successful. Our teams worked together to natively integrate the DuoKey solution with Atos’ Trustway Proteccio HSM. Our solutions work perfectly together to provide clients the ability to secure, at a very granular level, their RSA 2048 key for Double Key Encryption within a certified HSM NATO Secret, EU Restricted, ANSSI QR.” said Nagib Aouini CEO, DuoKey.
Atos is a global leader in cybersecurity with a team of over 6,000 security specialists, a large range of cybersecurity products, and a worldwide network of 15 SOCs that operate 24/7.
