Already a brand that has been adopted by large French corporations, StormShield, the solution for the protection of workstations developed by Arkoon+Netasq, has enjoyed overwhelming support in the United States, where it is already deployed by many clients in sensitive fields.
The innovation that characterizes StormShield has allowed it to stand out in a highly competitive North America market, pitted against giants in the sector.
StormShield now has ambitions of gaining similar support in new geographical zones, by meeting the current challenge of raising corporate awareness to the need for data security.
The Middle East and Western Europe (in particular Germany and Great Britain) have expressed deep interest in this technology which complements and extends the effectiveness of conventional antivirus solutions, through an innovative approach.
With StormShield, Arkoon+Netasq is indeed offering comprehensive and consistent protection on PCs and servers, and centrally manages all risks associated with the workstation, even in mobile mode: vulnerabilities, known and unknown (0-day) attacks, intrusions, inappropriate use of personal applications, unauthorized connectivity and the loss or theft of critical data. StormShield stands out in particular from other solutions thanks to its unique host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS), which can proactively block the most sophisticated targeted attacks. Used in the most demanding contexts, StormShield offers an unequalled level of security while remaining fully seamless for users.
StormShield’s race to attract international markets is good news for corporations that benefit from significant influence internationally and which need to leverage reliable security, advanced and differentiating solutions. Arkoon+Netasq’s international expertise has already been illustrated through branches in Europe and the Middle East, and in the deployment of network protection solutions in more than 40 countries.
Arkoon+Netasq are 100%-owned subsidiaries of Airbus Defence and Space (Airbus Group). They offer end-to-end security solutions which are particularly innovative for network protection (Fast 360 and Netasq U Series S Models, Netasq NG range and Netasq virtual appliances), endpoint protection (StormShield) and data protection (SecurityBox). These trusted solutions are certified at the highest European level (EU RESTRICTED, NATO and ANSSI EAL4+), to secure strategic information. They are sold through a network of resellers, integrators and telecom operators to companies, government and defence organisations of all sizes throughout the world.
