In a society where the digital becomes ubiquitous, each day we recognize the extraordinary opportunities that it has to offer. However, this transformation does not come without new threats, affecting government authorities, businesses and individuals. Therefore, digital trust is one now of the great strategic, economic and social challenges of our time. And because this trust cannot exist without security, it is equally crucial to be aware of the vital importance of putting in place appropriate solutions for securing information systems at the right level.
While there are many and various cybersecurity solutions available on the market, they are not all equally effective, robust and trustworthy. Aware of the need for clarification about this market, ANSSI launches the security Visa. As the national authority regarding cybersecurity and cyberdefense, ANSSI helps companies, government authorities and citizens to make a choice between the different security solutions.
The security Visa issued by ANSSI makes it possible to easily identify the most reliable solutions that are recognised as such following an evaluation performed by laboratories licensed in accordance with rigorous and tried methods. In particular, this evaluation involves extensive penetration testing and in-depth analysis to make sure that the solutions are compliant with the corresponding standards. It is only on completion of this process that ANSSI decides whether or not to issue the Visa for the product or service provider evaluated. Depending on the context and need, this Visa takes the form of a certification or qualification, valued in France and internationally.
The ANSSI security Visa gives a global vision of French qualification and certification processes, coming from a 20-year old experience and globally recognized.
By engaging in the process leading to the awarding of the ANSSI security Visa, product suppliers and service providers acquire the means to offer real competitive added value, and ultimately a guarantee of competitiveness for their companies and reassurance for their clients. The security Visa enables manufacturers to access to numerous cybersecurity markets in France and internationally.
ANSSI edited six tools in order to present and promote the security Visa and to support the different stakeholders:
