Security Certification

Visa de sécurité de l'ANSSI

Security Visa from ANSSI dated 14th of February 2018 for WAPT Enterprise Edition 1.5.0.13

Cybersecurity solutions are many and diverse, but not all of them offer the same level of effectiveness, robustness and trust.

Security Visas that the French cyberdefence agency, ANSSI, delivers allow to identify more easily the most reliable security solutions. They are recognized as such after having been evaluated by approved laboratories following a rigorous and recognized methodology.

Main features

For System Administrators:

  • install software and configurations silently;
  • maintain up to date an installed base of software and configurations;
  • configure software at the system and user level to reduce the load on support teams;
  • remove unwanted or out of cycle software and configurations silently;
  • give Users more autonomy to install software safely and reliably;
  • reduce as much as possible the consumption of bandwidth on remote sites to preserve it for productive uses;

For IT Security Officers

  • pilot the software installed base to converge to a security standard acceptable to the Organization;
  • prepare your enterprise for the coming GDPR and help your DPO keep his register of data processing, because you two will become close colleages;
  • to no more tolerate machines operating in “Administrator” mode;
  • reduce the level of exposure to software vulnerabilities and lateral movement attacks;
  • bring up audit indicators for a better knowledge of the state of installed IT devices and their global security;
  • be prompt to deploy updates to react to cyber attacks like Wannacry or notPetya

For End-Users

  • have your software configured to work well in the context of your Organization and trust that they will work correctly;
  • reduce your need for support by your IT teams, whose reaction times are often long becuase of their workloads;
  • to build a better contact with your IT support teams because IT works better as malfunctions happen less often because of standard, better managed and more predictable software configurations;
