Paris, March 13, 2020 – Systancia, the European specialist in cybersecurity and application virtualization solutions, is answering the request made by the French Secretary of State for the Digital Sector and provides its teleworking solution, Systancia Gate, free of charge for a period of 3 months. This announcement is the result of a strengthened cooperation with OVHcloud, which is developing the cloud infrastructure hosting this solution.
In order to limit the spread of the coronavirus in the most affected areas, it is likely that more and more people will be forced to stay at home and that companies will recommend their employees to work from home in order to reduce the health and economic impact of the epidemic. Teleworking protects everyone’s health and allows companies to continue their activities.
While many companies have already negotiated telework agreements, few are really prepared in terms of IT infrastructure, especially if a large number of employees must work from home quickly. The challenge today is to offer them a solution that is easy to implement and that keeps their data secure.
In response to a request from Cédric O, Secretary of State for the Digital Sector, Systancia has decided to provide the Systancia Gate solution, hosted by OVHcloud, free of charge for 3 months. The service can be extended by periods of 1 month depending on the duration of the coronavirus pandemic. Systancia Gate is a secure remote access service for workstations and business applications, from professional laptops or mobiles or from a personal computer. It is the only teleworking solution certified by the ANSSI. The service is available as an online service (cloud, SaaS).
Thanks to Systancia Gate, employees can use their Internet browser to access a portal containing their applications from home. They can securely access their applications or workstations located on the company’s internal network. The solution also guarantees that the company remains compliant with security requirements, by eliminating the risk of opening the network too wide for external access. It allows the implementation of the principle of “least privilege”, each employee having access to all his applications and nothing else.
This solution is developed by Systancia, a French company based in Mulhouse, Rennes and Paris. Used by large groups as well as by SMEs and mid-sized companies, or by public structures in France and abroad, the solution is available at this address, as a software or an online service. It can be deployed in only a few minutes.
“Systancia is an SME born in Mulhouse, a city that has been seriously affected by the coronavirus epidemic. Our employees as well as the entire company are already severely impacted. Several sectors of the economy are more affected than others and we cannot but show solidarity,” explains Christophe Corne, founder and Chairman of Systancia’s Management Board. “Providing our secure and government-certified solution free of charge seems to us to be the most appropriate response to contribute to the joint effort and we are delighted to be able to count on a partner such as OVHcloud”.
