IT security is our leitmotiv

We have strengthened our IT security department, both with our Trusted Security Europe and our Advisory Services offers, explains Yves Reding, EBRC CEO. In 2013, the Edward Snowden’s disclosures and the cloud progression have awakened up consciousness on the importance of IT Security strategy, being thus at the heart of the concerns. This choice has been profitable.

Yves Reding:

In 2013, we realised a 42% growth in the high added-value services: Managed Services , Cloud Services and Advisory Services . 25 new clients chose EBRC, including clients in the e-payment sector .

During this year, we also received news labels such as the Five Stars label delivered by eco, the association of the German Internet Industry, for three of our Data Centres. This standard guarantees high performance and quality of our infrastructures. Moreover, the Uptime Institute delivered the Tier IV Constructed Facility certification to one of our Data Centre. This certification is the first one in Luxembourg and the third in Europe .

Our Trusted Security Europe offer, already ISO 20000 and ISO 9001 certified, now also meets the ISO 27001 requirements, the international Information security management standard.

To counter the threats, attacks and IT risk evolution, the clients are looking for a managed IT solution, in which security is already integrated. This is the reason why we have strengthened our security department and launched our Trusted Security Europe service. Our Advisory department has also been strengthened with IT security consultants and risks managers in order to develop the risk management for our clients
