Pierre Calais, CEOWith the data deluge and increased risk of threats and security attacks, many firms are readily deploying security solutions to counter the impacts. However, despite the widespread adoption of security solutions, enterprises often encounter complexities with respect to management and administration of workload in their daily struggle. To relieve the customers from the impediments arising from the utilization of multiple security solutions, Stormshield, a fully-owned subsidiary of Airbus Defense and Space, delivers unified solutions with convenient and intuitive graphical interface. “These interfaces have been designed to drastically reduce management overload,” says Pierre Calais, CEO, Stormshield. “This provides easy management and protection of a firm’s infrastructure, endpoints, as well as data.”
To address new security needs and to leverage the global protection level, Stormshield’s suite of solutions comprises of data, endpoint, and network security functionalities.
