Saint-Cloud, December 11, 2023 – OUTSCALE, a Dassault Systèmes brand, announced today, it has received the ANSSI security visa, SecNumCloud 3.2, for maximum protection of sensitive data.

In June 2023, Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne announced through the “Cloud at the Center” Doctrine, the obligation for “digital services of administrations to be hosted on a SecNumCloud qualified Cloud by ANSSI and protected against any extracommunity regulation”.

A major step in the compliance of public actors, this measure provides guarantees of security and sovereignty to citizens’ data with confidence. Today, holding the SecNumCloud 3.2 qualification, OUTSCALE becomes the first Cloud operator aligned with the “Cloud at the Center” Doctrine and thus becomes the strategic partner for institutions in their compliance efforts in line with the modernization policy of public action.

The SecNumCloud 3.2 qualification ensures maximum protection of sensitive digital data for public institutions, health, and vital operators, with strengthened criteria such as protection against non-European law. This qualification represents the highest standard of security in Europe, including, in this new version, the reinforcement of cybersecurity, the principle of composition, and immunity to extraterritorial regulations.


Sovereign Cloud for Strategic Industrial Data

A major pillar in the quest for data protection solutions, the SecNumCloud 3.2 framework addresses the growing challenges of organizations handling strategic data, such as public institutions, healthcare actors, and vital operators. It assists them in making informed choices aligned with digital challenges.

With the SecNumCloud 3.2 qualification, OUTSCALE has implemented practices that meet technical, legal, and organizational protection requirements. This ensures a maximum level of security and sovereignty over the digital data of critical organizations, allowing them to focus on their core activities, fostering innovation and competitiveness. This qualification, now recognized as the highest standard of security and trust in Europe, goes beyond the criteria of the previous version. It strengthens cybersecurity, introduces the composition principle to expedite the creation of a trusted ecosystem of publishers, and ultimately guarantees the sovereignty of data hosted in the French cloud through immunity to extraterritorial laws.
