Worldline receives NF Logiciel certification for its "Digital Safe Component"
Paris, 26 November 2014
Worldline [Euronext:WLN], European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, is the first multinational to receive NF Logiciel certification for its "Digital Safe Component”. Worldline's digital eSafe solution has an extra feature to offer users the best possible security, integrity and quality for preservation of their digital data.
AFNOR NF Z 42-020 is the first standard of its kind in France. It targets companies offering a secure storage service, and describes the functional specifications for a component used to preserve digital data in conditions that will guarantee integrity over time.
For corporate entities, transition to a digital setup is an essential step to reduce costs, boost operational efficiency and offer simpler services available to users at any time, thereby enhancing loyalty and ultimately creating more revenue. The Worldline eSafe solution is the cornerstone of this process, guaranteeing the confidentiality and integrity of data stored in France in a private Cloud to facilitate exchanges between companies and their customers, governments and the public at large.
"Reassuring our banking customers, always eager to offer their own customers the highest levels of quality in terms of e-safe offers, is a Worldline must. Other sectors are now thinking of offering this kind of service to their subscribers - telecommunications operators, or governments to the general public. As a European organization with widespread recognition on the market, we simply had to get this label", says Christophe Duquenne, Chief Technology Officer at Worldline.
"The Digital Safe Component's NF Logiciel certification officially demonstrates compliance with the AFNOR NF Z42-020 standard. The new NF software application comes in response to calls from software publishers such as Worldline, making an active contribution to the creation and development of the label", claims Jean-Louis Michel, President of INFOCERT.
