June 16th, 2017 – VINCI Energies becomes a major partner to Sentryo
Sentryo and VINCI Energies have signed a non-exclusive partnership agreement. The goal is to build a common offer to respond to the cybersecurity needs of industrial networks. This partnership will allow VINCI Energies brands such as Axians and Actemium to promote and distribute the ICS CyberVision offering to industrial firms increasingly aware of the threats linked to cybersecurity. The Military Planning Act and recent attacks on sensitive production infrastructure point to the need for innovative solutions to meet these challenges. To present this unique approach, a “VINCI Energies – Sentryo Tour de France” was launched in April 2017. The first stages were organised recently in Lyon, Marseille and Nice and further meetings are scheduled for Brest and Paris over the next few months.
Axians, a brand dedicated to ICT solutions, helps customers implement their IT infrastructure and services including digital transformation projects. Actemium is the VINCI Energies brand dedicated to industrial process, which entails design, execution and maintenance of its customers’ production facilities. Digitisation is gathering pace in industry and cybersecurity is becoming a major issue. Through this partnership, the VINCI Energies brands will propose comprehensive solutions responding to the challenge of digitisation while also factoring in cybersecurity aspects.
Sentryo will benefit from the network and know-how of Actemium and Axians, which can make a valuable contribution to their business offering and will intervene throughout projects, bringing expertise in audit, consulting, structuring and planning as well as implementation and operation.
Hervé Adam, Managing Director of VINCI Energies France said: “With this partnership, our teams will bring a targeted and customised response to the issues of industrial system reliability with a concern to improve their security, performance and competitiveness.”
Thierry Rouquet, CEO of Sentryo said: “For Sentryo, working with an industrial partner of VINCI Energies’ stature brings recognition of the relevance of its offering but, even more important, is a guarantee of the value we bring our customers, whether in the IT world or in the sphere of production.”
