In a world where everybody is a target for cyberattacks and unsecure data transfers, data protection is more important than ever. In Security, governments, institutions and large global companies rely on Thales to design and deliver solutions that protect states, cities and critical infrastructures in an increasingly unpredictable world, with emerging cyber threats.
From helping cities and critical infrastructures to become safe and smart, to securing the global financial markets, protecting data and privacy and keeping security forces connected while on critical missions, we ensure that everyone can continue to share information, reap the benefits of a connected world and enjoy an enhanced quality of life, while staying safe and one step ahead of all forms of digital threat.
Thales protects over 80% of all online transactions in the world and secures the information systems of 19 of the 20 largest banks in the world. We also create cybersecurity solutions for 9 out of the 10 biggest internet giants and monitor the information systems of more than 100 customers.
Digital by Nature
Thales is building and developing its digital expertise in four major areas of technology:
Big data and data
We are a digital player by nature and maintain our leadership in the development of new technologies, providing customers with value-adding solutions to help them reap the rewards of the digital transformation.
Over 25,000 engineers, from a total headcount of 65,000 people, are working today on systems and software, ranging from broadband telecommunication satellites to ultra- secure communication systems for forces deployed in the theatre of operations, from air traffic management to in-flight connectivity, from rail signalling to security solutions for 80% of all electronic banking transactions worldwide.
Making the digital transition a success means not only mastering the technologies needed for connectivity and managing the risks and cyber threats inherent in today’s hyper connected world, but also leveraging the power of big data analytics and artificial intelligence to extract meaning and value from the huge volumes of data generated.
At the heart of the most critical missions, Thales, the European leader in cybersecurity, offers a complete range of services and solutions to support the digital transformation.
In a world that is increasingly fast-moving, unpredictable and full of opportunities, our customers are facing big challenges. In their daily operation, they not only rely on their Information Technology (IT), but on their Operational Technology (OT) as well. Today the OT/IoT systems have become a target for malicious hackers. That is why Thales combines both in its unique cybersecurity approach. As IT-OT-IoT integrator we know all about critical infrastructures and how to cyber secure them.
Anyone who wants to do business with the Dutch Defense, in any way, must comply with strict security requirements. This applies to all parties that have to deal with knowledge, information, equipment, goods and objects from the Ministry of Defense as well as the knowledge institutes and companies that work for the Ministry.
These so called General Security Requirements for Defense Orders (ABDO) were revised in 2017. More in particular, the requirements for cyber security have been expanded considerably. Thales is one of the contributors in the development of these requirements. But what does this mean for your organization?
As one of the world's largest suppliers of defense and cybersecurity services, we know all about ABDO and how to translate the security requirements to your organisation.
Thales has been selected by STATION F, the world’s largest startup campus in France, to manage its cybersecurity program.
By the year 2020, Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to comprise more than 30 billion connected devices. Such an explosion of data calls for specific skills with respect to data and analytics. But this also raises questions on how to cyber secure al this data.
Do you know how secure your datacenter is?
Do you have access to the log files of your data?
Do you have a clear understanding of the security of your data in the cloud?
Technology is becoming more and more complex. New technologies and solutions such as IoT and Cloud must be integrated with existing systems in order to realize efficient, effective and reliable IT solutions.
Do you know if your legacy systems have been exposed to a cyber-attack?
Do you know how cyber secure your legacy systems are?
Are you able to protect your legacy systems against cyber-attacks?
People vs Tech
People are often seen as the weakest link in cybersecurity. On one hand this means that a human error can cause great damage in the case of a cyber-attack. On the other, good cyber security relies on the best security specialists.
Do you have a clear understanding of the vulnerabilities in your IT landscape?
Do you have the skills on premise to cope with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning?
Is your organization able to respond properly to a cyber-attack?
