Bull and Bee Ware sign a technology partnership agreement to secure critical transactions.

Posted on 31 May 2011 by Pierre Picard

Bull, a European leader in mission-critical digital systems, and Bee Ware, a software publisher specializing in security for Web applications, have announced a technology partnership that guarantees interoperability between Bull’s CRYPT2Pay™ offering and i-Suite from Bee Ware.

By combining their know-how, Bull and Bee Ware are responding to the issues of securing critical and transactional Web data flows, and enabling businesses to comply with security regulations, most notably the PCI-DSS rules governing payments systems.

When Internet users connect to sensitive Web applications, like on-line banking or e-commerce systems, they need an absolute guarantee that the site is authentic and the data being sent or received is confidential. By combining their respective technologies – i-Suite, a platform featuring a Web application firewall, and CRYPT2Pay, a Hardware Security Module (HSM) for key storage and secure utilization – Bee Ware and Bull are meeting two key requirements of sensitive Web architectures:

  • Audit and analysis of data flows, to prevent weaknesses
  • Key protection, so as to avoid the risk of Web sites being hijacked and confidential information being disclosed.

CRYPT2Pay is a hardware device designed to secure withdrawals and payments made using a credit or private card, whether contactless or not, as well as all the operations carried out in a payments systems center. CRYPT2Pay is certified by international banking institutions (Visa, MasterCard International, American Express Global Network Services, the Groupement des Cartes Bancaires).

i-Suite allows businesses to speed up, optimize and secure http(s):// data flows. Featuring a graphical flow-handling editor, i-Suite is very easy to administer and facilitates infrastructure operation, implementation and maintenance.

The combination of our two solutions has already been successfully implemented in the banking sector, to secure e-commerce infrastructures,” commented Antoine Villepelet, Director of Security Operations at Bull. “We are delighted with this partnership, which will allow us to extend this expertise to other segments of the sensitive Web transaction market.”
