  • proactive cyberdefense through: the advanced identification of security breaches and vulnerabilities, the detection and analysis of “low-noise” attack signals, and on-site crisis management.

General Manager and founder of Atheos Michel Van Den Berghe said, “We have constistently recorded strong growth since our incorporation in 2002. By joining Orange Business Services, we will benefit from its unique expertise of critical infrastructure to take us to the next level. Orange Cyberdefense offers a credible response to the security requirements of large companies and government agencies.”

Senior Executive Vice President at Orange Business Services Thierry Bonhomme said, “We are very excited to welcome the teams from Atheos; their high level of expertise and proven methods clearly add value to our services portfolio. Security is a critical concern for our customers, which means that the provision of robust security services has now become a strategic priority for Orange Business Services. With this acquisition, we are now the only European provider able to support companies implementing multidimensional protection strategies, and this significantly reinforces our commitment to customers to support them, as a trusted partner, in an increasingly digital world.”
