Data security

IT environments have become more complex, now including the public cloud, internal data centers and a multitude of devices such as IoT sensors, robots and remote servers. At Synox, we help companies, local authorities and end-users to see more clearly, and to use their data with complete peace of mind.

Secure your data

The exploitation of IoT data relies in part on storage and hosting. All this data is sensitive and valuable, so it’s fundamental to opt for a reliable IoT platform and hosting solution.

At Synox, we master all the services required for a successful IoT project. Our offer covers bothOn-Premise hosting, for total control, and solutions on a private or public cloud, offering flexibility and performance.

IoT cybersecurity

Data security is crucial at every stage of an IoT project, from data collection to storage, hosting and retrieval.

The choice of network infrastructure is decisive in guaranteeing the necessary level of security and dealing with potential risks.

Protecting sensitive data is a major concern in the IoT field, given the constant threats and potential malicious attacks.

At Synox, to meet these challenges, we support our customers in securing data with our SoSECURE#IoT solution, designed to ensure infrastructure and data cybersecurity.

How does private APN data security work?

A Private APN (Access Point Name) is an essential solution for establishing secure communication between an organization’s information system and remote terminals such as PCs, business equipment and sensors.

This approach eliminates data transmission via the Internet, opting instead for a secure tunnel. Thanks to this tunnel, devices can interconnect and exchange securely with company servers, simulating a physical presence on the local network.

The implementation of this Private APN considerably reduces the risks of hacking, data overruns and equipment downtime.

Private AFN for data security

At Synox, we have deployed private Access Point Names (APNs) in collaboration with our operator and multi-operator suppliers such as Orange, Bouygues, SFR, Sierra Wireless and Eseye.

Each modem is configured with a Private APN, requiring a login and password to access the telecom operator’s core network.

Data is then routed in encrypted form only between the operator’s core network and the Synox platforms, bypassing the Internet.

Your data hosted by Synox

At Synox, as defined in our Data Protection Policy, stored data remains the property of the customer.

The Uptime Institute has defined the “Tier” concept for data centers, which is now widely adopted around the world. The classification includes Tier I, Tier II, Tier III and Tier IV levels. A data center must be certified by this institute to claim a Tier level. The DataCenter that hosts Synox’s internal infrastructure and the servers used for the services delivered by Synox is of TIER IV type (the highest level of availability and security). The datacenter of this hosting company is spread over two separate sites interconnected with each other.

The 4 types of data security

Data encryption

Encryption keys transform data into an unreadable format that can only be read by authorized users. File and database encryption solutions make content unreadable, with security key management.

Data deletion

More secure than simple deletion, erasure uses software to completely remove data, rendering it unrecoverable on any storage device.

Data masking

Organizations mask data to enable application development or training with real data, masking personally identifiable information (PII) for compliance.

Indeed, digital technologies are generating new opportunities for value creation, giving the factories of the future in Industry 4. 0 the chance to not only optimize their production systems, but also review their positioning in the value chain.

In 1990, industry represented 22% of French GDP. Today it represents only 11%.

Whatever their size or sector of activity, all traditional industries are or will be impacted by these innovative digital technologies. They can count, beyond the change management, on numerous advantages such as the improvement of internal processes, the improvement of productivity, the reduction of costs, an acceleration of the time-to-market,…

According to Accenture’s 2014 study, 97% of large companies believe that digital innovation is critical or important to their future performance.

Data resilience

Resilience measures an organization’s ability to recover from hardware failure, power loss or other events that disrupt data access. Rapid recovery is essential to minimize the impact.

Data management

At Synox, we attach particular importance to the management and security of private and sensitive data. Each business has its own constraints, challenges and specificities when it comes to managing its business data.

With our expert partners in sectors such as transport, industry and healthcare, we work on data ethics. From data collection, processing and hosting, right through to data exploitation.

Internally, we have a DPO (Délégué à la Protection des Données) who is also an IoT Responsible referent to continually improve our processes and guarantee that data is processed securely and with the least possible impact on the environment.

Our steps to be more responsible

We are aware that digital technology is having an ever-greater impact on the use of the planet’s resources. That’s why we’re in the process of obtaining certification for INR’s Responsible Digital. We achieved level 1 certification in 2024 and are working towards level 2 by the end of 2025.
