The two companies reaffirm their commercial alliance.
The companies, currently working on a project for La Caisse Nationale de Sécurité Sociale du Maroc (Moroccan Social Security), held the event "Presentation of PKI and digital certification solutions" in Casablanca on June 12.
Safelayer, market leader in PKI technology for digital identification and electronic signature, has consolidated a commercial alliance with Open.Net, a Moroccan company leader in IT services, to distribute and implement Safelayer’s KeyOne and TrustedX technology and products. As a result of the agreement, Open.Net becomes Safelayer’s first partner in Morocco and North Africa. The agreement will be extended in October with the opening of another office in Tunisia.
In accordance with the agreement reached, Safelayer will provide Open.Net with its technology, technical support, maintenance and training, while Open.Net will offer the end customer the integration, consulting and operating of these services, thereby expanding their range of security solutions.
The companies are already collaborating on a digital identification project for La Caisse Nationale de Sécurité Sociale du Maroc (Moroccan Social Security). Safelayer’s KeyOne technology will provide digital certificates for the online authentication required by users to access the Social Security portal and electronically sign the salary statements that firms send to the Social Security every month. The technology of Safelayer’s TrustedX platform will validate signatures and add the time stamp that enables long-term electronic signatures.
Broadly speaking, PKI technology ensures and guarantees the integrity, authenticity, confidentiality and non-repudiation of any electronic transaction, protecting information and giving electronic signatures the same legal value that a handwritten signature has today.
Safelayer’s range of KeyOne and TrustedX products offers a complete system for managing digital certificates and electronic signatures. It consists of: Registration and Certification Authority, Validation Entity, Timestamp Entity, and technology for integrating PKI in corporate environments and client posts. These solutions are based on market standards and allow for fast and secure integration and customisation in all existing systems.
In order to convey how electronic signatures and digital certification solutions can be used to take advantage of the power of technology in the information society to facilitate relations between the Public Administration, businesses and citizens, the two companies held the session "Presentation of PKI and Electronic Signature solutions" on June 12 in Casablanca, which attracted some 50 clients from the most representative Moroccan firms devoted to Banking, Insurance, Telecommunications, etc. Another session is planned for October to coincide with the opening of the new office in Tunisia.
During the event, Safelayer presented its electronic signature and identity solutions: KeyOne and TrustedX, as well as their applications in the cases of Bankinter and La Caisse Nationale de Sécurité Sociale du Maroc.
