(PRESS RELEASE) PARIS, 5-June-2024 — /EuropaWire/ — In a groundbreaking development, Christel Heydemann, CEO of Orange, unveiled the launch of Orange Cybersecure, a cutting-edge cybersecurity solution set to debut on June 6th. Leveraging the unparalleled expertise of Orange Cyberdefense, this solution promises unparalleled protection against internet and telephone fraud, addressing a pressing need amidst the escalating cyber threat landscape.

Orange Cybersecure is positioned as a pioneering initiative, aiming to democratize cybersecurity by making it accessible to all. With the surge in cyber attacks impacting both businesses and individuals, there’s a growing urgency for comprehensive protection against digital risks, particularly in France. Startling statistics reveal that a significant proportion of French citizens feel vulnerable to cyber threats, with phishing incidents alone accounting for a considerable portion of digital fraud cases.

Recognizing cybersecurity as a collective responsibility, Orange has taken the initiative to offer a user-friendly yet robust solution accessible to everyone, irrespective of their service provider. The cornerstone of this offering lies in two levels of protection:

Firstly, the Orange Cybersecure portal introduces a participative platform for scrutinizing suspicious links, enabling users to verify the legitimacy of emails, text messages, or websites effortlessly. Powered by an AI-driven learning algorithm, this portal fosters a community-driven approach to combat everyday cyber threats, with experts swiftly verifying and updating the database to fortify defenses collectively.

For Orange and Sosh customers seeking comprehensive protection, Orange Cybersecure offers a subscription-based pack for €7 per month, delivering peace of mind through advanced cybersecurity features. This pack extends protection to up to 10 devices in a household, shielding against an array of threats ranging from internet scams to identity theft. Moreover, customers benefit from dedicated support from Cyber specialists, available round the clock to address any concerns or queries.

As Orange Cyberdefense continues to solidify its stature as a leading cybersecurity player globally, Orange Cybersecure represents a pivotal milestone in extending its expertise to the broader public in France. With plans for progressive rollout across Europe, Orange is poised to reinforce its cyber offerings for both enterprise and consumer markets, aligning with its Lead the Future strategic plan to establish Orange Cyberdefense as a cornerstone of cybersecurity across European and African markets.
