SecNumCloud



  • SecNumCloud is a security benchmark for cloud players, released by the French National Cybersecurity Agency (ANSSI). It outlines a set of requirements to meet in order to receive qualification for a service, and the corresponding security visa. The SecNumCloud qualification is an essential requirement for ensuring that a web hosting solution meets ANSSI's recommendations in terms of security, sovereignty and trust. As a priority, it is aimed at administrative authorities, organisations that are of vital importance, and all economical players that process sensitive data.
  • This qualification is based on an extensive internal audit carried out by a SecNumCloud-qualified evaluation organisation, and an analysis of the audit conclusions by the ANSSI qualification board. Every year, a surveillance audit is carried out.
  • OVH is in the process of being qualified.


STAR self-assessment - Cloud Security Alliance



  • This initiative informs OVH customers that our cloud computing services are compliant with the CSA's best practices. It also details the controls that OVH has implemented to ensure that information systems remain secure
