Luxembourg cybersecurity initiative SECURITYMADEIN.LU has announced that Encryption Europe is expanding with the addition of Paris-based company NTX Research.

NTX Research has become the eighth member of the industrial alliance, in the first quarter of 2020, following the integration of SECURITYMADEIN.LU, a national initiative of the Ministry of the Economy aimed at promoting and strengthening cybersecurity with the private sector and municipalities of Luxembourg.

NTX Research develops cryptographic technologies as well as other security solutions and software. The company brings its support to the development of Encryption Europe and its mission to promote the adoption of encryption technologies by European companies.

Pascal Thoniel, Founder and R&D Director of NTX Research, commented: "For us, joining this alliance was obvious and an opportunity. The alliance members each have their specific area of expertise, but they pursue the same goal: ensuring digital trust on the Internet. We believe in the group dynamics to publicize and adopt security technologies and solutions for the alliance members". 

Encryption Europe, an alliance of encryption small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), has welcomed the arrival of this new member, since it is part of its strategy to develop a network of international partners reportedly sharing similar values. Jean-Christophe Le Toquin, Secretary of Encryption Europe, explained: "NTX Research is a remarkable example of how SMEs can innovate in synergy with academic research. Attracting and supporting the development of companies like NTX Research is exactly what we hoped for when we established Encryption Europe".
