The powerful potential of telework will only become apparent once the pandemic is over

FORUM – by Renaud Ghia, Tixeo CEO

“Telework”, one of the words that we will have heard a lot this year and which has become part of our daily lives with the health crisis.

Some will say that there will be no turning back, that teleworking will become more and more common, others will say that it was not a choice, that this new working method was imposed and that therefore companies will soon forget it and return to their office habits and to this culture of presenteeism that many of them find difficult to abandon. They are all right.

Tixeo Home Office

But if the year 2020 has often been a real springboard for this way of working, companies must today detach themselves from this first experience linked to the pandemic and look further. Imagine a new world in which each individual will be able to choose of his or her own free will whether or not he or she wishes to be attached to a fixed office when his or her job allows it and the social interactions he or she wishes to have or not. Realise the range of possibilities that telework opens up, both for their organisation and for society as a whole.

The opportunity to choose a nomadic lifestyle

The vision of teleworking that companies have today is limited to allowing their employees to work from home, on condition that they give them the address of their workplace for insurance purposes, and that they make sure they have a good internet connection so that they can collaborate easily. Teleworkers are still rather limited in their travel possibilities, as some companies, even in advance of teleworking, for example, require them to stay in the same time zone as the team in France so as not to complicate exchanges, or not to go too far away from the head office in case they have to go to the office for appointments. This particular year did not encourage companies to imagine teleworking in the long term, partly because some people may have felt isolated. But wouldn’t it be rather the general feeling of the population, whose lives are punctuated by many restrictions and long, confined months, rather than being away from their colleagues?

With the many tools available on the market today, the arrival of 5G, and the mentalities that will change, working on the other side of the world or in the French countryside will no longer be a science fiction world. This is already the case in large groups with offices all over the world and where teams in Dubai are exchanging with others in the United States, and it’s going very well.

But it is possible to go even further, to imagine being able to change location whenever you want, to no longer be attached to an office in a particular city, to be able to work for a while in the Canary Islands and then trade the heat of the islands for the freezing cold of Canada the following year, or the month after that. With the innovations that will accelerate, companies will, for example, be able to hold meetings with people’s holograms live to make the exchanges less pixelated and more palpable. No longer having to live in a specific place in the world for work would profoundly change our society.

Towards a more flexible society and a rethought urban model

Attitudes are indeed changing, and will make regulations evolve as much as possible while ensuring the safety of employees. The compliance of their accommodation with technical and health standards to be able to work at a distance should not go against telework. They will be able to choose the conditions under which they wish to work and the environment that suits them best, whether it is within four walls or on a beach, as long as the work is done.

In a society where administration and deadlines dictate the pace of daily life, it is time to think differently. In a more flexible world, the nomadic school would be more and more developed with the support and supervision of the CNED, children could learn wherever they are and from any device. A more flexible school system would allow the younger generations to be more open to the world.

We would see a transformation in the use of physical offices from workplaces to meeting places that allow people to get together whenever they want. Many more city dwellers would move to the countryside in search of a better quality of life, creating a real urban exodus. But what would become of the deserted cities and business districts already disrupted by the health crisis?

Greener cities with less traffic and more available housing, repopulated countryside, growth of small local shops, healthier lifestyles, teleworking in the next decade could move our society in the right direction.

This year full of twists and changes in our society is only the beginning of a new era. Even if it is not suitable to all professions, teleworking is one of the formidable means of reshaping the way our society functions, while respecting the needs of each individual. Today we are still in a state of emergency, but we must give telework a chance once the pandemic is over.

Return to teleworking: how to get back on a good footing?

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

FORUM – by Renaud Ghia, Tixeo CEO

By announcing a reconfinement during his speech on Wednesday 28 October, Emmanuel Macron has, in fact, relaunched the massive use of teleworking to fight against the spread of the coronavirus. It is once again compulsory for workers, whether employees or self-employed, who can carry out their activities remotely.

While for some companies the rapid introduction of telework last March was a crash test that they would prefer not to repeat, for others it was a revelation.

At the beginning of the autumn, some companies have indeed decided to extend the experience, on a one-off or regular basis, while 70% of employees preferred or were encouraged to return to the office 5 days out of 5, as shown by the Dares survey published on 26 October 2020, which questioned companies with 10 or more employees in the non-agricultural private sector between 30 September and 13 October 2020, on their situation and the employment conditions of the workforce in September.

For companies that had never teleworked before, this organisation could have been complicated and difficult to set up: equipping employees with remote collaboration tools, organising video conferences, maintaining team cohesion, managing to trust, not controlling too much… so many parameters to take into account for managers who wanted everything to go as smoothly as possible. The priority for the companies was to dematerialise the workspace and make remote collaboration solutions available. Most of them managed to do this with varying degrees of agility, which now allows them to concentrate on managing their teams.

However, the main element that most managers have tended to neglect is that adopting a teleworking organisation requires them to maintain their habits and the daily links that unite the members of a team.

In order to telework effectively without employees losing their bearings, it is essential to continue to apply the rules and habits of the office, especially those related to working hours by inviting them to join and leave a virtual open-space for example, or to connect to their computer at set times as they would do at the office. In this way, the boundary between personal and professional life is respected, while formalising the right to disconnection.

Staying connected to avoid isolation and strengthen team cohesion…

According to an Ifop perception study on the impact of the crisis on all dimensions of occupational health carried out on a representative sample of 3,504 employees of private sector companies from 19 June to 15 July 2020 by Malakoff Humanis’ Comptoir de la nouvelle entreprise, one employee in five declared feeling more isolated during the crisis.

Indeed, many people felt abandoned, demotivated and alone in front of their computers. A single meeting in the morning or evening to take stock of the situation with their team is not enough to maintain team cohesion and only isolates employees the rest of the time; this is the main mistake that most companies have made in the sudden deployment of their teleworking organisation. It is important to maintain continuous contact throughout the day to avoid this feeling of loneliness and maintain a sense of belonging to the group. The company is a place of exchange and social relations that must be preserved in this new organisation, all the more so if teleworking is to be used in the long term.

Just like the coffee break, employees need informal and convivial moments of discussion to motivate and support each other and to maintain a team spirit. A virtual open-space where employees can stay connected and exchange ideas throughout the day is one example of solutions to enable employees to be together, even if they are far away.

…thanks to an adapted and secure video collaboration solution

For some companies, the choice of collaboration tools during containment had to be made in a hurry and without really taking the time to identify their needs and problems. This may, for example, explain the problems of isolation or the computer attacks that have been amplified during this critical period.

In order to regain a feeling close to that provided by a real work environment, it is essential to choose a videoconferencing tool that is reliable, easy to use, simple to deploy, and equipped with numerous collaboration functionalities, such as office and document sharing, file transfer or instant messaging.

The exponential increase in attacks and the bad practices observed in teleworking during containment took most French IT managers by surprise, according to the study “When the World stayed Home” published by Tanium and conducted among more than a thousand managers (CEO, CIO/DSI, CTO) of medium and large companies in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and France (250 people) during the weeks of containment at the height of the global pandemic.

The implementation of telework must not hide the risks that this type of collaboration can pose to companies, such as industrial espionage. It is essential to be regularly informed about the protection of one’s information system. When employees are spread out in different locations, security must be optimal and be the subject of particular attention. A secure VPN is essential, as well as a company-specific cloud.

Both for reasons of compliance with the RGPD and for the security of the company and that of its customers, it is advisable to deploy the most reliable and secure solutions on the market, particularly those labelled by the French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems (ANSSI).  Such a strategy offers protection for sensitive data, which represent a prime target for hackers because of their economic value.

Similarly, the confidentiality of communications must not be neglected. Solutions that offer end-to-end encryption of communications (video, audio and data) regardless of the number of employees connected are to be favoured, as they only allow the sender and receiver(s) to decrypt the data without any decryption phase between the correspondents. It must prevent any electronic eavesdropping, including by telecommunications and Internet access providers and even by the publisher of videoconferencing solutions. Thus, no one is able to access the encryption keys needed to decrypt the conversation.

The spring confinement period was an initial test for companies, allowing them to take a step back from the good practices to adopt in such circumstances. Given this experience, they will be able to face the difficult period ahead with more expertise and mastery in the organisation of telework. Once the days are better, it would not be surprising if some of them adopt this model permanently.

End-to-end encryption, guaranteeing digital sovereignty

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

 FORUM – by Renaud Ghia, Tixeo CEO

Encouraged by the health crisis, teleworking and the massive use of digital collaboration tools (such as videoconferencing) have enabled many companies to continue their business. This unprecedented situation has also made it easier to shed light on the problems linked to the confidentiality of information exchanged and has provoked a real craze for the use of end-to-end encryption in online meetings.

In this context, accentuated by the economic crisis, protection against industrial espionage has become essential for companies. End-to-end encryption is the only guarantee against eavesdropping. But what is this mechanism, the definition of which is unfortunately too often distorted?

Tixeo end-to-end encryption

War against industrial espionage necessarily requires real end-to-end encryption

End-to-end encryption of videoconferences is a data transmission process (video, audio, data) that only allows the transmitter and the receiver(s) to decrypt this data without any decryption phase between the correspondents. It must prevent any electronic eavesdropping, including by telecommunications providers, Internet access providers and even by the publisher of videoconferencing solutions. Thus, no one is able to access the encryption keys needed to decrypt the conversation.

Unfortunately, and especially since the beginning of the health crisis, too many videoconferencing editors claim end-to-end encryption, but in the end only encrypt the flows passing between the user and the communication server! They can thus very easily access the decrypted data when it is passing through their servers. In addition, most of the time, these publishers are subject to foreign legislation that requires them to obtain the users’ encryption keys from the authorities upon request. Under these conditions, the level of security is far from that announced.

Fortunately, it is still possible in France to access reliable solutions offering effective protection against any spying attempt. To help companies see more clearly, organizations such as the ANSSI (National Cybersecurity Agency of France) can guide them in their choice. An organization opting for an ANSSI-labeled end-to-end encryption mechanism is always guaranteed to use a reliable and perfectly secure solution

Independence and digital sovereignty: the two bulwarks of data protection

Above and beyond the health crisis, true end-to-end encryption helps to guarantee true independence for companies.In Europe, such a choice is a prerequisite for the digital sovereignty of our industries and economies. Today, it is vital to think European when it comes to setting up our digital ecosystem. Technology, R&D, support and, of course, hosting must be developed and consumed locally to prevent any risk of dependence on non-European powers. But the influences are still very strong and continue to weigh heavily… In fact, just a few days ago, the organizers of the Paris Olympic Games in 2024 chose China’s Ali Baba solution for their Cloud. The battle is far from being won.

Vigilance is still called for when it comes to end-to-end encryption: it is always useful to remember this in a context where some powers (governments, authorities, etc.) sometimes seek to limit its use in order to have ever greater control over communication flows in the name of security and the fight against terrorism. Some countries, such as Australia, require publishers to integrate backdoors to help authorities intercept and read messages sent by suspects. Still, it is important to remember that even by prohibiting end-to-end encryption, malicious individuals will still be able to circumvent the rules to achieve their ends.

Prohibiting this mechanism will in no way solve the problems linked to terrorism, but it will increasingly expose European industry to the plundering of its data, which will have more to lose than to gain. In France, even if some would be tempted to outlaw this mechanism, the legislation does not impose any constraints on publishers. This legal context is clearly favorable to encryption technologies and thus guarantees their effectiveness in the fight against industrial espionage.

Tixeo, the only encrypted end-to-end video-collaboration solution by default and qualified by the ANSSI

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

Paris, June 22nd, 2020 – With a 3000% growth in the number of its users between March 17th and May 31st, Tixeo – European leader in secure video collaboration – is the only player whose technology is labeled by ANSSI to offer for more than 5 years a collaboration tool for which end-to-end encryption is not an additional option.  

The health crisis in Europe in recent months has made it possible to democratise the practice of telework and remote collaboration and to promote new uses. Webinars, conferences and even city councils have taken place remotely thanks to videoconferencing solutions. Also very useful in the medical field, this technology has made it possible to carry out teleconsultations and thus limit the spread of Covid-19. This practice will continue to be widely used after the crisis, and has raised the awareness of organizations and the general public regarding security and privacy in online meetings. The massive use of these tools and the new issues arising from them are redefining the context of the videoconferencing market.

Tixeo adapts to new user’s needs

To meet the new needs expressed during containment, Tixeo offers its users a new “Conference” mode, allowing a speaker to lead a speech, a round table or to organize a debate in front of an assembly of spectators connected to the system.

This feature was requested by many customers and complements the other two existing collaboration modes:

  • « Meeting » mode: standard videoconferencing mode
  • «Fusion» mode: advanced video collaboration mode in which participants appear as video bubbles and can create or join a group by selecting the attendees they wish to discuss with. This mode of collaboration is perfectly adapted to teleworking, war rooms or remote training.

Des solutions hautement sécurisées…

Where old and new market players are just starting to think about security and privacy issues, Tixeo has more than 5 years of expertise in designing innovative and highly secure video collaboration solutions that take into account security at all stages of the conception (Secure by design).

Tixeo’s 100% French technology is CSPN certified and qualified since 2017 by the National Cybersecurity Agency of France (ANSSI). In any situation and regardless of the number of participants, the privacy of the communications is guaranteed. Indeed, Tixeo’s unique architecture allows, even in multipoint meetings, a real end-to-end encryption (from client to client) of audio, video & data streams through a server (End-to-End encryption AES 256), while keeping a great adaptability to network variations.

«Our competitors are timidly starting to think about end-to-end encryption as an option for their users, while Tixeo manages to stay one step ahead in the secure video collaboration market. You can’t develop in a few weeks a really secure solution, such an important subject cannot be improvised and requires real expertise, experience and certifications proving the reliability of the solutions. », explains Renaud Ghia, CEO of Tixeo.

As a French and independent company that designs and develops its technology in France and whose servers are also hosted in France, Tixeo is committed to defending digital independence and sovereignty, and offers a technology that is not subject to foreign regulations.

… that respond to privacy issues in a wide range of sectors

For clear safety issues, defense, armament, or industry actors use Tixeo to collaborate efficiently from a distance, while keeping their exchanges confidential. Companies face the same issues during their board meetings, technical, R&D or commercial meetings, and industrial espionage is one of the main threats for them. The same is true in telemedicine, where the confidentiality of information is essential. Tixeo is the perfect answer to the mobility, safety and privacy needs expressed by users, whatever the domain.

How to deploy telework in times of crisis? 10 tips to quickly virtualize your workspace

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

There are situations in which companies are required to make temporary use of telework. In the event of a major health crisis, major social movements or exceptional weather events, teams must organize themselves urgently. This can be a complicated task for those who have never experienced telework before.

Beyond the regulatory aspect and the tools to be used, setting up such an organisation implies changing one’s view of how to manage one’s teams.

If you need to quickly generalize telework, here are 10 recommendations that will allow you to create simply and quickly your virtual open-space.

Tixeo Virtaul OpenSpace

Download this guide (.pdf)

1. Define a legal framework

In France, under normal circumstances, the set-up of telework in a company requires a company charter or agreement. An agreement between an employee and his employer is nevertheless sufficient by law to establish telework; the French Labour Code gives the possibility to formalise this agreement freely, by any oral or written means. An amendment to the employment contract is not necessary.
Note: in case of force majeure, as in the case of an epidemic, the law can impose telework on the company and its employees.

2. Provide the right collaboration tools

The priority is first of all the implementation of a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) allowing all your employees to access the company’s local network via a secure internet connection. The members of your team must also have remote access to your company’s mail server via webmail. Finally, the installation of a file exchange platform can also be considered.
To these tools can be added asynchronous communication solutions (wiki, company blogs, etc.).

3. Select suitable video collaboration solution

Another priority in a remote relationship between employees is to regain a feeling close to that provided by a real working environment. That’s why it’s essential that you use a reliable video conferencing tool that’s simple to deploy and has many collaboration features, such as desktop and document sharing, file transfer and instant messaging. To go further, Tixeo offers its advanced video collaboration feature, TixeoFusion, which allows you to combine multiple focus groups within a single video collaboration space. The Tixeo solution is quick to install and provides a realistic experience close to a face-to-face meeting.

4. Remain connected permanently to your virtual open-space

Keeping in touch is essential for your teams as they embark on teleworking. In order to regain the interactions you had in your offices it is therefore advisable to consider a continuous audiovisual relationship within your teams. The TixeoFusion video collaboration mode meets this need and optimizes communication between different team members, creating a true virtual open-space. In the same videoconference, it is possible to talk only to some participants without disturbing others, and even choose to work in isolation while being connected to your team.

5. Don’t change your habits

Once your workspace is dematerialized, it is important to continue to apply the rules and habits of the office, especially those related to working hours. In this context, enforce rights to disconnection and privacy. In fact, invite your employees to join and leave your virtual open-space at set times, just as you would do in the office.

6. Trust your employee

Control your employees in real time: Is you kidding ? Trust is the cornerstone of successful collaboration, especially when it comes to telecommuting. By generalizing teleworking, you necessarily give more autonomy to your team members who are often more involved in their mission and in the life of the company.

7. Communicate

Even if your time is limited, it is essential to explain to your teams how you are going to collaborate remotely: communicate with pedagogy about the future organization, train on the new tools and, above all, stay tuned. You should also tell your customers and partners in advance about your new way of working, which they can easily adapt to and even adopt.

Videoconference Tixeo

8. Promote a friendly atmosphere

The company is a place of exchange and social relations that you must absolutely preserve in your new organization. Every morning, when you arrive, don’t hesitate to meet as you would around the coffee machine. Throughout the day, leave time for free and friendly discussions. By maintaining such a relationship, you will avoid the feeling of isolation that your employees might experience in a remote organization, especially if it is imposed by a crisis situation.

9. Always protect the confidentiality of data and communications

The quick introduction of telework should not hide the risks that this type of collaboration can pose to companies. When employees are spread out in different locations, security must be optimal and be the subject of particular attention. It is therefore imperative to deploy the most reliable solutions on the market. As stated before, a secure VPN is essential as well as a company-specific cloud. Similarly, the confidentiality of communications must not be ignored. For instance, Tixeo’s video collaboration solution integrates end-to-end encryption of communications (video, audio and data) whatever the number of connected employees. It is the only video conferencing solution on the market to be certified and qualified by the French National Cybersecurity Agency (ANSSI).

https://www.ssi.gouv.fr/uploads/2018/01/catalogue_solutions_qualifiees_anssi.pdf

10. Analyse the feedback from your company and your teams

Once the crisis period is over, it can be interesting to draw up a report on the temporary implementation of this remote organisation and to analyse the feedback from your teams. During this phase of teleworking, your employees will not have lost the time associated with transport and will even gain in comfort and quality of life, which will lead to a significant reduction in their stress. It is likely that this will result in increased productivity gains, also due to better communication within your organisation. This is one of the main reasons why an increasing number of companies are virtualizing their entire open-space and thus generalizing teleworking. By permanently adopting this practice, organizations can enjoy other benefits such as reduced structural costs (office rentals, travel expenses), reduced sick leave and staff turnover, and the ability to recruit over a wide geographical area.

 


TixeoFusion’s advanced video collaboration feature, allows to organize several independent discussion within the same videoconference space. Attendees can communicate securely within the same space without disturbing attendees outside their group. Interactions are optimized and allow large teams to collaborate remotely. TixeoFusion provides a feeling close to a face-to-face meeting and thus arouses the commitment of your employees while guaranteeing complete privacy of communications (video, audio & data). For a project group or to manage a team of teleworkers, TixeoFusion replaces the classic open-space on a daily basis.

Tixeo launches the new release of its secure videoconferencing software and improves the user experience and interoperability of its solution

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

The new release of Tixeo’s secure video conferencing software client (V.15) is now available for all users: it includes the call mode and improves its interoperability through an upgrade of its TixeoGateway.

Tixeo visioconferencing

The new Tixeo client offers a smoother design thanks to its rounded corners

With this new version, users first note a few changes in the interface, which displays smoother, rounder contours.

Tixeo videoconferencing - Call mode

But the user experience is especially enhanced by the implementation of the call mode which replaces the organization of instant meetings. With this feature, using Tixeo videoconferencing becomes more spontaneous and is organized in the same way as a phone call. Therefore, a meeting activated in call mode no more needs to include the concepts of planning and duration of videoconferences.

 

Of course, there is always the possibility of scheduling a meeting in advance, determining its subject, date, time and duration.

In any case, communications (audio, video and data) always benefit from Tixeo’s security mechanisms, including end-to-end encryption, even in multipoint communication.

Finally, this release integrates significant improvements in the TixeoGateway gateway, allowing a better compatibility with legacy H.323/SIP videoconferencing systems.

Tixeo launches TixeoFusion and revolutionizes remote collaboration

Olivier AZAN NewsEN

Tixeo, the European leader in secure videoconferencing, launches TixeoFusion, its new advanced collaboration feature. By offering this innovation to all its users, Tixeo offers a revolutionary approach to videoconferencing and concretely optimizes the interactions between team members within in the same collaboration space.

The use of videoconferencing is not always easy for large teams managing complex projects. Some situations require perfect synchronization and clear and structured communication between participants.

TixeoFusion addresses these issues and offers a unique and secure video collaboration space in which participants appear as video bubbles. These bubbles can merge, generating independent discussion groups within the same meeting. Each collaborator can therefore create or join a group by selecting the attendees he wishes to discuss with. A simple click is all it takes to leave or get a participant out of a group. Each group is assigned a different colour, making it easier to identify them. It is of course possible not to join any group: this allows you to have an overview of the videos of the other collaborators without being disturbed by their conversation.

This organization provides a realistic feeling close to a face-to-face meeting and thus encourages employee engagement. The feature also removes some drawbacks such as mixing subjects when everyone talks at the same time.

A new way of collaboration for new use-cases

For a project group or to manage a team of teleworkers, TixeoFusion replaces the classic open-space on a daily basis. This mode of collaboration is also perfectly adapted to crisis rooms and allows to globally dirve operations while offering targeted management in several distinct action groups. Finally, for workshops or distance learning, this feature allows the creating smaller work groups and gives trainers the ability to easily answer individual requests.

TixeoFusion mode complements the many collaboration features offered by Tixeo and also provides a high level of security. Tixeo is currently the only videoconferencing technology certified and qualified by ANSSI[1], it integrates end-to-end encryption of communications (audio, video, and data) in multipoint videoconferencing as well as link encryption between client and server. The solution can be tested free of charge for 30 days on www.tixeo.com.
