Tixeo, the European leader in secure videoconferencing, announces the opening of a new office in Spain. Already present in France (headquarters) for more than 14 years and in Germany, the company confirms its intention to strengthen its presence throughout Europe through a multi-local approach.

Cybercrime and industrial espionage are a real scourge for companies in Europe and all over the world, and Spain is not different: in 2017, the Spanish National Cryptology Centre (assigned to the CNI) detected an average of 3000 cyber-incidents per month, a significant proportion of which were related to virtual espionage[1]. Videoconferencing, the use of which is constantly increasing within organizations, is also regularly the target of computer attacks, especially via the SIP or H.323 protocols. In addition, 90% of the market’s supply is subject to regulations outside the European Union. These editors are often forced by the authorities in their home countries to set up eavesdropping capabilities for systems that can be operated by malicious entities. Until now, no European, secure and sovereign offer has been available on the Spanish videoconferencing market.

Maximum security and next-generation collaboration for Spanish companies

Tixeo secure videoconferencing has been designed to meet the most stringent security and privacy requirements of organizations. The solution offers in particular a real end-to-end encrypted communication (video/audio/data) for multi-point videoconferencing and a link encryption between client and server.

Tixeo remains a professional video collaboration solution that facilitates the work of employees and optimizes their productivity with a wide range of collaboration tools (application and desktop sharing, remote computer control, end-to-end encrypted file transfer, etc.)

Located in Madrid, the new Tixeo office will be managed by Maribel Poyato under the responsibility of the co-founders, Renaud Ghia and Sébastien Jeanjean, based at the Montpellier headquarters (France). Maribel Poyato, a Spanish national, has many years of experience as a business development manager in Spain and at international level.

Renaud Ghia, Tixeo CEO, adds: «I am really pleased to announce the opening of a new Tixeo office in Madrid. Spain represents a very promising market for Tixeo: the entrepreneurial dynamics of cities such as Barcelona and Madrid remain very strong. This new step underlines Tixeo’s ambition to position itself more globally on the European videoconferencing market. Finally, let’s not forget that Spain is the main gateway for trade between Europe and Latin America».
