A secure end-to-end Edge computing solution

By SixSq and CYSEC

SixSq, an Ekinops company, and CYSEC are thrilled to announce their partnership, combining SixSq’s expertise in providing edge computing solutions with CYSEC’s pioneering work in container security and trusted environments.

With edge computing and cyber security taking increasingly critical roles in operating IoTenvironments in critical infrastructures, companies recognise the  need for inclusive solutions.

This partnership represents a significant step towards simplifying edge computing security, giving customers a competitive advantage in a rapidly evolving technology landscape.

The combined solution builds on CYSEC’s ARCA Operating System, an immutable operating system with minimum attack surface and secure container orchestration. It is designed to contain system intrusions and prevent data compromise across on-premise, cloud, and edge
environments. The only way to modify this operating system is by deploying containers, a widely adopted, standardised and portable software format. Nuvla.io, SixSq’s edge computing B2B platform-as-a-service, enables a controlled and predictable workflow to ensure the right containerised apps are deployed at the right time and in the right place.

The platform is future-proof, container-native, cloud-neutral, and hardware-agnostic and includes a marketplace of containerised applications.
Together, SixSq and CYSEC ensure that IoT environments for critical infrastructures can now take full advantage of the flexibility of container technologies, without compromise on security. The solution seamlessly integrates with major cloud vendors and is certified for both ARM and x86 architectures, ensuring a trusted environment while safeguarding data
and intellectual property against attack propagation and confidentiality breaches.

We are excited about our partnership with CYSEC,” said Marc-Elian Begin, CEO and Co-founder at SixSq. “By combining SixSq’s Nuvla.io platform with CYSEC’s cutting-edge container native secured operating system, we aim to provide unparalleled edge computing security and peace of mind for organisations operating critical infrastructures.

CYSEC is thrilled to join forces with SixSq,” added Patrick Trinkler, CEO and Co-founder at CYSEC. “Our joint offering will empower organisations to harness the potential of edge computing and container technology in trusted environments.

About Cysec

CYSEC is a European data security company, based in Lausanne and Paris, providing a software solution in Confidential Computing, which enables companies to secure workloads on distributed infrastructures. The company provides a Trusted Execution Environment for containers and helps them to secure and deploy sensitive data on distributed architecture from Data center to the Cloud to the Edge.

CYSEC’s flagship solution, called «ARCA Trusted OS» is a hardened Linux-based operating system combined with a secure Kubernetes orchestrator providing a trusted runtime platform for containers. ARCA provides cryptographic functions, in order to protect keys, code and data, be it at rest, in transit and in use.


SixSq was founded in August 2007. The company provides the edge-to-cloud management platform Nuvla.io, which allows companies and institutions to deploy a secure and comprehensive edge and cloud strategy, while avoiding lock-in. Following the acquisition of SixSq by Ekinops in November 2021, SixSq is now an Ekinops Company. The NuvlaEdge software turns any x86 or ARM hardware platform into a smart edge device. Nuvla.io also provides a private app store, with the same convenience as the Apple App Store, but for deploying apps at the edge and in the cloud. As long as your app is containerised, you can deploy it with Nuvla in a click!
