In a context of digital transformation which impacts businesses but also individuals, LuxTrust, which was founded in Luxembourg more than 13 years ago, aims at providing trusted and secure environments to citizens and enterprises. The IT One team recently met with Pascal Rogiest, CEO of LuxTrust, to discuss the vision of the expert in security and data, his company's latest collaborations – notably with the ICT expert and fellow company EBRC (European Business Reliance Centre), headquartered in Luxembourg –, but also the pioneering role of Luxembourg and the development of the country's digital ecosystem.
"LuxTrust was created as an initiative of the government of Luxembourg, backed with several national banks. Our main mission was to provide tools to the entire active population to manage digital identities – through a secure banking access and an electronic signature –, which we did", starts Pascal Rogiest. He also highlights that since the implementation of the eIDAS – Electronic IDentification Authentication and trust Services – a couple of years ago in Europe, his company has opened its doors to a wider European market and is now seen as a trusted and quality service provider, not only in Luxembourg, but also over the Old Continent. LuxTrust is therefore known for its tokens which allow a secure connection to online banking accounts, its mobile declinations but as well as its legally-valued electronic signature offer. The latter has been a key element for LuxTrust for the past two years, with the mission to provide an integrated solution allowing the digitalization of entire processes within organizations and institutions. "Replacing paper with digital requires entire platforms where authentication, security and signature are some of the main ingredients of a digital process which must be implemented end-to-end," the CEO adds.
