LUXEMBOURG, 11 June 2018 – The OneLife Company S.A. (OneLife) and its parent company The OneLife Holding Sàrl published their annual report and accounts, confirming 2017 as a year of significant progress.

The Company reported a profit of EUR 5.9 million in 2017 (+34% compared to 2016).
Finally, the Company maintained its capital level throughout 2017 in accordance with the capital management policy and well above regulatory requirements. As at 31 December 2017, the Company’s solvency II ratio was 163%.

OneLife's #Success in Succession - Part II

Planning your family's future with complete peace of mind!
Luxembourg, 6 June 2018 - OneLife, in partnership with Scorpio, gives further insight into the challenges and opportunities faced by European HNWIs and their families as they seek to transfer their wealth effectively. Part II of OneLife's #Success in Succession study demonstrates how wealthy Europeans are looking to life assurance as a safe, flexible and efficient tool to protect, manage and transfer their wealth with complete peace of mind.
Following the fortunes of four wealthy families all living in different European countries and with different family situations and aspirations for their futures, Part II looks into the multiple benefits of what life assurance can offer as both an effective wealth planning tool and a solution to achieve success in succession. With unique features such as high levels of investor protection, flexibility in managing assets held within the policy, cross-border portability, certain tax advantages depending on the jurisdiction, OneLife's real-life case studies provide illustrations on how it works in practice - and across borders.
Part II follows on from the first part of the study launched in 2016. In total, Part I and II of Success in Succession cover family cases from Finland, France, Belgium, Sweden, Portugal, Spain and the UK through an extensive series of e-books and a succession checklist.
According to Antonio Corpas, CEO OneLife: "In today's world, it is key to plan for one's financial future. Increasing global mobility, complex family situations, diversification in the assets investors hold, all just some of the aspects of today’s modern life. Succession planning is important for the HNW and their families to help them safeguard their wealth, make it work for them during their lifetime and ensure that their heirs are enabled for the next generation. Life assurance is an effective solution. And it is this which we seek to demonstrate in Part II of our study, #Success in Succession".

OutSystems Takes Low-Code Security to the Next Level With Proactive Monitoring and Support for Cloud Environments

London, UK – 30th May, 2018 -- OutSystems, provider of the number one platform for low-code development, today announced the launch of OutSystems Sentry, a new security service for OutSystems cloud-based, Platform as a Service (PaaS) customers, providing proactive security monitoring, built-in redundancy, and 24x7 support for OutSystems customers.
Analysts predict that 2018 will see cloud adoption cross the 50 percent milestone. This means fewer private data centres and the dedicated staff and costs associated with maintaining them. That also means more sensitive data consolidated into public and private cloud environments, requiring stringent access controls, a security-first approach to recognising abnormal traffic patterns, and hyper-vigilance on the part of SOC teams.
 
As such, cloud environments are a tempting target for today’s bad actors, even though Gartner predicts that, through 2020, public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) workloads will suffer at least 60 percent fewer security incidents than those in traditional data centres. But external threats are just part of the security equation, particularly in multi-tenant cloud environments.
“Trust but verify,” has long been a truism in network security and OutSystems has extended that to the cloud with a new high-compliance cloud offering. OutSystems Sentry offers advanced intrusion detection from external threats, along with internal monitoring for potential access control issues and the proliferation of advanced persistent threats (APTs). In addition, SOC 2 Level II certification combined with OutSystems standing ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 certifications, ensures OutSystems Sentry meets the five Trust Services Principles of Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy.
“OutSystems customers expect and deserve the most stable environment for their applications, and providing that requires an assertive security stance from the infrastructure level down to each virtual machine,” said OutSystems Chief Information Security Officer, José Casinha. “There are already nearly 200 points of security built into the platform, but for those customers who need additional protection, we offer OutSystems Sentry. The combination of cloud-friendly, proactive security and compliance software and the experienced OutSystems Security Incident Response Team ensures our customers’ applications reside on the industry’s fastest, most secure, and stable cloud environment.”
OutSystems Sentry extends the rigorous security protections already in place on AWS cloud, along with the OutSystems 196+ points of security, and adds additional layers of protection afforded by the industry’s most advanced cloud-protection software and OutSystems own experienced team of security experts.
