German security specialist will present innovative solution concept to the public sector
Hamburg, Germany. 10 September 2018 – Trust is the foundation to the e-government of the future. However, delivering public administration services can only be effective with secure communication between the authorities themselves and between authorities, businesses and citizens. The German PITS congress (short for public IT security) focuses on this topic from the perspective of the public sector. National IT managers and those on county and town levels as well as professionals from the armed forces, the police force, intelligence services and NATO will be at the event to meet scientists and IT security providers. They will be able to discuss the latest technologies along with opportunities and risks for their profession. The German security specialist Secucloud will be participating as a conference partner for the first time at the event, which takes place on 10 and 11 September at the Hotel Adlon in Berlin. By engaging with the conference, the company plans to raise awareness in the public sector about the benefits of a cloud-based approach to security.
The vulnerability of digital infrastructures is demonstrated by the frequent announcements of security incidents as well as by studies. For example, Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) recently found that just under 70 per cent of German companies and institutions had been victims of hacker attacks within the last two years – and almost half of them were successful.
Dennis Monner, CEO of Secucloud, comments: “The increasingly aggressive and professional tactics of cybercriminals, together with the growing threat situation on the internet, are pushing conventional security solutions to their limits. That’s why we’ve decided to adopt a completely different approach to security: we transfer security into the cloud, which is exactly where the dangers of modern cyberspace emerge. The PITS congress gives us the ideal opportunity to present this concept in more detail to the public sector.”
The Secucloud concept is based on the Elastic Cloud Security System (ECS2). It uses Global Cloud Intelligence technology to analyse users’ web traffic for harmful content and suspicious behaviour. If the solution detects any threats, it blocks the harmful data packets automatically before they reach the user’s device.
