Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity protects companies and public institutions worldwide against cyberattacks. The company develops highly secure encryption products, next-generation firewalls, network traffic analytics and endpoint security software as leading-edge technical solutions for information and network security requirements.
The combined expertise of Gateprotect, Sirrix, Ipoque, and part of Rohde & Schwarz SIT is now concentrated under the brand of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity. Its directors are Ammar Alkassar (CEO) and Reik Hesselbarth (CFO). Alkassar was previously the CEO of security specialists Sirrix for ten years and spent several years as the director of Eurobits. Hesselbarth was the managing director of Ipoque.
The company’s portfolio comprises a range of reliable solutions for all-round protection in companies and authorities. From compact all-in-one products to individual solutions for critical infrastructures, the portfolio has received numerous awards and certifications. Firewalls and vulnerability scanners for business-critical web applications complete the company’s extensive portfolio. Central to the technology is a security by design approach, which aims to prevent cyberattacks proactively as opposed to reactively.
When asked where he sees the company in the future, Ammar Alkassar replies, “The market for IT and network security in Europe is still fragmented at present. There’s a lack of strong suppliers like those in the US and this is a challenge we want to address, so that Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will become one of the major solution providers in Europe. There are unique opportunities in combining the innovative capacity of start-ups with the secureness and infrastructure of a globally active and successful high-tech company.” Almost 450 highly motivated staff rise to this challenge every day at branches in Germany, France and Denmark. With its modern and forward-thinking portfolio, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity is ideally equipped.
