Rohde & Schwarz consolidates its cybersecurity expertise

The electronics group combines its IT and network security subsidiaries in Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity GmbH. Ammar Alkassar and Reik Hesselbarth will be responsible for expanding this business field and developing the company's comprehensive portfolio of technically advanced solutions to meet tomorrow's needs. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will apply a new security-by-design technological concept to deliver proactive protection against outside attacks.

Rohde & Schwarz has been active in the field of IT security for over 20 years. In 2014 and 2015, the group enhanced its know-how by acquiring Adyton GmbH, gateprotect GmbH and Sirrix AG. Long-standing subsidiaries ipoque GmbH and Rohde & Schwarz SIT GmbH will continue to contribute to the portfolio with their expertise and solutions. The Munich-based electronics group will use the Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity brand to strengthen its position as a trusted European provider of first-class, high-tech solutions made in Germany. Existing cybersecurity expertise will be enhanced with outside impetus.

Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity offers a wide range of technologically leading solutions for information and network security. Highly secure encryption solutions, next-generation firewalls and software for network analysis and endpoint security protect enterprises and public institutions worldwide against espionage and cyberattacks. The award-winning IT security solutions made in Germany range from compact, all-in-one products to customized solutions for critical infrastructures. The development of trusted IT solutions focuses on the new security-by-design technological concept for preventing external attacks proactively instead of reactively.
