Living quality, acting sustainably

Our thinking and approach has always been driven by quality. Not just in our products, but in all our processes and services. That is why we have voluntarily committed ourselves to shaping quality formally, actively, comprehensively and continuously. We have the results of these efforts regularly audited by independent auditors. Our quality management system is certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001.

These points are particularly important to us:

Customer Satisfaction

A partnership-based relationship and a consistent focus on the requirements and needs of our customers is the basis of all our thinking, doing and acting. Long-standing business relationships reflect the satisfaction of our customers - we have been supporting numerous authorities and companies in IT security matters for over 20 years.

Quality Management

We constantly adapt our quality management to changing conditions. We derive specific targets for our processes from the company's objectives. This encourages and motivates our executives and all employees to take responsibility for achieving our goals and to identify with the company's core values and understanding of quality.

Continuous improvement

Questioning the status quo, making the good even better: We are never satisfied with what we have achieved and systematically implement improvements. In this way, we continuously increase the quality and competitiveness of our products and services and anticipate future needs today.

Stakeholder Policy

We are committed to taking appropriate account of the requirements of internal and external stakeholders. We comply with official and legal requirements at all times.

Consistent environmental protection without ifs and buts

We consider climate-neutral business operations to be one of the primary goals of all sustainable business activities. We protect and preserve our environment by ensuring the efficient use of energy and resources throughout our entire value chain. We strive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to a minimum and prefer renewable energy sources to fossil fuels. 

We only pollute water, soil and air to the extent that is absolutely necessary and justifiable after exercising reasonable care and common sense. This includes avoiding waste and handling chemicals responsibly. We fulfill all binding obligations, including applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

To continuously improve our environmental protection efforts, we apply an environmental management system that meets international standards.
