PROSTEP AG is committed to improved IT security

Darmstadt, April 2016 – PROSTEP AG has joined the German non-profit IT Security Association (TeleTrusT) and will be contributing its experience developing security-related software applications to the competence network. The Darmstadt-headquartered consulting and software company can now use the "IT Security made in Germany" quality seal awarded by TeleTrusT for its software solutions. In this context, PROSTEP reiterated its promise to provide trustworthy IT security solutions that do not contain any "backdoors", i.e. hidden points of access, to develop its IT security-related research and development exclusively in Germany and to meet the requirements of German laws as regards data protection.

TeleTrusT is an interdisciplinary competence network whose objective is improving IT security. It was founded in 1989 and is made up of national and international members from industry, administration, consulting and research as well as partner organizations involved in addressing security-related issues. The competence network advises legislators on issues relating to IT security, certifies IT security experts and IT solutions and, with the TeleTrusT European Bridge CA (EBCA), provides a network of equal public key infrastructures.

"Our joining the association shows just how seriously we take the threats posed to IT security," said Dr. Rainer Bugow, Head of Technology at PROSTEP AG, commenting on the step. "IT security no longer merely means protecting intellectual property. The increasing level of interconnection between products and systems via the Internet of Things means that almost every area of life is exposed to potential riskes resuting from inadequate IT security."
