Companies want and need to provide their employees and external partners with a digital workplace that enables them to work flexibly and productively from anywhere. However, all security, compliance and regulatory requirements must be met. Role-based access control alone is no longer sufficient.

says Sascha Goeckel, Co-Founder and CEO at deviceTRUST.

The context-based security of the deviceTRUST solution allows companies to provide a modern digital workplace while dynamically considering the context such as location, status of security components, network connections, hardware used and user rights. Employees and external partners are thereby able to work productively with their digital workplaces and at the same time meet all security-compliance and regulatory requirements.

Over the past two years, we have won numerous customers from various industries and sizes. With deviceTRUST, it is now very easy for our customers to implement the requirements for e.g. flexible work or home office in a secure way.

Jens Schmidt, Co-Founder and CSO at deviceTRUST.

The investment will primarily be used for the further European expansion of our sales and marketing activities. In addition, we will also invest in our product development in order to further expand our existing technological lead.

adds Sascha Goeckel.

Dirk Pieper, Investment Manager at BM H Beteiligungs-Managementgesellschaft Hessen mbH “sees high growth potential in the highly dynamic market for digital workplaces in which deviceTRUST operates with its solution”.

Dr. Tanja Emmerling, Partner at HTGF, is convinced “that flexible work environments with high security standards and compliance requirements at the same time is a great opportunity for the solution of deviceTRUST”.
