Software startup deviceTRUST receives seed funding through High-Tech Gründerfonds

Brensbach - August 22, 2017 - deviceTRUST’s software enables companies to implement flexible and mobile workplaces secure within the existing company IT.

The IT Startup deviceTRUST provides enterprises with a central platform to meet all existing and new security, compliance and regulatory requirements when accessing company data, applications and resources at any time. For this purpose, deviceTRUST determines the necessary information and makes it available to the existing IT management solutions via its central platform.

This enables employees to access the company data and applications at any time, from any location and from various devices. Information such as the location, the hardware used, the status of the security components, the network connections and the users’ privileges are taken into account. Often the role of the employee in the company is no longer sufficient for access control.

Jens Schmidt, Chief Sales Officer at deviceTRUST “Our software can be implemented rapidly, requires no additional infrastructure and can be integrated with all existing IT management solutions. This guarantees our customers a fast return of investment.”

First customers within the HealthCare and Automotive sectors successfully use deviceTRUST to meet their requirements.

“The HTGF investment will be used for further product development and to convince and win further customers in the DACH region and beyond” says Sascha Goeckel, Chief Executive Officer at deviceTRUST.

Dr. Tanja Emmerling, Senior Investment Manager 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.”
