Viable Security – creating future-oriented security systems
Technical solutions related to security, privacy and reliability often fail to address actual market requirements, user needs and economic viability. As a consequence, many security technologies launched in recent years have been unsuccessful or have become orphaned technologies in companies where they are never used. This is why many enterprises are unable to profit from security technologies that would otherwise lead to considerable security improvements.
For us, “viable security” means solutions that are successful in the market and improve security when applied in practice. When creating such solutions, it is the developer’s job to focus on the requirements and real-world working environments of users. The viable security laboratory (VS Lab) supports developers in the evaluation and creation process, and helps companies identify and integrate viable security solutions. To achieve these objectives, the VS Lab features infrastructure that enables it to incorporate user perspectives, and thereby examine IT security technologies from a holistic point of view.
