secunet takes over bintec elmeg Security GmbH

[Essen/Germany, 5 July 2017] secunet Security Networks AG is further expanding its portfolio in the network monitoring and network security sector, and took over the Stuttgart-based company bintec elmeg Security GmbH with effect from July 1, 2017. With this acquisition, secunet will strengthen its team with additional expertise, and continue the development and expansion of its packetalarm product family, as well as the secunet snort solution which is based on those products.

bintec elmeg Security GmbH offers future-focused systems for recognising and avoiding attacks: the Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS), based on tried-and-tested packetalarm technology, has been developed specifically for the protection of large-scale networks. The IPS and IDS specialists will supplement the activities and product portfolio of the secunet Public Authorities division in a targeted way.

secunet has made a conscious decision to continue operating the current bintec elmeg Security site in Stuttgart, meaning that it now also has a presence in southwest Germany. This further highlights secunet’s focus on local customer service, and means that the company now operates eleven sites across Germany. In addition, it gives employees – as well as talented applicants – the opportunity to flexibly select their workplace to meet their needs.
