Whether for the energy and water supply or in the health sector: the functionality of many of the systems on which the population relies in daily life run digitally.
This ensures fast communication but also makes the systems the target of cyber attacks. Operators of critical infrastructure therefore need to verify in accordance with § 8a BSIG that their IT security is state of the art and is, therefore, optimally protected.
Above all, precise monitoring of the connections between internal and external communication networks is essential here. The products from genua ensure a secure IT landscape in critical infrastructures by, among other things, protecting data against unauthorized access by means of unique firewalls. Our IT security applications, which are produced exclusively in Germany, are certified with Common Criteria (CC) EAL 4+.
IT Security Made in Germany
For us, the label "IT Security Made in Germany" means combining quality, performance and service at a world-class level with a company culture whose pillars are integrity, customer orientation, sustainability and loyalty to location.
genua meets the highest national and international security standards, a fact documented by, among other things, certificates and approvals for the restricted data sector. Our VPN solutions, for example, are approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) up to the German classification level RESTRICTED (Classified – For official use only).

With the genucenter as a central management station, we administrate all remote maintenance elements from a central point. (…) The remote maintenance solution is simple and secure. Even if a laptop belonging to an external service technician is stolen, the laptop will make it only as far as the parking lot in front of the building. The interior of the building itself remains secure. This is security by default.

Our customers from the utilities sector have high security requirements and require availabilities of up to 99.9 percent for central applications. (…) With a two-level firewall, we achieve the security level and availability that we need to guarantee in order to satisfy the high demands of our customers from the utilities sector.
Holger Maschke, Director System & Infrastructure Services, arvato Systems perdata gmbh
Through the two-fold inspection with content control, the firewall offers strong protection. As a result, we’ve never had security problems. Even repeated penetration tests performed against the firewall by independent experts on our behalf or on behalf of security-aware customers were unable to reveal any weaknesses.

Certification of the components in accordance with the BSI protection profile is no longer required. But after having very good experiences with the components from genua, we continue to do so. This has proven to be very effective. These are complete appliances with hardware and software components built to match. Security and functionality are already optimized for the increased requirements. The genua company brings a great deal of experience to the table in this regard.
