With genusecure Suite, authorities have a fully integrated software package that meets the highest security standards. The VPN Software Client genuconnect from genua enables automatic setup of a highly secure VPN connection followed by highly secure data transmission between laptops or tablets with Microsoft Windows 10 or 11 and an internal network belonging to the customer. Mobile devices are therefore secured against unauthorized access, regardless of the user's location. The solution delivers high security without compromising on performance, administrative effort or usability. Users work with the standard Windows interface without an additional layer. genuconnect can easily be scaled for infrastructures with more than 100,000 VPN clients. The solution is approved for classification levels German VS-NfD, NATO RESTRICTED, and RESTREINT UE/EU RESTRICTED. 

The hard drive encryption DiskEncrypt meets the BSI's requirements and was developed by Utimaco especially for German authorities and industries that are required to maintain secrecy. The sector-based hard drive encryption combines reliable partition encryption with simple user guidance and high data security, without reducing performance. It is approved for the classification level German VS-NfD, as well as the classification levels EU RESTRICTED and NATO RESTRICTED. 

The smart card middleware Nexus Personal Desktop Client offers users secure multi-factor authentication and digital signatures. It is very convenient to use and offers security tokens as well as features such as e-mail encryption.
