Bochum, Germany (PRWEB) January 02, 2015
EU community project IPACSO (Innovation Framework for Privacy and Cyber Security Market Opportunities) honoured IT security companies and technologies from all over Europe for the first time this year. In the "Innovative Cyber Security Company" category, the jury consisting of researchers and companies named G DATA as the most innovative IT security provider in Europe. In their reasoning, the jurors commended the creative inventiveness and the quick reactions to new cyber threats. According to IPACSO, a prime example of this is G DATA's technological response to the Bad-USB threat scenario. The German IT security company was the only provider worldwide to immediately develop an effective security tool: USB Keyboard Guard. The European Commission supports and promotes IPACSO's activities.
"We have made it our mission to provide companies and end users with the best technologies for fending off cyber attacks," says Walter Schumann, CSO of G DATA Software AG. "In the fight against online criminals it is absolutely essential to quickly and flexibly respond to new attack scenarios, and that is what distinguishes G DATA as an IT security provider. We are therefore extremely pleased to have won the IPACSO award, which recognises our company's innovativeness."
The "Innovation Framework for Privacy and Cyber Security Market Opportunities" (IPACSO) is a joint project by the Waterford Institute of Technology and the Deutsches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (DIW), which is supported by the European Commission. The aim of the organisation is to promote the development of innovative cyber security and data protection. With its annual award ceremony, IPACSO honours outstanding solutions, projects and companies in IT security.
