DATA PROTECTION AS A COMPETIVE ADVANTAGE
IT service provider digitronic and IT-Concepts Automotive implement two-factor authentication at automotive supplier Minda KTSN.
Suppliers and development partners are obliged to take special care in handling their customers' data. Those companies who can prove that they are protecting their IT systems from unauthorized access have a competitive advantage. Aside from data encryption, Minda KTSN Plastic Solutions GmbH & Co. KG uses this advantage in the form of two-factor authentication.
The products of Minda KTSN Plastic Solutions, a subsidiary of Indian Ashok Minda Group, can be found in numerous cars around the world. The automotive supplier with its headquarters in Pirna, Saxony, and other locations in Poland, Mexico and China develops and produces plastic components and technical assemblies for vehicle interiors. The company covers the entire process chain - from the first design draft to tool construction and production.
The external and internal communication required for this requires both secure transmission paths and secure access to stored data. “Especially the data exchange between our development department and the customer must be reliably protected. Logging on to the IT systems with a password that is changed every 90 days is no longer sufficient,” says Alexander Pietschmann, responsible for corporate IT. He explains further: “We need access to our PCs and notebooks that is protected by a two-factor authentication. For this task, digitronic computersysteme GmbH from Chemnitz was recommended to us. The company, together with its partner IT-Concepts Automotive, which was responsible for the partner acceptance at the OEM,did a great job in advising us and competently helped us with the implementation of the suggested solution.“

SECOND ATTENDANCE AT RSA CONFERENCE 2018 IN SAN FRANCISCO EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS OF DIGITRONIC® COMPUTERSYSTEME GMBH
For the second time after 2016, digitronic® was part of the “German Pavilion”, a joint booth that had been initiated by TeleTrusT, the Federal association of IT security. The RSA Conference in San Francisco is regarded as the leading international trade fair for IT security.
“IT Security made in Germany” was presented for the 17th time in a row with a joint exhibition sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and designed by TeleTrusT.
The event organisers were not the only ones who were able to report a positive conclusion, as the number of visitors reached more than 50,000 people. Matthias Kirchhoff, manager of digitronic® had some positive remarks as well: “After our experiences in 2016, expectations in the run-up were very high, not only with regard to good discussions, but also with regard to promising potential new customers. The sheer number of visitors did not only lead to some promising client contacts within the US, but also in the United Arab Emirates, Chile and Singapore.”
On 16th April 2018, Info Security Products Guide, the leading guide in terms of information security research and advice, awarded the All-in-One Compliance-Package with the Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Award® in Gold in the category GDPR (DSGVO). This award honours providers of cyber security and information technologies whose progressive and groundbreaking products and solutions help set new standards in all areas of security.
“We are proud to be recognised as an industry player whose All-In-One Compliance-Package has been selected as the winner by the Info Security Products Guide," said Matthias Kirchhoff, Managing Director of digitronic®.
“The All-In-One Compliance-Package that we presented at the fair combines network drive encryption with a strong two-factor authentication and thus provides a high level of security to protect confidential data from unauthorised access. Furthermore, it supports a certified authentication in a variety of ways – from RFID cards and active memory cards (card or USB token) to the newly developed login solution via the use of a smartphone with an integrated RVSCS (remote virtual smart card container service).”
“By extending the token engine, the central RVSCS service will provide applications such as Secure Logon™ 2.0 or HiCrypt™ 2.0 with the convenience of using cryptographic functions for secure two-factor authentication even without USB tokens or smart cards. In doing so, a smart medium, for example a smartphone, can be defined as the second factor in no time at all,” says Peter Liebing, Deputy Head of Marketing & Sales.
As a part of TeleTrusT’s events during the RSA conference, there was also a German-US dialogue on the topic of “Industry 4.0 & IOT changes - Security Challenges”. Additionally, there was a TeleTrusT/Symantec Security Solution Showcase, where German companies presented their ideas in regard to futuristic topics. Consequently, digitronic® gave a presentation on the topic “From one human identity to millions of digital identities without security?”, which met with a great response from the audience.
Conclusion: “A small step into the US market, but a giant leap for digitronic®“.

The backbone in a communicational jungle
Amidst e-mail, Facebook and others, technology by digitronic® has proven itself as a solid component in the police’s communicational jungle for the last 25 years. One cornerstone of the police’s tactical man-agement work is the delivery of transnational news - including a “guaranteed receipt” - within defined deadlines that are dependent on their urgency. Due to their high political and social topicality, news is delivered in a “fake-news-proof” way. digitronic® has proven to be a steady development and operations partner as well as a provider that assumes full responsibility for a police procedure. With the implementa-tion of the project “Georedundanz”, the default risk of the formal communication system EPOST 810 has been significantly reduced over the last few years. In 2018, digitronic® will continue to face the rapid de-velopment of software technologies and will additionally meet user requirements that arise from the generational change of users. In September of 2017, there was a first user meeting that was attended by representatives of three federal states who took a peek at the future with digitronic® engineers.
MEDICA 2017 – Presentation on Data Security in the Healthcare Sector
Lately, EU-DSGVO, KRITIS and ISO27001 have been some of the most discussed terms that will have a serious impact on the design of IT security in healthcare facilities. One main concern is the necessity of implementing measures that effectively prevent the misuse of sensitive data.
During the MEDICA conference in Düsseldorf, our manager Matthias Kirchhoff presented ways in which technical measures of sensitive data encryption and secure authentication can be put into practice. The main focus of his presentation in front of intrigued industry professionals was to explain a way in which the diverse and complex requirements in audits and certifications can be met by choosing a pragmatic “back to the roots” approach combined with state of the art technology. One concrete example utilising the combination of two solutions offered by digitronic demonstrated how the confidentiality of data can be guaranteed via encryption on networks and via an additional protection of the access to encrypted data with a certified “security key”.
IT security does not end outside company grounds
On 15.11.2017, Chemnitz-based ECL Euro Courier Logistics and the digitronic® TeleTrust regional branch welcomed participants to a joint event:
“IT security does not end outside company grounds - Going from data security to transport security”
During the course of his presentation on “IT security”, P. Liebing, head of sales and marketing at digitronic®, informed the participants about current cyber attacks. He gave some examples on the topic of “employees as risk factors”, he pointed out the EU-DSGVO that will be put into effect on 25.5.2018, and he talked about the practice of audits in the automotive supply industry.
In particular, digitronic® wants to thank S. Fanghänel, Managing Director of ECL, who was not only a remarkable host, but who also drew attention to internal risk factors in companies via the use of many real-life examples.
You can find more information on both companies under the following links:

European Data Protection Regulation - what does this mean for companies?
The European Data Protection Regulation will be put into effect on 25th May 2018. It will apply in all EU member states and it will lead to drastic changes in the German data protection law. The regulation will have an impact on citizens, the economy, the government and administrations. Companies will be given a period of two years during which they have to implement the new regulation. But what exactly does this mean?
On 13.11.2017, the Nuremberg Initiative for the Communications Industry and the IHK Nuremberg invited more than 150 guests to take part in a cooperative event. Naturally, NuP Informationssysteme and digitronic® computersysteme gmbh also participated in this event with a joint presentation.
Below you can find basic information about yesterday’s event as well as the presentations of all speakers:
MEDICA 2017 - World Forum for Medicine
Chemnitz, 7th November 2017
‘Protecting confidential data is indispensable to the healthcare sector.’ digitronic® will be in Düsseldorf from 13th–16th November 2017
digitronic® will be attending MEDICA in Düsseldorf for the first time according to the motto ‘Active, user-friendly IT security is indispensable to the healthcare sector’. Digitalisation is leading to profound changes in the healthcare sector. The legal requirements continue to evolve. Organisations classified as critical infrastructure have to act by January 2019 in order to comply with the Critical Infrastructure Protection (KRITIS) initiative, for instance. And in May 2018, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force. Compliance with these data protection regulations and legally binding industry standards demands more IT security measures in the healthcare sector as well.
Our All-In-One Security Packages support hospitals and other medical facilities in better complying with legal requirements. The technical basis for our packages is our award-winning, team-enabled network drive encryption paired with our 2-factor authentication process.
Our consulting and comprehensive services are designed to ensure compliance with IT security standards (ISO/IEC 27002) for medical networks. In addition, we meet the demand for a convenient login process with single sign-on solutions. We put together innovative All-In-One Security Packages for our customers, partners and sector professionals that address the needs specific to their industry.

futureSAX Interview with Matthias Kirchhoff from digitronic®
Chemnitz, September 28th 2017
“Security ‘Made in Germany’ will prevail in all industries.” - futureSAX interview with Matthias Kirchhoff of digitronic computersysteme gmbh
The company digitronic computersysteme gmbh is something akin to an “old acquaintance”, as the Chemnitz-based firm has already successfully taken part in many futureSAX competitions over the years. One example is their success in the race for the 2017 Saxon State Prize for Innovation 2017, where they placed among the top ten companies. In this interview, manager Matthias Kirchhoff tells us where this innovative energy comes from and what the advantages of Secure Logon™ 2.0 are.
Digital Padlock Ensures Safety - Press release ITConcepts / digitronic®
Wolfsburg / Chemnitz, September 28th 2017
The life of data thieves just got harder, as another specialist in the field of IT encryption has joined Wolfburg’s ITConcepts Automotive as a partner. By doing so, digitronic® closes an important loophole - for the benefit of the customer.
Data theft – not under our watch
Operating procedures are digitally displayed, handled and saved in all companies. Every employee has access to them. Quite often, the highly sensitive data is not always retrieved by authorised personnel. But is there really a way to secure this data from being stolen by unauthorised persons? In that case, the only help is a kind of digital padlock” that reliably encrypts the data and only gives access to authorised personnel. ITConcepts Automotive and digitronic® can provide this security. “Our experts have the necessary and certified know-how,” says Gernot Joswig, authorised officer at ITConcepts Automotive. “This way, we make sure that we are able to advise you in terms of IT security in a focused and comprehensive manner. In order to focus on the technical implementation, we consult experts and then work together on a customised solution – for the benefit of our shared customers!”

19th Innovation Conference 2017 – digitronic® was attending!
Chemnitz, September 5th 2017
On the occasion of the award ceremony for the Saxon State Prize for Innovation 2017, the futureSAX Innovation Summit took place at the Festspielhaus Hellerau on 28th August 2017. For the 19th time, the Saxon State Prize for Innovation honors pioneering ideas and inventions of Saxon companies which have launched new products, services, production processes or business models.
The award ceremony, which was accompanied by, among others, Martin Dulig, Minister of State for Economic Affairs, Labor and Transport, was a complete success.
In the show area, digitronic® presented the innovative strength of its 3rd generation 2-factor authentication solution Secure Logon™ 2.0 in various live demonstrations.
The login process on the PC is again supplemented by using a smartphone as proof of authorization. “Ten years ago, we demonstrated the registration on the PC with a Siemens S55 mobile phone – but the market did not take the innovation.”, said Matthias Kirchhoff, one of the founders and managing directors of digitronic®. Now it is time to use intelligent security elements for the use of various application scenarios such as logon, encryption, single-sign-on, VPN, signature, locking systems, time recording etc.
Secure Logon™ 2.0 combines “ownership” and “knowledge” into a secure and easy-to-use solution. The possession of a non-forgeable “security key” – such as a key holder, a smart card or a “prepared smartphone” on one side and the knowledge of a PIN on the other side result in a significant increase in security while simplifying usage.
After 2013, for the second time, the digitronic® team was able to place itself within the top 10 of the best innovations of the Saxon State Prize for Innovation.
The conscientious protection of digital data is gaining more and more attention in companies – certainly due to the influence of the requirement of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will apply from May 2018.
Secure Logon ™ 2.0 nominated for the Saxon State Prize for Innovation 2017
Chemnitz, 15th May 2017
With its submitted innovation digitronic® is one of the nominees of this year's Saxon State Prize for Innovation 2017 and reaches the second round of valuation. This is a great success for our team and the development of "Secure Logon ™ 2.0".

Chemnitz, 28th November 2016
Risk management is an important part of each successful business strategy.
Which risks do we have to expect? How to prepare for them? How does a launch of an effective risk management looks like?
Cyber risks are becoming more and more threatening. Theft of data, industrial espionage, employee manipulation and patent violation are just some examples, which affected companies have to face. But how is it possible to protect companies in an effective way?

digitronic® lays down another milestone in the field of compliance-ready data security
Chemnitz, 08th July 2016
- The most modern 2-factor-authentication even w/o PKI
- Secure Logon™ 2.0 a “convenience-sensation” for administrators
The use of weak passwords offers attackers an “easy target” in the IT-system of any company.
If one forces an increase in the complexity and frequency of change technologically, the “frustration” of the users in everyday operation will increase. The cost of support required to re-set passwords also increases dramatically.
With the new development of Secure Logon™ 2.0 along with today‘s market release digitronic® resolves this conflict proactively: Unique and complex passwords are securely stored on a digitronic-SecurityToken. Instead of complex passwords one only needs to enter a PIN to authenticate an account on a PC, a network drive or a Remote Desktop Connection (using RDP). This results in a considerable savings of time and therefore costs.
Both the storage and the sharing of multiple identities using CRED-UI are available as a “convenience sensation” for administrators, since this can be done without having to install Secure Logon™ 2.0 on the target systems.
digitronic® has fever pitch!
Chemnitz, 5th July 2016
Not only at UEFA Euro 2016 the ball got rolling, but also in Leipzig at the RoboCup. Scientists, pupils and students are meeting the challenge to score goals in different categories and on four days of competition.
RoboCup made it from a small nerdy convention to a professional competition in the field of robotics and automation. Thanks to futureSAX, Matthias Kirchhoff, CEO of digitronic®, was not able to present his football skills, but to show his experience in automation. MyCapp™ (one confidential app - all devices) provides a confidential and secure ‘biotope’ to communicate with the company’s infrastructure at an unsecure mobile device. With this technique there is the possibility to exchange critical data, like pictures for quality assurance, data of control programs or staff information.
In the following discussion Matthias Kirchhoff faced the questions and ideas of the audience. Even if digitronic® was not represented as footballer, so MyCapp™ is a go under the confidentiality Apps.
Living innovation – digitronic® is part of futureSAX innovation summit 2016

TNS Infratest protects sensitive data in specialised areas
Anyone who works with sensitive information and personal data is subject to very strict laws and internal security guidelines. TNS Infratest generates annually untold millions of bytes of this sort of data and has been one of the few ISO 27001 certified companies in Germany since 2013. In order to be able to guarantee its global customers even more security, the Munich-based market and innovation researchers depend on the encryption tool HiCrypt.
With TNS Infratest, everything started with radio listener research and developed in the course of the last 60 years into one of the best-known and most respected institutes for scientific and economic market and opinion research.
Along with general data, TNS Infratest works primarily with sensitive infromation, both on the customer-side and on the participant-side. For that reason data security is a very important topic. At the end of 2013 TNS Infratest received the ISO 27001 Certification from TÜV Süd for its exceptionally good information security management.
“Starting at a certain degree of confidentiality, customers do not just demand sophisticated security measures against external threats, but the potential data access must also remain restricted internally to the authorised persons who are responsible for the project,” commented Dirk Wocke, externally assigned Information Security Officer with TNS Infratest. “For that reason it was decisive that HiCrypt made it possible for the department to use the software independently,” Wocke also declared.
Security is not a matter for hype
By expanding with the 2-factor-authentication and the easy operation, HiCrypt integrated itself into the daily work with TNS Infratest.
So that the user experience continues to be as positive as it has been, the opinion researchers in Munich have concluded a software maintenance contract for HiCrypt. This will continue to provide them with important updates and expansions and they will profit from the support of the developer in Chemnitz when emergencies arise.
“We are very satisfied with HiCrypt and are planning to expand our collaboration in area of high-security projects. The need will likely increase in the future,” says Wocke.

“Softwarefreaks met with Mechanical Engineers” Hannover Expo 2016
The Hannover Trade Fair 2016 provided a platform for a total of 190,000 professionals who attended to get acquainted and make contacts in the industry at the German, European and international levels. More than 30%* of the attendees came from abroad.
Matthias Kirchhoff, futureSAX Alumni, head and initiator of its digitronic® Softwarefreaks, also used the opportunity to present the MyCapp™- Technology (one confidential app- all devices) to a wide audience at the Young Tech Enterprise stage and present “predictive maintenance” during the Guided Tours.
On the “Sachsen Abend”, or “Evening for Saxony” he thanked the employees of futureSAX and Saxony’s State Minister for Economic Affairs, Employment and Transport, Martin Dulig, for the “futureSAX Platform” as a “Stage for Innovation in Saxony” and urged consistent, continued work with the same team.
Appearing as a start-up innovation in the futureSAX Start-up Corner, digitronic® dared for the first time to put the focus on the first step of the “mechanical engineer” in the direction of MyCapp™, which will have an extraordinary significance in the context of Industry 4.0. Matthias Kirchhoff is convinced that “…after more than 20 years of exhibiting at this trade fair, at CeBIT - the direct conversations with future industry clients were the most impressive experience at the trade fair.”
In the framework of an introductory phase for MyCapp™, digitronic® is looking for interested parties who need mobile, platform-independent process connections and will participate in the costs of ongoing development.

With “Software freaks looking for mechanical engineers” digitronic® shows off the innovative power of a start-up in the Start-up Corner at the Hannover Messe.
Thomas is just now putting the last part on the prototype, fastening it at the stress point and turns the material to harder plastic. “Now it will meet the hardness requirements,” he mutters and sends the model to the 3D-printer in the factory hall. Then Thomas puts on the Augmented-Reality-Goggles, shuts down the e MyCapp™-App and puts his tablet down –just in time: Because he’s ready to spend time with his family. Thomas really appreciates the flexibility in his workplace.
Work at the home office and in Industry 4.0 could soon look like this- or similar to this.
But how can the communications route between Thomas’ Tablet and the 3D- printer in his employers’ factory workshop, be hardened to be break-in proof? How does one determine whether or not Thomas’ draft model was altered en route to the 3D-printer? How can one make sure that competing companies don’t get access to sensitive machine data?
And what role does MyCapp™ play in this?
On April 28th and 29th, 2016 Matthias Kirchhoff, the CEO of digitronic® and both head and motor of his team of highly qualified „Freaks“, will provide answers to these urgent questions in the futureSAX-Start-up Corner (Hall 3, Booth B06)!
With MyCapp™ digitronic® presents its unique concept for the integration of mobile end-devices while at the same time assuring digital confidentiality in industry-4.0-Llandscapes. MyCapp™ transposes confidentiality into a logical level that is independent of the device and operating system. Mechanical engineers should be able to remain mechanical engineers, to use a confidential environment and able to still adapt the perspective personally. Security-critical programming can be omitted.
Are you a product developer, entrepreneur or mechanical engineer like Thomas…?
Then come to the Start-Up Stage (Hall 3, Booth A01) at the Hannover Exhibition Centre on April 28th, 2016 from 12:30 to 13:00 as well as on April 29th, 2016 from 12:30 to 13:00 and enter into productive dialogue with Matthias Kirchhoff, discussing how one gets these ideas “off the ground” as quickly as possible.
Impressive participation at the RSA Conference in San Francisco - digitronic® computersysteme gmbh has received very positive feedback
digitronic® participated for the first time on the “German Pavilion” in San Francisco, a joint stand at the exhibition initiated by the German Association for IT-Security. The RSA in San Francisco is recognised as an international, leading exhibition for IT-Security. “IT-Security” made in Germany" was represented for the the 15th consecutive year in a jointly organised exhibition promoted by the German Ministry for Economics and Energy and TeleTrusT.
The exhibition organisers were not the only ones who registered a positive return e.g. an increase in the number of vistors from 32,000 to 38,000 compared to last year, but also Matthias Kirchhoff, CEO from digitronic®: “We had a lot of very good discussions with other exhibitors from the joint German stand before the exhibition which increased our already positive anticipation for this event. What we actually experienced when we were there totally exceeded what we had envisaged and expected from such an event. The enormous increase in the number of visitors also therefore highlighted the prominent position of such an exhibition with regard to international competition.
Intensive professional discussions were held on each of the five conference days and very promising contacts were created with new customers. What is particularly important for us Germans is that we could see how interested the many visitors were in backdoor free, all-in-one compliance solutions with team encoding and 2-factor authentication. In addition, the prototype of the MyCapp™- Confidentiality - APP really generated positive feedback from the visitors.

Presentation "mobile terminals in the production field - MyCapp™ an utopia?" - M. Kirchhoff, CEO of digitronic® - in the frame program at the forum Chemnitz 2020 on 21. May 2015
Chemnitz, May 8th, 2015: Presentation "mobile terminals in the production field - MyCapp™ an utopia?"
Mobile terminals have become an integral part in the professional context: Complex contexts are illustrated by means of tablet when advising citizens, clients or patients, with smartphones photos are generated and shared. Herewith, access to the company's own IT structure is a basic requirement. In addition, numerous individual use cases exist, which are characterized by specific needs of companies and employees.
In this context, the principle BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) gains in relevance whereupon private mobile terminals such as laptops, tablets or smartphones are integrated in the companies’ networks. In the production background, we find nowadays similar assignments of tasks. Mobile devices shall be used, if possible, independent of operating systems and device manufacturers as a secure "extended arm" of the output process efficiently. This procedure is cost-efficient, environmentally sustainable and brings more comfort and flexibility to the companies. It has however at the same time the essential disadvantage that those security standards generally do not apply for any device that in company environments is considered as absolutely necessary.

2015 IT INDUSTRY AWARD - MyCapp™ is one of the best innovations in the IT industry.
Chemnitz, April 15th, 2015: 2015 IT INDUSTRY AWARD - MyCapp™ is one of the best innovations in the IT industry.
Huber Verlag für Neue Medien GmbH awarded for the tenth time the INDUSTRY AWARD to innovative and advanced industrial companies. The award recognizes outstanding German-speaking companies once a year, which rise to the current global challenges in the industry with especially smart and beneficial products and business strategies. MyCapp™ could score again in time for the start of the Hannover fair. "Congratulations, your product has convinced and belongs in the category "IT & software solutions for the industry" to the best", it was said last Monday in an e-mail. A well-known expert jury of professors, scientists, industry experts and journalists examined also this year all entries on their technological, economic, environmental or social benefits. "The fact that within a few weeks we have been given the second award, is an indication of the high degree of innovation of solutions coming from our house," says Peter Liebing.
Innovation Award IT 2015 - MyCapp™ impressed and belongs to the best
The Saxon State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport visited digitronic® at the CeBIT 2015.
An innovation to cap it all!
At Security Plaza at this year’s CeBIT in Hannover, digitronic will be celebrating the premiere of MyCapp, an app that relocates digital privacy to a logical level not dependent on specific devices.
Although once viewed with suspicion in business circles, it’s now difficult to imagine daily working life without mobile end devices. However, access to internal corporate IT structures, particularly while maintaining security standards, is a major challenge for administrators. Added to that, the concept of BYOD (bring your own device) is becoming increasingly relevant; after all, private end devices are now expected to support the same security standards that have long been considered absolutely indispensable in the corporate environment.
Nonetheless, some people are wary of BYOD as they feel the security risk cannot be completely eliminated. But now, at this year’s CeBIT in Hannover, the MyCapp project from digitronic is set to quash preconceptions like these once and for all. MyCapp relocates digital privacy to a logical level that is not dependent on the device or operating system. Because companies can also expand the functionality of the app, personal devices can be used securely and without restriction for work tasks while maintaining employees’ privacy. Thanks to this solution, there’s no longer any need to juggle two expensive devices at the same time!
