Leading Vendor from Germany - Secure Communication without any Lurkers

gateprotect is developing its software solutions at its domicile in Hamburg and has subjected itself to a self-commitment already years ago, warranting that only the customers have access to the information that passes their next generation firewalls. This is why gateprotect's products, which have been certified by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and honored with multiple international awards, stands out from competitors.

"As a German company and as a member of TeleTrust e.V., we are furthermore bound to the strict data protection rules of our country and have been sensitized very much to matters of data security".
