Transparent and comprehensible processes and software solutions have proven to rule out those approaches based on obscurity and black boxes. I have followed this in my scientific career and successfully applied these base concepts for numerous customers in the past decade.
With founding a company exclusively dedicated to managing commercial Free Software projects for our customers already in 1999, I gained comprehensive experience in setting up and operating successful structures. Structures of which only half is IT technologies. Of equal importance is to form well-concerted teams.
I co-authored a number of Free Software products, several of them in the area of IT security. In the past years these activities increasingly centered on network security and then were transformed into the foundation for the Greenbone business concept and products.
Let's make this world a little bit better place to live in. Before you can secure it, you have to understand how it works and how to break it. Then, the best security solution can be delivered based on experience and knowledge. No matter what language you speak, what culture you live in, the problems are always the same, and I have seen most of the IT security challenges at large.
I have first-hand experience as an entrepreneur in Europe, USA and Asia and am now helping build Greenbone to position the company as a world-class provider of network security scanning solutions. I co-authored various security auditing tools and made them available as free software published under GPL.
I draw on 15 years of experience in IT security, specializing in the security of wireless / wired data and communications networks, forensic analysis, auditing and active networking. I'm often featured in industry publications, such as Wired and RFID Journal and also participate actively in conferences such as Hackers at Large, Hacking in Progress, Network World, Internet World, Linux World (USA/Europe), Linux Day Luxembourg, Linux Tag, CeBIT and Blackhat Briefings.
Security in IT works best as a resilient, thought-out process; because the promise of absolute security provided by a single product can never be kept. IT-Security is connected to so many mechanisms and tasks in a business that solutions must be developed as a component, as part of a comprehensive approach.
Greenbone's company and product philosophy reflects this idea. Together with our technology and sales partners, we offer a solution that helps our customers to establish and operate a resilient IT-Security process in their own businesses.
Marketing and Sales are my passion, as it is Security of Information Systems. Since more than 20 years I'm marketing IT solutions for large and medium sized enterprises globally, in different positions. I've lived in Dubai from 2002 to 2007, and achieved my CISSP certificate there.
