Our good work is recognized and valued at these times. That is both acknowledgment and praise for us. And that is also what we mean with "indevis – Security in a connected world."

Company history

Since its founding, indevis has exhibited an impressive evolution.  From its visionary beginnings to becoming a leading solutions as well as managed security services provider (MSSP), the path for indevis has been a long one. The company concentrated on specialization in the areas of IT security and network technology in the same year it started operation. As its first cloud security service, the indevis authentication solution based on RSA SecurID was born – today, our business division "Managed Security Service Providing (MSSP)" has been certified by the Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI, the German Federal Office for Information Security) in compliance with the international ISO/IEC 27001 standard.

In the meantime, we offer standard products and individual solutions in the areas of IT security, network technology and datacenters to tens of thousands of client systems. We work together with a wide range of vendors and partners, and continuously qualify our staff in compliance with the latest certification for the marketed solutions. The portfolio of our Managed Security Services has expanded considerably in the intervening period allowing us to also alternatively offer indevis services and support for your requirements along with vendor solutions.

indevis will continue in the coming years to pursue its mission of enabling organizations in all branches and of all sizes to benefit from value-added complex and innovative information technology in an increasingly more connected online world, and in this way to facilitate secure commercial processes for those organizations.

The indevis logo

indevis logoThe indevis logo is modern and elegant; it contains a figurative mark: a hexagonal symbol whose lines are joined in places and broken in others. The hexagon is the most stable form in nature – bees, for example, use the shape for their beehives. The open and closed lines give the logo a dynamic effect, which at the same time is an analogy for structures in networks in which, for example, open and closed ports regulate the traffic.

Stability belongs perfectly to our claim to "security in a connected world", by which we do not only mean the conventional topic of IT security. We include in the claim the general requirement of our clients to operate a stable and secure IT infrastructure. The indevis logo with the hexagon is representative of our claim to be a reliable and stable partner to our clients to whom we aim to provide security in a connected world.
