BSI-Approved Combination for Secure Access to Data up to Classification Level German VS-NfD
The combination of ECOS Secure Boot Stick [SX/ZX] and the BSI-approved genuscreen appliance enables secure access to data up to classification level German VS-NfD. The ECOS Secure Boot Stick can be used with any computer, even with a private computer in a remote work environment. In turn, the Firewall & VPN Appliance genuscreen uses strongly encrypted VPNs to ensure extremely secure data communication via public networks. At the same time, the firewall function of genuscreen reliably filters the data traffic at the interfaces so that impermissible or unwanted connections are blocked.
"As a result of the sales partnership with genua as one of the leading IT security companies in Germany, our customers will be able to acquire perfectly matched solutions and services from a single source in order to implement a wide variety of different application scenarios for high-security remote access," says Paul Marx, Managing Director of ECOS Technology GmbH.
