  • Crypto manufacturer Compumtica expands to HSD Campus in The Hague

    Added: 12-10-2016

    The Hague, October 12, 2016 - IT security company Compumatica, the only Dutch crypto manufacturer, opened today a new office in The Hague. With their inventive security solutions in the field of cryptography and now located at the HSD Campus, Compumatica will actively take part in the ecosystem of The Hague Security Delta, the largest security cluster in Europe. The ceremonial opening in The Hague was preceded by a seminar on privacy.

    Safely encrypted

    In 1991, when almost no one was familiar with cybersecurity, Compumatica was founded and is since then at the forefront of developments in this area. The IT security company designs among others codes for security software and encryption solutions; products that encrypt information so that it can be sent securely. Important for governments, critical infrastructure as well as for businesses.

    Expanding to The Hague

    The first contact of the Dutch IT security company with The Hague Security Delta (HSD) and InnovationQuarter occurred during an economic mission to Japan in November 2015 under the leadership of Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister for Economic Affairs Henk Kamp. During this mission aimed at among others cybersecurity, the strategy of Compumatica has frequently been discussed and the wish was expressed to be closer to their clients. Many of the clients are active in the major cities in Western Holland (‘Randstad’) and mainly The Hague. The choice of location on the HSD Campus was therefore obvious.

    Petra Schayik CEO Compumatica: "With the new office in The Hague, a long wish is fulfilled in order to be closer to our clients, who are mainly based in The Hague."

    "With the presence of Compumatica in The Hague, our region is a nice security company richer. The high security level without back doors of their IT solutions developed are a valuable asset to our security ecosystem, "said Chris Voorden, Ditrector Foreign Investments at InnovationQuarter. "We accompany Petra van Schayik and her team as a new HSD partner by introducing them into our networks and assist in creating opportunities that support their business goals."

    Security at Olympics Games 2020

    Compumatica is taking part with Alliander, Evidantly, Group 2000, Radically Open Security, Redsocks, Security Matters and ZiuZ, two educational institutions (Delft University of Technology and Eindhoven University of Technology) as well as The Hague Security Delta and InnovationQuarter in the International Business Platform (PIB), a consortium aiming to secure Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo, Japan.

    The consortium underlines the Dutch expertise and experience in protecting critical infrastructures from cyber threats.

  • Compumatica introduces CompuWebmail for the CompuMail Gateway

    Added: 23.05.2014

    Aachen, May 23rd 2014.- The webmail extension to the CompuMail Gateway by Compumatica makes it possible to integrate external communication partners, who can‘t communicate via S/MIME or OpenPGP into a secure e-mail communication. Only a conventional web browser is needed. The e-mail gateway can also be used in combination with Office 365 and Google Mail in a secure and easy way.

    The CompuWebmail is installed on an own server which should be placed in the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) of the organization. All e-mails are stored in an encrypted way. Thus, there is no security risk for the organization’s private keys which are stored on the CompuMail Gateway. The recipient can access the e-mails with his web browser via a secure HTTPS connection. He doesn’t need any specific requirements for the secure communication. The installation of software or further modifications of the e-mail infrastructure on the recipients’ side are not necessary. The gateway including webmail function may also be included into Office 365 environments without any problems.

    How does the communication work?

    The internal user sends an e-mail to an external recipient who doesn’t have a user account on CompuWebmail yet. Given a matching rule that this e-mail has to be sent to CompuWebmail it is routed to that server by CompuMail Gateway. CompuWebmail automatically creates a user account for this recipient and stores the e-mail into that account. At the same time a password for this account is generated. The password is sent back by the CompuWebmail to the internal sender. He now has to get in contact with the recipient, for example by telephone, to submit the password to the external recipient. The external recipient gets an e-mail by the CompuWebmail containing the weblink (HTTPS) which the recipient has to open in his browser. As user name the e-mail address is used. Now the recipient is able to log on to CompuWebmail by means of his user name and password. After the first login the user has to change the password received from the internal sender. Afterwards, the external recipient gets access to his mail box on CompuWebmail and can participate in the secured e-mail communication with organizations of the sender.

  • Compumatica offers new CompuDiode

    Added: 19.03.2014

    Compumatica  developed a data diode for the secure transfer of critical data in only one direction. The device is shockproof and works without any fans.

    Many processes in technical and industrial settings are supervised and controlled by means of ICS (Industrial Control Systems) or SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems. The interface between different environments is necessary, but at the same time it is important to protect the critical data being transferred. On the one hand, the data shouldn’t flow back, on the other hand it is not desired to disconnect the affected systems since this often results in loss of time and money.

    CompuDiode by Compumatica provides a secure solution for transferring critical data only in one direction, in real-time and without any risk to flow back. Thus, it offers an ideal way to combine high availability with high security.

    Solution features and benefits

    The diode consists of a unidirectional connection for secure data transfer. It is designed and perfectly suited for SCADA or ICS systems and combinations of high and low class data. The data are transferred in real-time and no disconnection of the systems is necessary.

    Technical specifications

    The data diode is implemented in a fanless and shockproof device (19“ and 1U), together with two CompuWall softwares and two redundant power supplies (100-240 VAC and 50-60 Hz). It tolerates temperatures in a range from -20 to +50°C and has a lifetime of 10 years.
