Within the framework of the Mittelstandtour of the digital association Bitkom e.V., an event took place at the IHK Chemnitz on 4th of May 2017, of which the approx. 100 attendees were not only able to take an overview of changes to be overcome, but above all concrete recommendations for action. In addition, they had the opportunity to exchange ideas with digital experts and other participants on specific topics in one of three workshops.

Parallel to the event, digitronic®, under the theme "Digital Transformation - Our Contribution for You", presented solutions that enable the information security of small and medium-sized companies noticeable and can be improved with little effort. Especially in the context of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU DS-GVO), which became binding on May 28th 2018, this topic was met with great interest by the participants.

digitronic® lays down another milestone in the field of compliance-ready data security

Chemnitz, 08th July 2016

  • The most modern 2-factor-authentication even w/o PKI
  • Secure Logon™ 2.0 a “convenience-sensation” for administrators

The use of weak passwords offers attackers an “easy target” in the IT-system of any company.  Secure Logon 2.0

If one forces an increase in the complexity and frequency of change technologically, the “frustration” of the users in everyday operation will increase. The cost of support required to re-set passwords also increases dramatically.  

With the new development of Secure Logon™ 2.0 along with today‘s market release digitronic® resolves this conflict proactively: Unique and complex passwords are securely stored on a digitronic-SecurityToken. Instead of complex passwords one only needs to enter a PIN to authenticate an account on a PC, a network drive or a Remote Desktop Connection (using RDP). This results in a considerable savings of time and therefore costs.

Both the storage and the sharing of multiple identities using CRED-UI are available as a “convenience sensation” for administrators, since this can be done without having to install Secure Logon™ 2.0 on the target systems.

digitronic® has fever pitch!

Chemnitz, 5th July 2016

Ellie and the digitronic®-Team

Not only at UEFA Euro 2016 the ball got rolling, but also in Leipzig at the RoboCup. Scientists, pupils and students are meeting the challenge to score goals in different categories and on four days of competition.

RoboCup made it from a small nerdy convention to a professional competition in the field of robotics and automation. Thanks to futureSAX, Matthias Kirchhoff, CEO of digitronic®, was not able to present his football skills, but to show his experience in automation. MyCapp™ (one confidential app - all devices) provides a confidential and secure ‘biotope’ to communicate with the company’s infrastructure at an unsecure mobile device. With this technique there is the possibility to exchange critical data, like pictures for quality assurance, data of control programs or staff information.

In the following discussion Matthias Kirchhoff faced the questions and ideas of the audience. Even if digitronic® was not represented as footballer, so MyCapp™ is a go under the confidentiality Apps.


Living innovation – digitronic® is part of futureSAX innovation summit 2016

Chemnitz, June 10th 2016

At 6th of June 2016 digitronic® presented its state of the art technology MyCapp™ in the context of the Learning-Networkarea at futureSAX innovation summit. MyCapp™ combines the innovative capacity of the idea to bring digital compliance on a mobile, device independent platform with digitronic®’s comprehensive experience in the field of digital compliance and security.

MyCapp™ became concrete on stage, when Matthias Kirchhoff (digitronic® CEO) presents the advantages and possibilities of the app. With MyCapp™ it will be possible to monitor and to control critical processes in manufacturing. Also it will offer the feasibility to take a picture and sign it, also to add geodata for the purpose of quality assurance. Other fields of use may be human ressources and business administration. Our “Softwarefreaks are looking for mechanical engineers”   for the further development of MyCapp™.

TNS Infratest protects sensitive data in specialised areas

Anyone who works with sensitive information and personal data is subject to very strict laws and internal security guidelines. TNS Infratest generates annually untold millions of bytes of this sort of data and has been one of the few ISO 27001 certified companies in Germany since 2013. In order to be able to guarantee its global customers even more security, the Munich-based market and innovation researchers depend on the encryption tool HiCrypt.

With TNS Infratest, everything started with radio listener research and developed in the course of the last 60 years into one of the best-known and most respected institutes for scientific and economic market and opinion research.HiCrypt 2.0

Along with general data, TNS Infratest works primarily with sensitive infromation, both on the customer-side and on the participant-side. For that reason data security is a very important topic. At the end of 2013 TNS Infratest received the ISO 27001 Certification from TÜV Süd for its exceptionally good information security management.

“Starting at a certain degree of confidentiality, customers do not just demand sophisticated security measures against external threats, but the potential data access must also remain restricted internally to the authorised persons who are responsible for the project,” commented Dirk Wocke, externally assigned Information Security Officer with TNS Infratest. “For that reason it was decisive that HiCrypt made it possible for the department to use the software independently,” Wocke also declared.

Security is not a matter for hype

By expanding with the 2-factor-authentication and the easy operation, HiCrypt integrated itself into the daily work with TNS Infratest.

So that the user experience continues to be as positive as it has been, the opinion researchers in Munich have concluded a software maintenance contract for HiCrypt. This will continue to provide them with important updates and expansions and they will profit from the support of the developer in Chemnitz when emergencies arise. 

“We are very satisfied with HiCrypt and are planning to expand our collaboration in area of high-security projects. The need will likely increase in the future,” says Wocke.

“Softwarefreaks met with Mechanical Engineers” Hannover Expo 2016

   Hannover_Messe_Bild4   Hannover_Messe_Bild3   Hannover_Messe_Bild2   Hannover_Messe_Bild1

Chemnitz, 10.05.2016

The Hannover Trade Fair 2016 provided a platform for a total of 190,000 professionals who attended to get acquainted and make contacts in the industry at the German, European and international levels. More than 30%* of the attendees came from abroad.

Matthias Kirchhoff, futureSAX Alumni, head and initiator of its digitronic® Softwarefreaks, also used the opportunity to present the MyCapp™- Technology (one confidential app- all devices) to a wide audience at the Young Tech Enterprise stage and present “predictive maintenance” during the Guided Tours.

On the  “Sachsen Abend”, or “Evening for Saxony” he thanked the employees of futureSAX and Saxony’s State Minister for Economic Affairs, Employment and Transport, Martin Dulig, for the “futureSAX Platform” as a  “Stage for Innovation in Saxony” and urged consistent, continued work with the same team.

Appearing as a start-up innovation in the futureSAX Start-up Corner, digitronic® dared for the first time to put the focus on the  first step of the  “mechanical engineer” in the direction of  MyCapp™, which will have an extraordinary significance in the context of Industry 4.0.  Matthias Kirchhoff is convinced that “…after more than 20 years of exhibiting at this trade fair, at CeBIT - the direct conversations with future industry clients were the most impressive experience at the trade fair.”  

In the framework of an introductory phase for MyCapp™, digitronic® is looking for interested parties who need mobile, platform-independent process connections and will participate in the costs of ongoing development.

*Source: Hannover Messe


With “Software freaks looking for mechanical engineers” digitronic® shows off the innovative power of a start-up in the Start-up Corner at the Hannover Messe.

 

ThomasThomas is just now putting the last part on the prototype, fastening it at the stress point and turns the material to harder plastic. “Now it will meet the hardness requirements,” he mutters and sends the model to the 3D-printer in the factory hall. Then Thomas puts on the Augmented-Reality-Goggles, shuts down the e MyCapp™-App  and puts his tablet down –just in time: Because he’s ready to spend time with his family. Thomas really appreciates the flexibility in his workplace.

Work at the home office and in Industry 4.0 could soon look like this- or similar to this.

But how can the communications route between Thomas’ Tablet and the 3D- printer in his employers’ factory workshop, be hardened to be break-in proof? How does one determine whether or not Thomas’ draft model was altered en route to the 3D-printer? How can one make sure that competing companies don’t get access to sensitive machine data?

And what role does MyCapp™ play in this?

On April 28th and 29th, 2016 Matthias Kirchhoff, the CEO of digitronic® and both head and motor of his team of highly qualified „Freaks“, will provide answers to these urgent questions in the futureSAX-Start-up Corner (Hall 3, Booth B06)!

With MyCapp™ digitronic® presents its unique concept for the integration of mobile end-devices while at the same time assuring digital confidentiality in industry-4.0-Llandscapes. MyCapp™ transposes confidentiality into a logical level that is independent of the device and operating system. Mechanical engineers should be able to remain mechanical engineers, to use a confidential environment and able to still adapt the perspective personally. Security-critical programming can be omitted.

Are you a product developer, entrepreneur or mechanical engineer like Thomas…?

Then come to the Start-Up Stage (Hall 3, Booth A01) at the Hannover Exhibition Centre on April 28th, 2016 from 12:30 to 13:00 as well as on April 29th, 2016 from 12:30 to 13:00 and enter into productive dialogue with Matthias  Kirchhoff, discussing how one gets these ideas “off the ground” as quickly as possible.

What we actually experienced when we were there totally exceeded what we had envisaged and expected from such an event. The enormous increase in the number of visitors also therefore highlighted the prominent position of such an exhibition with regard to international competition.

Intensive professional discussions were held on each of the five conference days and very promising contacts were created with new customers. What is particularly important for us Germans is that we could see how interested the many visitors were in backdoor free, all-in-one compliance solutions with team encoding and 2-factor authentication.

Presentation "mobile terminals in the production field - MyCapp™ an utopia?" - M. Kirchhoff, CEO of digitronic® - in the frame program at the forum Chemnitz 2020 on 21. May 2015

Chemnitz, May 8th, 2015: Presentation "mobile terminals in the production field - MyCapp™ an utopia?"

Mobile terminals have become an integral part in the professional context: Complex contexts are illustrated by means of tablet when advising citizens, clients or patients, with smartphones photos are generated and shared. Herewith, access to the company's own IT structure is a basic requirement. In addition, numerous individual use cases exist, which are characterized by specific needs of companies and employees.

In this context, the principle BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) gains in relevance whereupon private mobile terminals such as laptops, tablets or smartphones are integrated in the companies’ networks. In the production background, we find nowadays similar assignments of tasks. Mobile devices shall be used, if possible, independent of operating systems and device manufacturers as a secure "extended arm" of the output process efficiently. This procedure is cost-efficient, environmentally sustainable and brings more comfort and flexibility to the companies. It has however at the same time the essential disadvantage that those security standards generally do not apply for any device that in company environments is considered as absolutely necessary.

An innovation to cap it all!

At Security Plaza at this year’s CeBIT in Hannover, digitronic will be celebrating the premiere of MyCapp, an app that relocates digital privacy to a logical level not dependent on specific devices.

Although once viewed with suspicion in business circles, it’s now difficult to imagine daily working life without mobile end devices. However, access to internal corporate IT structures, particularly while maintaining security standards, is a major challenge for administrators. Added to that, the concept of BYOD (bring your own device) is becoming increasingly relevant; after all, private end devices are now expected to support the same security standards that have long been considered absolutely indispensable in the corporate environment.

Nonetheless, some people are wary of BYOD as they feel the security risk cannot be completely eliminated. But now, at this year’s CeBIT in Hannover, the MyCapp project from digitronic is set to quash preconceptions like these once and for all. MyCapp relocates digital privacy to a logical level that is not dependent on the device or operating system. Because companies can also expand the functionality of the app, personal devices can be used securely and without restriction for work tasks while maintaining employees’ privacy. Thanks to this solution, there’s no longer any need to juggle two expensive devices at the same time!
