Initiated in 2016, the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO) aims to develop, further and support initiatives as well as projects for the protection of cyber threats. At the same time, the organisation wants to strengthen the market position of European-based cyber security vendors and to make these competitive internationally.
“Cyber security is a vital competitive advantage in digitalisation“, explains Mathias Meinke, CTO of oneclick AG and responsible for the security architecture of the Application Delivery and Streaming Platform operated by the company. “The sharp increase in integration of applications, data, objects and machines during digitalisation also exposes for companies and customers more areas to attacks.“
Cyber security during implementation has to have a high priority to realise the opportunities and growth potential of digitalisation. Some companies are already well positioned regarding IT security, whilst others still have backlog demand. Almost every company provides a target for an attack. Many do not notice that they have already been attacked. In the digital world, data protection and compliance would not be possible without encryption. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will have to be implemented by May 2018, emphases the importance of encryption for data protection and data security.
Therefore, encryption is also an important aspect of the oneclick™ Application Delivery and Streaming Platform. The platform, which is available as a service, enables the delivery of applications from central server locations as an encrypted stream to mobile devices. During this process the applications and data never leave the secure hosting location. Through automated provision of digital workspaces in the browser, the platform supports companies of any size and from any sector during the digitalisation of their business processes. Following a short connection set up to a target infrastructure, the platform becomes immediately available. From oneclick™, there is no need for the installation of software components on devices. In addition to increased mobility and productivity, oneclick™ is also an upstream security layer in front of each cloud service and any enterprise network.
