Experience and innovation for providing the best service

“With the appointment of Philipp Kleinmanns as Managing Director, we are emphatically underlining our commitment to innovation and demonstrating our determination to actively address the changing market developments in the field of cyber security,” explains Uwe Scariot, member of the Materna Group’s Executive Board with responsibility for cyber security.

Materna proves several decades of experience in the use of standard software from the market to develop services that not only meet customer requirements, but also integrate technology-driven innovations. Philipp Kleinmanns’ takeover of the management reflects the strategic orientation of the Materna Group to integrate and expand the overall cyber security offering.

New management consistently bundles cyber security expertise within the Group

In August 2023, it was decided to form a unified offering by integrating Materna Radar Cyber Security Austria GmbH and other divisions under the Materna Radar Cyber Security brand. As part of this process, Kleinmanns was appointed as a central portfolio manager with overall responsibility for cyber security in order to maximize synergies within the group. In his new role as Managing Director in Austria, Kleinmanns will be joined by Michael Stelzhammer, responsible for Enabling Functions, and Alexis Kahr, responsible for Sales. Both are already in key positions at Materna Radar Cyber Security Austria GmbH. As part of the strategic realignment, the previous Managing Director Christian Polster is leaving the company after a successful completion of the post-merger integration.

 “We would like to thank Christian Polster for his outstanding commitment and support during the integration phase and wish him all the best for his professional future,” says Uwe Scariot.

“The challenges posed by new regulatory requirements, advanced attackers and the use of artificial intelligence require innovative solutions and the ability to adapt quickly. Materna Radar Cyber Security is excellently positioned to meet these requirements thanks to the use of standard products and technologies as well as the deepening of strategic partnerships, especially with Elastic,” explains Philipp Kleinmanns. “I am very pleased to be able to play a key role in shaping this important focus area of cyber security for the market and Materna in my additional role as Managing Director.”
