Radar Cyber Security’s journey to protect digital assets began more than ten years ago when a handful of IT security enthusiasts implemented third-party IT security products and conducted penetration testing for customers.
Even then, most of the products used by our customers were from the United States. Over time, the threat landscape started to change and above all to speed up dramatically. The push for digitization, which was to trigger an unstoppable transformation, was imminent. The impending failure of prevention systems was already foreseeable.
For this reason, instead of continuing what had made us quite successful over the years, we have tried to break new ground. Our passion drove us to create a clear goal for what needed to be achieved.
We wanted to look beyond and grasp the broader context of our upcoming challenges facing companies and IT. Before we put our idea into practice, we conducted an analysis. Our in-depth research of the origins of cybersecurity solutions revealed that the vast majority of vendors and products in this area also came predominantly from the USA or Israel. There was no significant IT security industry in Europe at that time.
Until then, companies simply had no choice but to use what was available. But Europe must not be reduced to a simple reseller of US technologies. Because if we are only customers and users, we lose sovereignty. Europe has always been a continent of innovation, a driver for technological progress. Over the decades, there has always been a choice between using European technology or technology from other continents. This freedom of choice creates independence. Only in this way is it possible to make a free decision and express one’s opinion if one does not agree with developments and products.
