Business experts from IT-Security and Telecommunications join secucloud team

Prof. Dr. Norbert Pohlmann PhD, Ilijana Vavan and Ulf Heggenberger support sales and business development of the Hamburg-based start-up secucloud.

Hamburg, 11 July 2014 - Security is one of the basic human needs. Therefore, we carefully protect almost everything in our everyday life - houses, cars and capital. Simultaneously, our virtual reality is becoming more real than ever - just like its dangers. There is an urgent need for a security solution, which enables small companies and private users to protect their Internet data streams without much effort. This is the daily business of secucloud - from now on supported by the business and security experts Prof. Dr. Norbert Pohlmann, Ilijana Vavan and Ulf Heggenberger. They will strengthen the team surrounding Dennis Monner, former head of Hamburg's firewall provider gateProtect.

Dennis Monner, Founder and CEO of secucloud: "We are very pleased about the opportunity to benefit from knowledge of business experts, who have participated in successful and known companies like Kaspersky, Juniper Networks and Vodafone. It is a great honour that Prof. Dr. Norbert Pohlmann PhD, the German IT corypheus, has taken the chairmanship of our Board and supports our idea."

The successful IT-Security professional has 15 years of experience - Pohlmann has been a member of the Board at Kaspersky Labs since February 2014. Moreover, he advises the German policy as a member of the IT-Security Taskforce in the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, is a member of "eco", the biggest European Internet association and member of the Scientific Advisory of Data Security and Data Protection. Furthermore, Pohlmann is Professor for informatics for distribution systems and information security and director of the Institute of Internet Security at the University in Gelsenkirchen (Germany). Last but not least, he is founder and chairman of the TeleTrust "IT Security made in Germany" organization.

Ilijana Vavan has more than 20 years of experience in successfully building and expanding IT companies. She now supports secucloud operatively as a board member. Before joining secucloud, Vavan was responsible for the Sales network of the IT-Security-Company Kaspersky Lab in the EMEA region as Executive Vice President, reporting directly to Eugene Kaspersky (founder and CEO of Kaspersky). As Enterprise Sales Director, she was also leading the sales organization of Juniper Networks in over 26 countries.

Ulf Heggenberger, former CEO of EWE TEL GmbH and long-term Vodafone manager, is an expert in the Telecommunications field. With Heggenberger on the board, secucloud benefits from his well-established contacts to various CEOs and leaders of different Internet Service Providers. In response, private users and medium-sized companies will be able to subscribe to the secucloud solution directly at their ISP in the future.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
