The TeleTrusT Quality Seal "IT Security made in Germany" has originally been established in 2005 by the German Federal Ministries of the Interior and of Economic Affairs and Technologyand is since then awarded to companieswhich products and services meet specific quality requirements. Besides the provision of trustworthy IT-security solutions the strict fulfillment of the requirements of the applicable German privacy regulations is an important requirement for receiving the TeleTrusT Quality Seal.
„German IT-security providers are global leaders with respect to the creation of products, which fulfill highest standards regarding trust and information security“, said Brigitte Zypries, Member of the German Parliament and Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy.
„Due to the observance of recent results of science and technology and current and future international standards, we have always been able to offer excellent advice and outstanding solutions, like ‚SkIDentity‘ or most recently the ‚BürgerCloud‘“, said Dr.Detlef Hühnlein, CEO of ecsec GmbH. „We are glad that this high quality standard is now also expressed by the TeleTrusT Quality Seal ‚IT Security made in Germany‘.“
