ESCRYPT's history began in 2004 when the company was founded as a spin-off from Horst-Görtz Institute for IT Security (HGI) at the Ruhr University in Bochum. The strong link to research remains to the present day and makes it mark on the work of the security experts.
A lot has happened since 2004. The former start-up company has developed into an internationally active corporation with sites and customers through the world. ESCRYPT is today's market leader in the area of Automotive Cyber Security. The pioneering spirit, passion and strong will to make the networked world a safer place remain unchanged to this day.
ESCRYPT is a company with a future and grows constantly. In 2022, ESCRYPT will open the new company headquarters on a site steeped in tradition: the former Opel premises in Bochum.
