A history of pioneering

Thomas Wollinger at Young Talent AwardDr. Thomas Wollinger, at the award ceremony for the ESCRYPT Young Talent Awards

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 brand with 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.
