Fraunhofer AISEC supports firms from all industries and service sectors in securing their systems, infrastructures, products and offerings. On behalf of our clients, we develop qualitatively high-value security technologies which increase the reliability, trustworthiness and tamper-resistance of IT-based systems and products. The approximately 80 members of the Fraunhofer AISEC scientific and technical staff balance economic needs, user-friendliness, and security requirements to develop optimally tailored concepts and solutions. Our security test labs are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, and our highly-qualified security experts evaluate and analyze the security of products and hardware components as well as software products and applications for our customers. In our laboratories, we test functionality, interoperability and compliance and give our clients targetted, effective advice. Our clients are producers, distributors and users in the areas of (among others) chip-card systems, telecommunications, automotive production and distribution, logistics and aerospace, mechanical engineering and automation technologies, healthcare, and the software industry, as well as the public sector like eGovernment. Strategic partnerships with global industrial companies as well as with international universities (in particular, the Technical University of Munich – a federally-designated »University of Excellence«) guarantee the scientific excellence of our work as well as its market-driven implementation.
