High-sensitive data, system-critical workflows and special security-requirements. The cooperation of kalbeck ventures and the Swiss-based IT security service provider Ergon targets applications and web solutions with exactly those requirements.
High-sensitive data has a lot of facets: in the banking and energy sector, for industry applications, for the development of smart home applications or the rollout of digital corporate infrastructure, the secure handling of sensitive information is oftentimes crucial for success.

As of now, Ergon Informatik AG is an official partner of kalbeck ventures GmbH. The highly specialized security software company has been deploying its solutions all over the world. Since 2002, the Airlock Suite cares for access protection and security at over 350 companies from diverse industries. Thus, the in-house product suite Kaidoo can be deployed with an external cooperation partner's solution on request, enabling auditing and certifications of high-security environments without having to give up the customization of the application's functionality, workflows or user interfaces throughout.

About the Airlock Suite

The Airlock Suite combines filtering and authentication in one aligned solution. The Airlock WAF (Web Application Firewall) reliably protects internet applications like Kaidoo with systematic control and filtering mechanisms as well as diverse options for extension.

The WAF, amongst other functions, combines a secure reverse proxy to terminate SSL with the virtualization of applications as well as a central policy enforcement point with upstream authentication and authorization. It enables multiple filterings, client fingerprinting with dynamic whitelisting as well as mechanisms like cookie protection or access token-based session management. Airlock IAM is the central authentification platform with enterprise functions. It enables clients, partners or employees to securely access data and applications with a single login and automates user administration. Thus, several instances of the Kaidoo Suite can be accessed with single sign-on, be it the CMS or restricted areas on a website.
