CeBIT 2016 impressed with an enormous variety of business security solutions – from an app for secure cellphone calls to the Airbus’s Cyber Defense Center for the fast detection of web-based attacks.
Today's businesses are increasingly having to deal with targeted cyber-attacks. In response to this threat, Kaspersky was in Hannover to showcase its new "Anti Targeted Attack Platform". Another topic continuing to attract high interest is the encryption of e-mails. The Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (SIT) began taking requests at CeBIT for its "people's encryption" system scheduled to become available in the middle of this year – at no charge for private users. Another key security-related issue was taken up by Vodafone, with a connected bodycam for police, paramedics and fire-fighting personnel, designed to enhance public safety at major public events.
