Business experts from IT-Security and Telecommunications join secucloud team

Prof. Dr. Norbert Pohlmann PhD, Ilijana Vavan and Ulf Heggenberger support sales and business development of the Hamburg-based start-up secucloud.

Hamburg, 11 July 2014 - Security is one of the basic human needs. Therefore, we carefully protect almost everything in our everyday life - houses, cars and capital. Simultaneously, our virtual reality is becoming more real than ever - just like its dangers. There is an urgent need for a security solution, which enables small companies and private users to protect their Internet data streams without much effort. This is the daily business of secucloud - from now on supported by the business and security experts Prof. Dr. Norbert Pohlmann, Ilijana Vavan and Ulf Heggenberger. They will strengthen the team surrounding Dennis Monner, former head of Hamburg's firewall provider gateProtect.

Dennis Monner, Founder and CEO of secucloud: "We are very pleased about the opportunity to benefit from knowledge of business experts, who have participated in successful and known companies like Kaspersky, Juniper Networks and Vodafone. It is a great honour that Prof. Dr. Norbert Pohlmann PhD, the German IT corypheus, has taken the chairmanship of our Board and supports our idea."

The successful IT-Security professional has 15 years of experience - Pohlmann has been a member of the Board at Kaspersky Labs since February 2014. Moreover, he advises the German policy as a member of the IT-Security Taskforce in the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, is a member of "eco", the biggest European Internet association and member of the Scientific Advisory of Data Security and Data Protection. Furthermore, Pohlmann is Professor for informatics for distribution systems and information security and director of the Institute of Internet Security at the University in Gelsenkirchen (Germany). Last but not least, he is founder and chairman of the TeleTrust "IT Security made in Germany" organization.

Ilijana Vavan has more than 20 years of experience in successfully building and expanding IT companies. She now supports secucloud operatively as a board member. Before joining secucloud, Vavan was responsible for the Sales network of the IT-Security-Company Kaspersky Lab in the EMEA region as Executive Vice President, reporting directly to Eugene Kaspersky (founder and CEO of Kaspersky). As Enterprise Sales Director, she was also leading the sales organization of Juniper Networks in over 26 countries.

Ulf Heggenberger, former CEO of EWE TEL GmbH and long-term Vodafone manager, is an expert in the Telecommunications field. With Heggenberger on the board, secucloud benefits from his well-established contacts to various CEOs and leaders of different Internet Service Providers. In response, private users and medium-sized companies will be able to subscribe to the secucloud solution directly at their ISP in the future.
