Time and Cost-Efficient

By combining SaaS technology, customer support, and our expertise, we developed a test management system allowing us to offer cost-effective embedded system security (ESST) testing services. The (SaaS) model allows us to provide a low-cost, high-quality product developed by our ESST experts team. This automated testing tool is now being used by companies worldwide.


The basis of our USP is formed by several years of research and development, which enables us to implement our product and offer our services in the first place. Best practices and uniform procedures combined with experience gained in the service area fuel further product development and standardize future service projects.

Close the Security Gap

As security becomes increasingly important, software error and security tests must be performed more comprehensively. Our test management system performs automated security tests on embedded systems. Every test can be carried out at any time, and it is traceable and reliable. Adding to that, our test management system is flexible and scalable.
