Our philosophy and motivation

The number of new threats per day rises explosively – additionally, attacks are getting more complex and system knowledge decreases while the number of vulnerable devices and services increases. 

For over 25 years IKARUS Security Software follows the mission to continually find new approaches and solutions in order to make security accessible and affordable to everyone.

Our daily challenge and our motivation are to act in an innovative, critical, customer-oriented and responsible manner with a clear focus on our core competences.

We appreciate staying in touch with our customers and offering an active support team – not only in case of emergency, but also to provide information and advice.
