Marcus Mayer got to know two sides of IKARUS. First on the side of a partner company and since 2019 as a product manager at IKARUS.

It all started more than 30 years ago with IKARUS anti.virus, the popular virus scanner for endpoints and servers. Managed Security Services for secure e-mail and web gateways followed in 2001, followed by the protection of WLAN hotspots and mobile devices. With the IKARUS scan.server, IKARUS took a step towards industrial security. IKARUS as enterprise mobility solution completed the business portfolio.

With the technology partners FireEye and Nozomi Networks, IKARUS presented in 2019 the new IT, OT and IoT solution IKARUS managed.defense. In 2020, the new edition of IKARUS anti.virus with cloud management followed.

“In IT security it never gets boring – new technologies and systems always require adapted security concepts. Already during the cooperation with IKARUS, I appreciated the unbureaucratic solutions and the teamwork”, says Marcus Mayer: “Now I am happy to be part of this team and at the same time to get highly interesting insights into one of the most exciting industries”.
