Company Overview
Secuware is a leading European developer of enterprise security software, founded in Madrid in 1998. The company’s mission from the outset has been to free corporations of their dependency on signature updates to protect their networks against malware. Secuware’s first product, Crypt2000, was created at the request of the Spanish Ministry of Defense and the Interior and now protects almost every government department in Spain. Today, the company has government and commercial customers in more than a dozen countries, including Warner Bros, Wal-Mart, BBVA, the Bank of Spain, El Corte Inglés, Telefónica, Iberdrola, and the Madrid Metro. Some 800,000 licenses are in use in more than 500 organizations around the world.

The Team
Carlos Jiménez, founder, President, and CEO of Secuware, began his career in information security when he founded Anyware, Spain’s first information security company, in 1989. In 1998, McAfee acquired Anyware, and Secuware was born. Carlos is a widely-regarded authority on information security matters in Europe. He is a regular speaker at NATO conferences on cyberterrorism and is currently Vice Chairman of the Information Society Club, a member of the Committee of Experts of the Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology, and a weekly contributor to Intereconomía.

In 2006, Secuware opened its US headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley. Spearheading the North American operation is Feliciano Rivera, a 16-year industry veteran with in-depth experience in both enterprise and information security software with companies such as Trend Micro, Zone Labs, and NetScreen Technologies.

Secuware also maintains an advisory board which plays an active role in the company’s strategic development.

Products and Solutions
Secuware Security Framework (SSF) is the company’s core offering. SSF extends the security of Windows networks by creating closed circuits for information in which only authorized individuals using authorized devices and authorized applications can access authorized data, preventing information leakage and delivering a more stable computing environment.

This closed-circuit approach brings a number of benefits to enterprises, beyond those delivered by point solutions such as standalone encryption or anti-malware:

  • Provides a secure operating system, not just access control and encryption.
  • Adaptive approach and modular architecture ensures SSF deployments easily evolve to address changing behaviors, threats, and systems.
  • Creates definable security zones within and beyond the borders of the enterprise to control access and contain security attacks.
  • Ensures compliance with data protection legislation by preventing information leakage and malware infections.
  • Tight integration with Windows and major directory services ensures scalability and ease of policy application
  • Strengthens internal security by separating systems management and information security controls to avoid cross-contamination and single points of failure.
