About genua

For the data communication in security-critical areas genua and CONET offer highly secure solutions: the firewall & VPN appliance genuscreen and the mobile security device genucard as a VPN solution, which both have been certified for VS-NfD (Confidential – For Official Use Only) communications by the Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik - BSI).

Many VPN solutions provide a reliable encrypted connection to your network but they neglect the risk that laptops – and in the next consequence your company network, too – are exposed to public and often badly secured nets like public hotspots in cafés or airport lounges. In the worst case they involuntarily open up a connection between the public hotspot net and your company net – with unpredictable consequences for your information security.

With the genucard genua presents a new concept distinguishing itself from other VPN solutions, thus being one of currently only two products certified for the use until the level „Confidential – For Official Use Only (VS-NfD)“ by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

genucard – a self-sufficient high-security package

The genucard comes as a self-sufficient security appliance with an independent, tempered operating system and can be connected by USB with your laptop. The integrated firewall only allows permitted communication and transfers it via a strongly encrypted VPN connection. Genucard provides connections via ethernet, WLAN or UMTS/EDGE. The external VPN solution will still be fully active in case the laptop has been compromised by malware. Additional features are the authentication via Smart Card and the central management for control, configuration and update of your genucard appliances.

CONET – your security competency

Many private sector enterprises as well as public authorities – from the Federal Ministries until the municipal administrations – trust in CONET’s long-standing competency in the field IT security for the design and operation of their security-critical infrastructures. CONET assists you from the analysis of the infrastructure, the design and revision of security concepts until the implementation of complex security solutions. With the genucard made by genua GmbH we now are able to offer you for the first time a VPN solution which complies with the strictest criteria of the BSI for “restricted” communication.

We make your security our task.

Please contact our experts to arrange a meeting. Our trained and certified consultants with long-standing project experience will gladly support you with the conception, evaluation and integration of genucard into your network.
