Compumatica was founded in Uden (Netherlands) in 1991.
From the outset, the company established partnerships with other security
providers, such as KryptoKom, ISS, Cobion and Utimaco,
in order to provide
a comprehensive and suitable product portfolio for its customers.
Within a few years, Compumatica built a good reputation and became
one of the main providers of large and complex security solutions
in The Netherlands.
In 1993, the first KryptoGuard version was successfully installed by partner
KryptoKom at the site of one of Compumatica's customers, and in 1996,
the first KryptoWall (also developed by KryptoKom)
was delivered to the German Public Authorities.
Early in 2002, Compumatica acquired the Network Security business line
of Utimaco Safeware AG (formerly: KryptoKom) and most of its Virtual Private
Network (VPN) specialists. Since then, the range of hardware-based VPN products
has constantly been further developed and improved. A special version of
that was developed for the German Public Authorities,
has been approved by the BSI
according to ITSEC E3/high. It is also
integrated in other projects.
A year later, in 2003, Compumatica took over two product lines from
Philips Crypto BV
after the latter closed down due to lack of revenue.
The two products, LanGuard and
(a 2Mbps link encryptor) were suitable for the protection of information
up to the level of STATE SECRET.
In 2005, the company also acquired Utimaco Safeware firewall technology,
in order to underline its long-term commitment to the high-end IT-security
market. The new technology was added to the existing CryptoWall, making it
the only three-stage high-end security firewall on the market today (2013).
According to the company, the system is absolutely hacker-proof and has so
far never exhibited any weak spots, making it one of the most secure products
in its class .
In the light of the current debate about terrorism versus privacy,
many US companies are giving the authorities access to their customers data.
In line with most European crypto manufacturers, Compumatica
goes to great length to guarantee that there are no hidden
backdoors in their products and that there are no duplicate keys either.
With slogans like Security Made in Germany and the registered
trademarks shown above, it is emphasized that duplicate keys do not exist.
In 2006, the Dutch variant of the entire CryptoGuard VPN line, ranging
from desktop to Gigabit solutions, was awarded the approvals

In 2009, Compumatica expanded its range of secure products with the
a mobile phone that protects all voice and SMS communications.
At the same time, the new CompuCrypt XL, with a throughput of up to 10 Gbps,
was introduced. Later that year, on 1 October, Compumatica took over
the secure e-mail gateway from Utimaco Safeware AG.
Since 2010, CryptoGuard VPN and SMS are approved for EU Restricted.
In 2011, the company acquired technology for Cloud Security, Routing,
Firewall and IPv6, by taking over the Vantronic product range.
