Who We Are

About SCUDOS Systems GmbH

Our Mission

"We want to establish ourselves as a German and European company in order to make IT networks transparent, secure and easier to manage. Our customers can rely on the fact that there are no backdoors in our software."
SCUDOS provides a holistic approach to network infrastructure security to protect organizations from internal threats and minimize the network attack surface. Over the years, we have learned that network infrastructures are constantly changing. Without the right tools to automate these tasks, it is impossible for IT and security teams to adequately address new potential threats in their systems. Therefore, our pragmatic approach is based on a close relationship between SCUDOS' highly skilled development team and our dedicated customers. Our products are the result of ongoing studies of real-world scenarios, years of experience with penetration testing and analysis of security risks for network infrastructures for many companies in Germany. We strive to provide IT and security teams with highly efficient tools to maintain control of their network and mitigate risks before attackers can exploit them.
