We cracked Stuxnet. Now we help companies to build a secure Industrial Internet of Things.
We have been among the first to develop the field of ICS security. We have cracked the Stuxnet malware. We have helped asset owners in critical infrastructure and manufacturing to protect against nation-state level cyber attacks.
Our game-changing OT asset management software helps companies to build secure and reliable OT infrastructures in times of shrinking head counts.
A journey from software to consulting to software
Langner started out as a software company developing PC driver software to connect to industrial automation devices. In the Nineties, when networks became a thing and industrial control systems became networked at a large scale, we were among the first to point out the cyber security risk.
OT security consulting then became our main focus for over twenty years. Our analysis of the Stuxnet malware has triggered global changes in policy and defense. Among others, we were asked for advice by the White House, the Pentagon, the US Senate, and the United Nations.
In our consulting practice we noticed that every single client, no matter how big or small, no matter which industry, lacked an asset inventory which could act as the factual basis for a solid cyber risk assessment.
We finally picked up the challenge to develop OT asset management software that not just revolutionizes OT security, but also gives engineering and maintenance an unprecedented level of visibility of their networks. Today, the OT-BASE OT Asset Management software is our sole focus.
FOUNDER AND CEO
Langner is independent and small. We don’t depend on external capital and crazy growth expectations. We don’t maintain an expensive workforce of traveling sales people and solution architects. We focus on product development with a small, dedicated team of world class experts that have worked together for more than ten years.
We pick customers who share our vision that building a secure and safe Industrial Internet of Things requires innovative software tools — tools that we build with the strong feedback of our customers, some of which are global leaders in their industries. If you share this vision, we’d like to hear from you.
