A Chapter Closes

When we registered the domain cyber.wtf, G DATA Advanced Analytics (ADAN) was only Marion, Jan, and me. Our sole offer was malware analysis and we were sharing an office that had been vacated by G DATA’s security labs and was scheduled for a thorough workover later that year. That was almost exactly six years ago.

A few months back, I had accepted the task to build a security service provider under the roof of an AV company. ADAN has grown quite a bit over the years in terms of people and portfolio, and G DATA has changed and grown as well. It’s been quite a ride and I’d like to thank everyone who supported our cause and who lent me and my colleagues their ears, heart, and brain over the years. At the end of February I’ll resign from my role as founding CEO of G DATA ADAN.

All the best,
