Security is part of our DNA

Who we are

TÜV Informationstechnik (TÜVIT) is 100 percent about IT security. It is part of our DNA, and has been since 1995. At TÜVIT, IT security is not a trend and it is not hype: it is embedded in virtually everything we do and all of our employees have signed up for. Our experience and skills are totally dedicated to security in information technology. 


... is our credo. The TÜVIT experts are not subject to any conflicting goals, as they have no obligations towards product suppliers, system integrators, shareholders, interest groups or government agencies.

In addition, numerous approvals as well as certificates of national and international organizations prove our independence.

TÜVIT continues to develop the best available technology in numerous research projects and (standardization) committees.
