  1. About us
  2. Who we are

Who we are

TÜV Informationstechnik (TÜViT) is 100 percent about IT security. It is part of our DNA, and has been since 1990. 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 120 employees have signed up for. Our experience and skills are totally dedicated to security in information technology. Over 50 per cent of the DAX 30 and many international companies already benefit from TÜViT-tested security.

Independence

... 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 accreditations as well as certificates of national and international organisations prove our independence

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

Our business figures

In 2015 TÜViT generated a turnover of 14.8 million euros with a total of 117 employees. In 2016 the turnover was 16,3 million euros with a total of 124 employees.
