Framework Agreement for the supply of Airlock software licenses
Thinking Objects GmbH has concluded a framework agreement with the Procurement Office of BMI for the supply of Airlock software licenses, software maintenance and product-related services with a term of up to four years.
The aim of the framework agreement is to make Airlock – the application security software from the manufacturer Ergon Informatik AG – and related services available to the direct federal administration and other indirect authorities. Thinking Objects GmbH has included SVA System Vertrieb Alexander GmbH as a subcontractor in the tender and finally received the contract from the procurement office.
The Airlock Secure Access Hub combines the important IT security topics of filtering and authentication into a well-coordinated overall package that sets standards in terms of usability and services. The Airlock Secure Access Hub covers all the important functions of modern application security: from a Web application Firewall (WAF) awarded by specialist journalists, to a Customer Identity & Access Management (cIAM) with integrated strong authentication (2FA), which Swiss banks trust, to API and microservice security that meets the latest requirements. The Airlock IT security solution protects more than 20 million active digital identities and 30,000 backends from over 600 customers around the world.
The procurement office had examined the performance of the contractors in detail from an economic and technical point of view and assumed a gold partner status. According to Ergon, Airlock Gold partners are proven Airlock experts who have excellent know-how and a broad customer base. They are a very good choice for successful airlock projects and smooth operation.
“Especially in view of the growing threat situation due to cyber attacks, the BMI Procurement Office is securing urgently needed procurement to strengthen IT security with this agreement,” says Markus Klingspor, Managing Director of Thinking Objects GmbH.
