About Utimaco
Utimaco operates in two highly specialized areas of the global Cybersecurity market: “Information Security”, to protect customers’ critical data, business and financial processes and digital identities as well as “Telecom Solutions” to ensure telecom providers comply consistently with national laws and regulations. The Information Security segment spans from the “root-of-trust” with certified Hardware Security Modules, physical devices protecting proprietary cryptographic secrets and payment processing, to cryptographic key management and data protection applications. The Telecom Solution segment focuses on turnkey solutions for telecoms and ISPs worldwide to comply with legally regulated lawful interception and data retention requirements, optimize telco OPEX through centralized interfaces and provide auditing and security functionality.

The company has strengthened its position as a leading global specialist player over the years, providing a highly customizable product portfolio to a broad range of customers.

Market trends and drivers
Both business lines of Utimaco’s activity benefit from favorable underlying market fundamentals due to growing cyber security requirements in an increasingly digitized world. In lawful interception and data retention (Telecom Solutions), the expected healthy growth is mainly driven by new telecommunication channels and network technologies. In the market for Information Security, demand is expected to grow at double digits thanks to accelerated digitization and the growth of Internet of Things applications

Investment potential
Value creation going forward mainly lies in accelerated organic development, driven by growing market demand and an innovative product portfolio catering to both existing as well as new application markets. International expansion with focus on North America and Asia and an active, structured pursuit of add-on opportunities and partnerships are further pillars to reach the full potential of Utimaco.
