KOBIL Systems adds Thomas Balgheim to its Advisory Board; IT security specialist to develop growth further
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Worms -- With over 25 years of experience, the IT security specialist KOBIL Systems is a pioneer and trendsetter in the field of data security and digital identity. The manufacturer believes that the new developments in the AST and mIDentity product families will provide an opportunity for stronger expansion and to unlock new sales channels and markets.
Based on his experience as a manager at international software and consultancy companies such as SAP and PwC, and most recently as CEO of NTT Data EMEA, Balgheim is a freelance consultant who focuses on supporting technology companies as they grow and become international.
The owner-managed security company KOBIL is an internationally active business that specialised in safeguarding digital applications from early on. A range of incidents in recent years, most recently the NSA hacking scandal, have allowed KOBIL to enjoy increasing success with its range of security products and to continually expand its knowledge advantage.
"I am delighted that Mr Balgheim is contributing his experience and expertise and closely supporting the company's expansion as a new member of the KOBIL Advisory Board, thus assuring the company's success in the long term," said Ismet Koyun, founder and owner of KOBIL. "With this know-how and the latest technological developments, the company will become a trendsetter in the field of identity processing, administering and managing virtual identities," said Balgheim. The two men both believe that this close cooperation is also a sign that they view the dynamism of the current topic in the same way and want to shape the future together.
