Release date- 13032014 - Munich - Rohde & Schwarz expands its IT security portfolio and invests in a strong growth market by acquiring the Leipzig-based producer of network security solutions.
The comprehensive expertise of Adyton Systems is an advantageous addition to the existing Rohde & Schwarz portfolio, strengthening the electronic expert's presence in the network security segment.
