Hamburg, Germany 24 March 2015 – secucloud announced today that the Berlin-based investment company Heilemann Ventures has decided to invest in the company, which provides security mechanisms for protection against cybercrime and industrial espionage threats. Ferry Heilemann, who is also the co-founder of the German couponing site DailyDeal, will in addition take up a seat on the secucloud advisory board. The secucloud security mechanisms, which protect users against cybercrime and spying attempts, are located in a private cloud for each individual customer and protect all the connected devices, whether they belong to private households or companies. Being a cloud solution, no software installation or configuration is required and everything – including updates – runs automatically in the background. Regardless of device or running system – desktop computers, smartphones, tablets, smart meters or smart fridges – users benefit from security technologies that, so far, have only been available to large enterprises with plenty of financial muscle. Users also benefit from secucloud’s extremely attractive subscription fees.The brothers Fabian and Ferry Heilemann became famous in the internet world for having sold their successful company DailyDeal to Google. In 2013 the brothers bought back the company from the internet giant and have since made it profitable. With their investment company Heilemann Ventures, the brothers support ambitious European entrepreneurs with disruptive business models in the internet and software industry.Ferry Heilemann comments: “We were impressed by the idea of security at the touch of a button, the resulting product, the strong team and its first successes. In a short space of time, secucloud has already managed to win some major customers as well as a string of awards. We believe that this strong offering, based on simplicity and security at the highest level, will be able to assert itself on the market – and we want to be part of that success story.” Dennis Monner, secucloud founder and CEO, adds: “The Heilemann brothers are almost a legend within the German start-up scene and have demonstrated how to create successful new business models in the digital era. We’re very proud that Ferry Heilemann is joining us and hope that his experience and contacts will help us turn our company into a real success story.” Further information:phronesis PR GmbHMarcus EhrenwirthUlmer Strasse 160D-86156 Augsburg, GermanyTel.: +49 (0) 821 444 800Fax: +49 (0) 821 444 80 22 E-Mail: info@phronesis.deInternet: www.phronesis.desecucloud GmbHAleksander GroshevGrosse Bleichen 21D-20354 Hamburg, GermanyTel.: +49 (0) 180 5 015 437Fax: +49 (0) 180 5 015 438E-Mail: aleksander.groshev@secucloud.comInternet: http://secucloud.com/deSecucloudSecucloud, based in Hamburg, Germany, provides security for the internet of things.
