Arbit Cyber Defence Systems is the first company in Europe to receive new ECSO label

Arbit Cyber Defence Systems, a Danish cybersecurity company based in Copenhagen has become the first European company to be assigned the new Cybersecurity Made in Europe label launched by the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO).

Arbit offers a complete range of certified and accredited cross domain solutions using data diode technology, designed for separated high security networks.

"It has always been our mission to ensure that the right information is available at the right time – both in governmental institutions and on the battlefield," said CEO Rasmus Borch. "We have substantial knowledge in this area and we are ready to make this knowledge available to commercial customers, as well as suggest solutions for critical infrastructure."

ECSO decided to launch the label as a new marketing-tool, designed to promote European cybersecurity companies and increase their visibility in the European and global market, raising awareness of the strategic value of cybersecurity companies from in Europe and developing their business based on trustworthy European values.

In Denmark, the label is issued by CenSec, the national Danish cluster for Defence, Space and Security, a cluster - of which Arbit Cyber Defence Systems is a member.

Two other CenSec members have obtained the label since Arbit was successful and several others have shown an interest.
