Peter Landrock, President
In an era where digitalisation has swept over every industry, governments looking to serve their citizens need to keep abreast of the demands of tech-savvy constituents. In order to provide citizens with round-the-clock digital information and other services, public agencies must modernise technology to enhance and update their digital service capabilities. In doing so, enhanced security is one area where organisations need to laser-focus on.
Online security risks are continually rising in both the sheer number of incidents and sophistication. Several high-profile hacking attacks have proven that web security remains the most severe issue for any business that conducts its operations online. One company making great strides in providing robust, secure server solutions to businesses in the public sector is Cryptomathic.
Drawing on nearly three decades of experience, Cryptomathic is well-positioned to offer systems for Authentication & Signing, EMV and Crypto & Key Management, through industry-leading security solutions and services. Cryptomathic was one of the first companies in the world to commercialise cryptographic algorithms and continues to be at the cutting edge of technology to benefit its customers and business partners. The company also holds strong technical expertise and unique market knowledge, with two-third of its employees working in R&D, including an international team of security experts and several world-renowned cryptographers.
With Peter Landrock at the helm as the President, Cryptomathic assists governments on all levels, whether federal or regional, to become efficient without sacrificing security. The company offers a range of products and services to governments such as public services (e.g. eGovernment and eHealth), in addition to ID (for instance electronic passports). Besides, Cryptomathic is the first-choice supplier of secure solutions as all of their products are designed and built to meet the specific needs and requirements of public agencies.

Cryptomathic leverages the combination of broad customer base and application knowledge with the profound technical ability to ensure an optimal solution is delivered to the clients. The efficiency of Cryptomathic can be best exemplified through one of their client success stories. LuxTrust provides various IT services aimed at delivering and enforcing digital trust. It was founded in 2005 between the Luxembourg government and major investors from the private financial sector, to guarantee the promise of secure electronic commerce through technological advancement and a flexible, cost-effective, and user-friendly platform. With extensive experience in delivering market-leading digital trust services, LuxTrust facilitates and protects a broad range of sensitive and confidential transactions performed in the cloud. In 2008 LuxTrust launched its Signing Server Certificate (SSC), which enables residents and organisations from various geographic locations to securely access sensitive online information and to legally sign and certify electronic documents.
With a view to make the service a success, LuxTrust had to take advantage of combining public critical infrastructure (PKI) and two-factor authentication (2FA) to avoid the limitations associated with using the technologies separately. The client approached Cryptomathic to solve the challenging issue of establishing legal value by way of high security (using PKI and 2FA) without costs escalating and destroying the business case. Today, most Luxembourg based institutions, including eGovernment and eBanking, utilise the benefits delivered by LuxTrust’s SSC—a mutual security infrastructure service. The service has also helped organisations and individual users reduce time-consuming processes, costs of document handling, and environmental impacts by going paperless through the provision of electronic signatures on relevant exchanges.
With such innovative features and success stories up its sleeves, Cryptomathic envisions becoming the preferred supplier for protecting valuable digital assets for organisations of all sizes in the future.
