Cyber-attacks are increasing relentlessly: nearly half of all users and companies have fallen victim to internet based attacks – with a clear upward trend. In the worst case, such attacks can cause millions in damages and a major hit on the affected organization's reputation. According to Bitkom, the German IT industry association, data theft, sabotage and digital espionage cost the German economy EUR 51 billion annually. As such, IT security can decide between success and failure. But for security measures to be effective, they have to be easy: easy to obtain, easy to use and easy to manage. This goes beyond individual software solutions. To benefit from the opportunities presented by digitization, companies need IT security at all levels. A security concept that spans the entire value chain – from data center to network to the smartphones in users' pockets.
Security solutions from a single source
Our solution: Magenta Security acts like a protective cyber-shield, protecting against internet-based threats. And its simplicity is one of its most effective features. Companies and users get all solutions from a single source – for example, a Deutsche Telekom line directly with the matching security package. It's not for nothing that the Experton Group has named Deutsche Telekom the leading vendor for security solutions in Germany (Security Vendor Benchmark 2016). We have been protecting our own business against cyber-attacks for over 20 years, enabling us to offer companies robust, end-to-end protection – from consulting to early detection and emergency defense.
The Magenta Security Portfolio

Solution Design & Implementation
Security concepts for digitization and networking: comprehensive and flexible, integrated in the customer's corporate and IT strategies for identifying and defending against cyber-attacks.
Data security is more than just a duty; it's a crucial matter: We implement data protection from the foundations up (following a "privacy by design" approach), whether we are working on our products, services or features.
When we create new products and systems, we apply a procedure that integrates data security and data protection from the earliest development stages. This significantly lowers the risk of falling victim to a cyber-attack.

Secures user devices against unauthorized access, including attacks through wireless connections and vulnerabilities in mobile operating systems.
Industrial Control Systems Security
Certificates for secure machine identities: fully-automated identity management forms the foundation for a secure Internet of Things.
The Telesec Chipcard Operating System, certified by the German Federal Office for Information Security: the foundation for secure identities in personal and business applications.
Operational Security SOC/SIEM
Advanced cyber-defense services: combines our extensive experience with the latest technologies for protecting against modern attacks, which might fly under the radar of conventional security measures.
Stop hacker attacks in their tracks
Companies are digitizing their business processes. Customers continue to intensify their use of mobile solutions and cloud applications. The mountain of data is growing relentlessly, demanding ever-better storage and computing capacities – preferably scalable. At the same time, neglecting security would be a big mistake.
Deutsche Telekom takes a "zero impact" approach with its Magenta Security portfolio, for maximum security: prevent cyber-attacks before they occur. The elements: the early detection of risks and comprehensive prevention. In addition, companies and users benefit from reliable networks and data centers, strict data privacy and end-to-end service – with everything as simple as possible. Deutsche Telekom customers form an alliance against cyber-attacks behind the Magenta Security protective shield.
Deutsche Telekom has a large number of international subsidiaries, from Greece and Romania to the USA and South Africa, and serves over 160,000 business customers worldwide. The organization has introduced consistent privacy policies and mechanisms across the globe.
The Deutsche Telekom network is attacked by hackers up to four million times a day, according to the Cyber Security Response Team (CERT) at the corporation’s Cyber Defense Center. This team of security specialists uses smart analysis tools to detect unusual behavior patterns across the network.
The Privacy & Security Assessment (PSA) methodology is integral to ensuring exceptional security and data protection at Deutsche Telekom. When it comes to software, telecommunications devices or network components, hackers are quick to exploit any chinks in the armor. With this in mind, Deutsche Telekom adheres to the principle of security by design.
Deutsche Telekom wanted to be sure its own applications were secure and compliant with German data protection legislation. To this end, the corporation tested 30 Deutsche Telekom applications to assess their level of data protection and security – an important task, as these applications can access large volumes of personal data.
Deutsche Telekom's team of over 1,000 security specialists includes experts that scour offices, meeting rooms, hotels and private spaces for tiny listening devices – often just a few millimeters in size.
