Clavister is a Swedish company that develops, manufactures and sells network security solutions for telecom operators and medium-sized companies. The company’s solutions are based on proprietary, innovative software with very powerful performance and high quality, of which the recent cooperation agreements with industry bellwethers like Canon and Nokia are proof.
Security in general and network security in particular are areas that are constantly in focus. The balance between personal integrity and security and the balance between efficiency, flexibility and security are just some examples of the aspects that make the area a complex one. We live in a world where the continuous appearance of new technological advances and new ways of communicating requires increasingly advanced powerful network security solutions, without sacrificing efficiency, security or personal integrity. The demand for advanced network security solutions within the telecom area will increase dramatically in conjunction with the increasing implementation of the fourth generation mobile telephony network (4G/LTE). Traffic volumes are also increasing dramatically in conjunction with the increasing use of smart devices.
Clavister has a strong position within network security. The development of solutions for security within telecoms is an area that is showing strong potential, and it is within this area that the company has a unique position, with the right technology, strong business alliances and a clear vision. The area of network security for medium-sized companies is also an area in which the Company is extremely well equipped, with a large existing customer base, a well-designed product portfolio and a strong business model that generates business in both the short and long term. Synergy effects within both these areas also represent an attractive effect that further enhances the company’s potential, and the company’s financial status is good.
Founded in 1997, Clavister’s organisation currently consists of 105 employees, of which 40 work with research and development, 38 with sales and marketing, 15 with administration and 12 with customer support.
Probably the most obvious choice in terms of security related shares, which is why we simply have to mention it in such a context. Securitas is a global knowledge leader in security.
