What our customers say about us
FUNKE Media Group
Only a few hours after the attack, the Northwave experts were here at our offices - this was extremely important for all of us, because we knew then that we were not alone in dealing with the problem.
Today, we train the entire workforce on secure passwords and phishing emails. Trained end users are the best firewalls for attacks. And, of course, we are investing significantly more in the topic of IT security. To defend against unavoidable attacks, we permanently rely on 24/7 monitoring by Northwave's experts.
Head of IT
Rödl & Partner
Rödl & Partner cannot - as no company can't, if we are honest - manage its IT security amidst daily changing threat risks and attack patterns all by itself with on-board resources. We need a strong partner to permanently secure our global data traffic, identify threats and protect our systems. Northwave is an indispensable support for this.
Chief Digital Officer
I appreciate it when Northwave's external experts look independently, like a second pair of eyes, at our processes and measures. That's why we rely on Northwave's SOC. Northwave's security experts provide me with peace of mind and additional security in operations, so I know that everything is at least double-checked and continuously monitored. This frees up our IT teams. In addition to the SOC, Northwave's Security Office provides us with many advantages. Everyone in the group can call on the experts for help with security issues, from questions to incident handling. In addition to technical measures, Northwave also assisted with our company's TISAX certification.
CEO and owner
some of our milestones
Scroll through some of our key achievements and successes over the years.
Northwave is founded by current CFO, John van Veen. The company focuses on security in Oracle development projects.
Steven Dondorp takes over the company and expands the focus towards integral security services, merging active threat intelligence with business security best practices.
We undertake our first large incident response assignments, helping clients deal with the earlier forms of digital crime and stately sponsored cyber-espionage.
We launch our Intelligent Security Operations service, where clients can out task their security management and key measures towards their organization, technology and people to us. The service is first in the market and still a unique proposition today.
We are one of the leading companies in founding the industry organization Cyberveilig Nederland. Steven Dondorp becomes chairman of the board of this organization that focuses on private-public cooperation to reinforce the cyber defense of the Dutch society.
Besides opening our DACH headquarters in Leipzig, we also start our tech-a-typical company-wide wellbeing program, compiled of a diversity in activities such as running marathons and piano lessons. We partake in the New York Marathon with 33 runners. We all finish!
We are now the largest Dutch cyber security company that is 100% self-financed and owned by its management. Our management teams are 50-50 female-male. We become the Dutch defense Ministry’s “employer of the year for reserve forces”.
For the fourth consecutive year, Northwave is one of Europe’s fastest growing companies, according to the Financial Times FT 1000. We are now active for clients in more than 15 different countries and employ over 220 dedicated and skillful people.
Our Computer Emergency Response Team has deployed towards hundreds of ransomware and other cyber incidents throughout Europe. The Russian invasion of Ukraine changes dynamics on the cyber battlefield. We have become an authority on dealing with actors and on ransomware intelligence.
