secunet acquires stashcat and focuses on secure messaging and video conferencing

[Essen, 10 May 2021] Last Friday, secunet Security Networks AG signed an agreement to acquire Hannover-based stashcat GmbH. stashcat enables secure, DSGVO-compliant messaging with integrated file storage and video conferencing functionality. More than one million users already use stashcat.

"It is hard to imagine our everyday life without messenger apps. In contrast to other messengers, stashcat clearly focuses on security and data protection - this is an excellent match for secunet's requirements and those of our customers," explains Axel Deininger, CEO of secunet. "With the acquisition of stashcat, we are creating an additional offering for secure and flexible communication and collaboration in companies, administration and security authorities such as the police."

"We are pleased to have found a strong partner in secunet, who wants to continue stashcat's successful history together with us," comments stashcat CEO Christopher Bick.

The acquisition adds another building block to secunet's powerful cyber security portfolio: For companies and public authorities, stashcat offers a genuine, DSGVO-compliant alternative to established messengers and file repositories such as WhatsApp and Dropbox.
