Build38 Closes an Exceptional 2019, Exhibits at RSA Conference and Continues its Commercial Expansion

MUNICHMarch 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Build38, the global provider of Mobile Application Security made in Germany, closes 2019 at a new high with a total order intake in the single-digit million Euros. As the first full financial year for the company, this gives an encouraging message that its solutions and services are finding the way to market. With existing commercial references in Automotive, Financial Industry, Mobility, and Digital Identity, 2020 is going to be the year for the scaling in those verticals and further growth.

To continue supporting that commercial expansion, Build38 was present as an exhibitor at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, taking place on the last week of February. For almost 30 years, RSA Conference has been a driving force behind the world's cybersecurity agenda. The central point where people from around the world gather to share, learn and grow. Build38 welcomed current, and future, customers, partners, and investors at its booth and had breakthrough discussions and showcased beyond the cutting edge in-App protection capabilities, its Mobile Threat Detection and Analytics latest developments.

The young company was also featured in Europe last week as one of the 12 startup companies selected for the semi-final for the 4YFN Award competition.

As part of the commercial expansion, Build38 has signed agreements for the provision of their solutions and services with several partners, including markets like GermanySpainBulgariaAustriaPhilippinesSingapore and Taiwan. Adding to the existing agreements, the reach of Build38 grows steadily.

Together stronger – Build38 helps fellow Insuretechs with Best in Class analytics and App security

Trust and Analytics are essential for Insuretechs – afterall this is what you sell. Trust is hard to generate – especially for young Insuretechs but for everyone in the industry easy to lose. Munich Insuretech Hub start-up Build38 focuses on trust in mobile Apps – the number one sales channels for the digital natives and is highly praised for its advanced technology, analytical skills and easy integration by Gartner and customers.

 

Build38’s head architect Marc Obrador on Wednesday started prepping fellow Insuretechs for the mobile market, dangers from hackers and attackers and gave a well-received lesson on countermeasures and design principals. Several case studies made the participants review their current strategy: misuse of your process interfaces by malicious attackers or the competition can render your service useless or cause financial damages. Like in the case of one platform app that didn’t secure its interfaces and let an attacker flood its platform with illegal orders to subscribed insurance companies. After trust was lost, so was the business case for this young company. Or when the competition took apart the source code of an app and stole company secrets on underwriting and calculations – another major blow to a young fintech that could have been prevented.

Build 38’s service is the Trusted Application Kit T.A.K (www.build38.com ) that integrates in the app by design and secures code, IP, user data and compliant PSD 2 authentication. The server component gives you great analytics on an app level that let’s you market and control your services better and basically enhances your app to become “self-defending” against attackers and the competition. Marketeers love the insights they gain and because the SDK approach makes development faster, they can try out much more flavours and variances in less time.

As a special treat and to great applause from the teams, Build38 offered the solution free of charge to all fellow Insuretech Startups for the first year: “there is absolutely no reason why you publish an unsecure app”, says Build38 CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Christian Schlaeger. “T.A.K is fast and easy to integrate and lets you focus on the important stuff for your startup: business models and innovation. For us it is a moral obligation and part of the Munich team spirit to make T.A.K usable to every young company in the Munich Insuretech Hub – together we are stronger!”

There is no need to convince him, he is already in or already over it. His support will be as powerful and uplifting for his team as his belief in success. This is why Torsten will also not try to convince anybody else about the need of application security. He cares for mobile security because of deeply personal reasons as – down to the basic layer – we all do. Torstens focus lies on expanding the power of mobile security software, improving the quality and optimizing every step of the journey.

Building Build38

Dr. Christian Schläger – you might know him as Dr. Christian Schlaeger – hits mobile security with handpicked business relations and a truly global perspective on mobile security with tons of experience. His PhD is not a medical titel or just an academic honour, some say it is short for: disruptive thinking. Christian is usually thinking three steps ahead. His answers are as quick as his sense of humour. With his independant mind, his stoicism and his sense for corporate development he managed to gather a team and a vision. Anybody who is in for Build38 is in it because of Christian. The team around him is handpicked and it did not even take him too long to convince everybody to quit their established career and start up new to work even harder. Being the founder of Build38 Christian is CEO of Build38 Germany, Iberia and Singapore and Managing Director of Build38 Germany.

Christian is not your typical bold and adventurous startup guy. He is a family man. His safe heaven is well hidden amongst his two daughters and his wife. Along with his secrets of success, this is where he feels safe. Not too long ago, he would not have thought himself, that his career would take a turn on founding a company at the age of 40. His education on business Information systems in southern Germany and his impressive path within the most established consulting companies of the country already took him, where he wanted to be: ahead of mobile security. Now, that one familiar niche product has shown more power than any other before, his decision was only logical: found a company, commit a team, shape tomorrow before someone else does. Build mobile security to build on. In the best 3 countries to do so. With the best 8 people to start.

Mobile Security is part of Business Intelligence. That’s why it is invisible.


Build38 Munich Office at Werk1 - Werktage

Build38 GmbH, headquarters of Build38 Germany, moved in at the new office space in Munich at Werk1. If only everything was so easy as finding the best office environment for a Munich startup. For founders every day is a working day. Our Build38 Munich headquarters are located at a suburbian district called Werksviertel. The former factory  environment of the 70ies and party district of the 90ies is now a colorful and diverse business area. Contrast is key and opposites unite. Local artists work next to global players. Shared office spaces add up to posh conference rooms.

Industrial style and industrial leftovers are sometimes hard to tell apart. Inbetween long hallways one labyrinth leads to the next one. The fearless mixture is representing life. Work is just a part of it. Even getting lost from time to time seems to be part of the overall plan.

Build38 moved into the 5th floor of Werk1 where glass facades offer a wide view over the urban Munich skyline. The big construction work around the building is exemplary. The growth is unstoppable and tangible here. If you want to discover a new side of Munich come visit. You will be inspired. If you want to talk about mobile application security let’s meet. You will be surprised.
