INVEA-TECH: JIC Company of the Year 2013

Balancing the last year at JIC while summing up our success stories for EBN network, INVEA-TECH was selected as the most successful company of the year.

INVEA-TECH is a fine example of a hi-tech spin-off with a robust background from academia. With no extra seed funding the company keeps on growing steadily for several years leading to a kickstart of an exponential growth during the last year (including acquisition of one of their partner companies). The company also proves Brno and South Moravia to be a cybersecurity hotspot in both the terms of research and business. INVEA represents the new generation of cybersecurity companies that follow the success of the likes of AVG, AVAST and ESET which scored in the field of antivirus solutions. Solutions offered by INVEA go several steps further monitoring network behavior and not only the actual infection and intrusion.

Starting off from universities

In 2007 workers at Masaryk University got together with workers from the Brno University of Technology and CESNET to form a spin-off called INVEA-TECH. Today they are responsible for monitoring more than a third of the internet in the Czech Republic and offer network solutions all over the world to customers like CISCO or DELL. The FlowMon system, for which Invea was twice commended at the CeBIT fair in Hannover, allows you to increase network security; monitor network flow in real time; detect internal and external attacks, find and fix network incidents and much more.

INVEA-TECH is the leader in the flow monitoring & NBA market which is considered by Gartner as the next generation network security trend complementing and enhancing legacy security products such as firewall and IDS/IPS. Through our FPGA division we excel in 10G/40G/100G packet capture and packet processing technologies.
