esatus stands for a free, secure, and human-centric digital future. We build bridges between today and tomorrow.
We shape digitalization processes in a future-oriented way and offer solutions from a single source – from conception to individual software development to operational management. Another focus is the field of information security (InfoSec). We take a holistic approach when advising companies on the topic of identity & access management and help them to implement compliance and data protection requirements (GRC).
Since 2015, we have been a passionate driver of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) in Germany and are now one of the global technology leaders. SSI places the individual at the centre of the digital ecosystem and enables user-friendly and self-determined control of personal data.
Precision: We are committed to the 100 percent principle. We do not make promises we cannot keep. We deliver on time and with superior quality.
Freedom: We oppose any attempts by institutions or companies to infringe upon our civil liberties.
Authenticity: For us it is the individual who makes the difference. We are true to ourselves and don’t pretend.
Team spirit: We stand by each other as one team. Always.
