secunet is therefore targeting and strengthening its Homeland Security division with specialists in electronic identity documents. Employees from a section of HJP Consulting will provide extensive expertise in the safeguarding and review of eIDs and, with their knowledge, represent a fantastic addition to the activities of the Homeland Security division.
secunet will be adding GlobalTester to its range of test software.
