The History of 8com
In 2000, Götz Schartner started operating as an information security consultant in Germany. For the first four years, he headed the company with the help of his wife, Sandra Schartner. In 2004, the company 8com KG was established. The management and the ownership remain firmly in the hands of the Schartner family.
In the first two years of 8com, five employees joined the company.
Until 2007, banks and savings banks were the primary customers of our company. Today, small to mid-sized companies and global corporations form an integral part of our customer base.
Over the course of the following years, the number of information security experts in our company grew. And they all have one thing in common: They live information security. 8com has become a company with more than 30 specialized employees who, together, make life difficult for cybercriminals, thus protecting the knowledge, capital and sometimes even the lives of our customers.
