Walter Sprenger and Ivan Bütler founded Compass Security Network Computing AG In 1999 with the focus on performing simulated hacker attacks on IT systems for test purposes. This core activity of finding weak points in IT systems and creating security analysis reports is still the core business focus and today the company has become an established player in the IT security industry.
Currently, the subsidiary company Compass Security Schweiz AG (with headquarters in Jona SG) handles the core business. It is also represented in western Switzerland with an office in Bern. Compass Security Deutschland GmbH, located in Berlin, is responsible for the German and Austrian markets.
