Eurofins Digital Testing, a leader in end-to-end quality assurance (QA) and cyber security, has launched a new business unit that focuses solely on cyber security, according to a press release.
The Brussel-based company said the new unit will expand Eurofins’ testing portfolio across the IoT, media, and entertainment sectors.
The new cyber security unit will provide a range of services to new and existing customers, including: “developing effective security programs; training employees; and test applications and devices for vulnerability via audits and ethical hacking programs”.

While many companies continue to alter their cyber security strategies, attackers are still able to bypass their security networks.
It regards key threats as spanning internal enterprise software applications / hardware, physical office locations, service delivery infrastructure content protection methods, billing system, customer-facing applications, and consumer devices including PCs, tablets, mobile devices, connected TVs, set-top boxes, smart home, and IoT devices.
“We view cyber security as a natural extension to our extensive testing solution portfolio to help our customers address their threats and vulnerabilities,” Johan Craeybeckx, Business Line Director, Eurofins Digital Testing International said.
The company announced the appointment of Marcel Mangel, Erik Ruktens, and Sean Walls to lead a team of nearly 100 security experts.
