DIT founder scene

Security for the software industry – university start-up draws up a balance

22.9.2020 | THD-Pressestelle

Software for IT security may soon come from Deggendorf. The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) is currently supervising the start-up company XENTEC. Financed by a scholarship, the two-member founding team wants to build up an IT security company. Initial product tests with pilot customers are already underway.

Nicolai Roider and Sebastian Schreiner want to create maximum IT security in all areas of the software industry and their own company. Their first product is to be a software with which other software manufacturers can protect their product. The mission is to set a new standard in data encryption and data protection.

They are supported by the DIT Start-up Campus, the Hans Lindner Foundation and by an EXIST start-up grant from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. The two founders have already achieved quite a bit in their first half year as scholarship holders. The first Xentec product is patent pending. Initial tests have shown a positive response from pilot customers. Their feedback is currently flowing into the further development of the software. Anyone looking for Xentex on the Internet will have to be patient a little longer. The development work currently requires the full attention of the two founders.

The team of the DIT Start-up Campus is always open for innovative ideas. If you would like to become a founder, you can contact us via e-mail startupcampus@th-deg.de.
