Riscure turns 20

This September, Riscure celebrates its 20th anniversary. With a worldwide presence and more than 150 employees, Riscure today is the leading device security lab and solution provider for a variety of industries. 20 years ago, Riscure was founded by Marc Witteman just like many technical startups – in a garage.

Riscure was founded by Marc Witteman, at the time already an expert in the field of chip security. After working for the leading players in the payment industry, Marc decided to open his own shop with a dream of creating unique tools to test the security of embedded devices. The first prototype of a Riscure tool for Side Channel Analysis was created soon after. In 2005 Marc, together with a small team of security professionals, created the first version of what is now known as Riscure Inspector.

Marc Witteman, Founder and CEO at Riscure, comments: “We succeeded in packaging highly sophisticated knowledge into flexible standard equipment, thus enabling fast and reliable hardware security evaluation for labs and chip vendors.”
