Now, if you didn’t understand any of those words, here is simple explanation: INVEA-TECH develops and markets comprehensive network solutions. Still not enough? Watch one of their webinars and learn more about their activities.

If the tech talk isn’t for you, what you really need to know is that INVEA-TECH is a fine example of a hi-tech spin-off with a robust background from academia. With no extra seed funding the company keeps on growing steadily for several years. They are the leader in the flow monitoring & NBA market which is considered by Gartner as the next generation network security trend. INVEA represents the new generation of cybersecurity companies that follow the success of the likes of AVG, AVAST and ESET which scored in the field of antivirus solutions. Solutions offered by INVEA go several steps further monitoring network behaviour and not only the actual infection and intrusion.

In 2007 workers at Masaryk University got together with workers from the Brno University of Technology and CESNET to form INVEA-TECH as a spin-off. Today they are responsible for monitoring more than a third of the internet in the Czech Republic and offer network solutions all over the world to customers like T-Mobile, Siemens or Raiffeisen Bank. Their FlowMon system was commended at the CeBIT fair in Hannover twice. In 2013 INVEA-TECH was recognized among Deloitte CE Technology Fast 50 as one of the 50 fastest growing tech companies in Central Europe.

INVEA-TECH with its headquarters located in Brno, Czech Republic, is deeply connected to the South Moravian Innovation Centre – participating in professional workshops such as ‘120 Seconds’ networking, helping them to find business partners. "We appreciate the opportunities for networking activities and professional consultation at the JIC,” says Jiří Tobola, Business Director of INVEA-TECH. INVEA is a company completely set up by developers and tech guys.

Their ACE Experience

INVEA-TECH was introduced to the ACE Programme by recommendation of the South Moravian Innovation Centre. Since then, they have participated in the ACE Summit and recently signed agreement with ACE Partner bwcon, on support provided for participation in a major IT security expo.

Thanks to ACE project, INVEA-TECH will have an opportunity to prepare well in advance for one of the most important IT security exhibition in the world it-sa that will be held 7 – 9 October 2014 in Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, Germany. They will be provided with support in marketing, PR activities and arrangement of meetings with potential business partners from DACH region.

In the words of  Rostislav Vocilka, CEO: "under ACE we would like to build an effective marketing strategy that would show our potential customers in Germany how they can effectively protect their company´s networks with us. After the NSA espionage leaks the benefit of having a network behaviour analysis and monitoring tool from a company based in Europe is a strategic advantage and we would like ACE to help us to market this unique value proposition especially in Germany".
