Egon

Brazilian Porcupine - Coendou prehensilis

In 2012 we introduced the porcupine Egon as an integral part of our corporate identity. The porcupine resonates particularly well with our corporate philosophy, because it is one of the few animals on Earth that needs to fear no natural enemies due to its innovative defense strategy.
The spines are the longest in the entire realm of mammals and are of very different nature, so that they provide optimum protection to each body site.
Even much larger predators do not try to attack a porcupine, and if they try, well let’s just say they won´t try again! And the same could be said of those who might try to attack our customers’ data. However, porcupines are not unpleasant fellows though, quite the contrary. They are very easy to care for, need social contact and are playful. Towards their own they can re-orientate their spines so that they do not hurt them and they snuggle up in cold weather to keep each other warm. Our solution is designed the same way. Although it protects very effectively, it is are friendly to administrators and users. The administration is very intuitive and the protective measures take place in the background. This way the users are not disturbed whilst going about their daily work.
