RadarServices among the Top 80 in the Financial Times Ranking

For the fourth consecutive year, RadarServices has made it into the Top 100 of the fastest growing companies in Europe. In the industry-independent ranking “Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies FT 1000”, RadarServices achieved a place of 72nd after 95th place in 2018 and 29th place in 2019.

RadarServices has already received several awards in previous years: The trend continues in 2019, with 69 2016th place and 93 2017th place in the Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 500 Ranking and FT 1000 of the Financial Times. In 2019, the European cyber security company even took 72nd place in the internationally renowned ranking. The company achieved 1.359 percent absolute sales growth. In the period under review, the number of employees at the company doubled.

RadarServices expands its Security Operations Center in Vienna

RadarServices continues to grow and its Security Operation Center is being expanded. It now covers more than 600 m2 and a total of two floors to offer sufficient space for security experts and analysts. With this expansion, RadarServices implements another milestone in its successful growth strategy.
The increasing number of customers and the demand for RadarServices’ offers require not only an increase in personnel but also an increase in space. RadarServices is thus home to one of the largest and most modern Security Operation Centers in Europe. Following the establishment of a SOC in Vaduz and the expansion of the SOC in Vienna, this growth can be accompanied with full vigour.

Cyber Security Report

RadarServices focuses on cybersecurity. That is why it is important to understand concerns, software and IT landscapes of customers as well as processes and the environment in which these systems are used. This also applies to the risks that we do not look at in isolation, but understand in their context. In our annual review, our experts provide tips on a wide range of security areas – from operational technology to small and medium-sized enterprises and the Internet of Things. But of particular importance are their cybersecurity tips to improve security.

Brief Report on the current Cybersecurity Threat Situation

The experts at Europe’s largest Cyber Defence Centre keep an eye on what’s happening around the world. Looking back on the first quarter of 2019, they report on numerous vulnerabilities that can be exploited for targeted attacks.

In the first quarter, a number of serious vulnerabilities and gaps in various technology companies were identified and closed by security updates.
Cisco released a flawed security patch for their router models RV320 and RV325. Instead of fixing the vulnerabilities, they blacklisted curl (a popular command line tool for transferring data):

  • CVE-2019-1652 – allows a remote attacker to inject and run admin commands on the device without a password.
  • CVE-2019-1653 – allows a remote attacker to get sensitive device configuration details without a password.

Therefore, the vulnerabilities are still exploitable by simply switching tools. It is also still possible with curl because its user agent can be changed easily.
Two zero-day vulnerabilities have been found in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer that allow attackers to steal user information. A specific element can force the performance API of the browser to forward called URLs. These URLs can contain sensitive information such as user names or session/OAuth tokens. A researcher uncovered the vulnerabilities 10 months ago.

Google disclosed two zero-day vulnerabilities that were actively exploited together. One is a use-after-free vulnerability (CVE-2019-5786) in Google Chrome that was patched in version 72.0.3626.121. The other is a local privilege escalation in the Windows win32k.sys kernel driver (CVE-2019-0808) affecting Windows 7 and Server 2008. It was patched in Microsoft’s monthly update in March. When a system is affected by both vulnerabilities, they can be chained to introduce malicious code into vulnerable systems.


The Radar Academy @ Cybersecurity World Vienna picks up speed! Several partners have already taken part in the training courses in order to deepen their technical know-how under the guidance of the IT experts from RadarServices. Further training offers will follow.
