About GVD-IT

The future of your company depends on the effectiveness of your information security

For over 5 years, GVD-IT has been helping medium-sized companies and IT service providers protect sensitive data and processes in accordance with the highest information security standards.

“Effective information security requires much more than an antivirus program and a firewall. ”

Manuel Schuster
Founder & CEO of GVD-IT


Between 2011 and 2015, Manuel Schuster advised the most important German partners as an account manager at McAfee.

His task:
To help companies and IT service providers build robust IT security for themselves or their portfolio.
He noticed again and again that companies were not using nearly all modern options to reliably protect their sensitive data and processes.
Enabling companies to get maximum security for their data and processes fascinated him so much that he began to display the necessary expertise and gain even more practical experience.


His development did not go unnoticed and so in 2015 he was recruited by Bohnen IT, where, as a consultant to the Managed Security Service Provider, he got to know further facets of information security — from a system house perspective. There he recognized the opportunities for IT service providers who expand their offerings with a solid information security concept.

That is exactly what he did one year later as a Business Development Manager at Innovate SYSTEMS, where he spent two years building up a new business area based on 8MAN authorization management, which still exists today.


After 8MAN was bought by Solarwinds in 2018 and Manuel Schuster set up another business segment — this time with PAM — at Osirium, he founded GVD-IT. Since then, GVD-IT has been supporting ambitious IT service providers such as comcrypto in setting up new, lucrative business areas.

This was followed by certificates for ISO 27001 and CISIS12, from which medium-sized companies such as troy or customers of the vbw housing industry directly benefit when developing a solid ISMS.

They all make full use of the options offered by modern information security standards.

They all benefit from holistic security for their data and processes and a solid business model that meets a high level of demand.
