Taking advantage of international opportunities is not only the ambition of Dutch companies with innovative security solutions. International players also view the Netherlands as a gateway for creating business opportunities in Europe. That’s also why the United States firm Dtex Systems decided to establish a European sales and support office on the HSD Campus.
With the arrival of Dtex Systems, The Hague and the National HSD security cluster wel- come a new cybersecurity company that is focused on “insider threats”. Olav van Haren, sales director, explains why Dtex chose the Netherlands.
Strong culture of innovation
‘In preparing our business plan for gener- ating business in the Benelux, we looked at markets that have the highest need for detecting data leaks. The next question was where we should set up a base. The Netherlands separates itself from the rest of the pack because it is viewed, internationally, as the “digital gateway to Europe” with a strong culture of innovation and the ability to quickly adopt innovations.
As a cybersecurity company, it’s important for us to be able to act and respond quickly in the security domain. The national security cluster with the HSD Campus as physical meeting place is the right platform for this. It offers us a great many opportunities for meeting new clients, talents, and partners and for collaborating with other parties.’
