ONEKEY, the Leading European Product Cybersecurity & Compliance Platform, receives Investment from PwC Germany

PwC Holdings Germany GmbH, PwC Germany’s investment company for industrial growth capital, has acquired a minority stake in ONEKEY GmbH, headquartered in Duesseldorf.

ONEKEY, a portfolio company of eCAPITAL, has received several awards in recent months, including international ones, and is the leading European product cybersecurity & compliance platform. It simplifies and accelerates the review and management of existing and future cybersecurity & compliance product requirements for manufacturers.

ONEKEY automatically checks and identifies critical security vulnerabilities in embedded software, especially in Internet-of-Things devices, and monitors and manages them throughout the entire product development cycle. To do this, it also breaks down binary codes using a patent-pending, proprietary technology, scans the broken-down software for vulnerabilities and prioritises the scan results. With the new, also patent-pending, Compliance WizardTM, manufacturers can quickly and easily check current and future legal compliance requirements such as IEC62443, EU Cyber Resilience Act and many others, manage them online in dialogue and monitor them fully automatically. The integrated software supply chain analysis (SBOM) also identifies software components in minutes.

The ONEKEY platform is available online worldwide. Leading international companies from the manufacturing, automotive, telecommunications and infrastructure sectors, among others, are already benefiting from the automated testing, management, and monitoring of their smart products.

We are very pleased that PwC Germany Holdings GmbH has recognised the potential of our team, our platform and the market and is honouring this with a direct investment in our company. We will use the additional funding to help manufacturers worldwide achieve product cybersecurity & compliance easier, faster and with less effort.

Jan Wendenburg, CEO, ONEKEY GmbH

The investment in ONEKEY GmbH is the first investment in our portfolio in the area of IoT cybersecurity expertise. Resilience in this segment is becoming an increasingly important success factor in a world where cyber attacks are on the rise.

Matthias Odrobina, Managing Director, PwC Holdings Germany GmbH

We are very looking forward to having PwC Holdings Germany on board as a strong and competent partner for ONEKEY to support ONEKEY's further growth path as a leading firmware security analysis and compliance platform.
