About AMPEG

Since its founding in 1994, AMPEG has developed from a system integrator for IT security solutions into a software manufacturer specialising in the analysis of the security level for corporate networks.

From the knowledge that has accumulated in more than a decade in IT security, the software Security Lighthouse has been developed in the years 2004 to 2006 - also with the support of some long-time customers.

Our vision: to create visibility for the IT security.

Our mission: to develop and supply an instrument for the Security Level Management that continuously improves the effectiveness of IT security so that the attack surface will be minimised.

The Name

42

AMPEG provides answers. More accurately, AMPEG is the answer – the answer to the central, all-consuming question about the meaning of life, the universe and everything else, as posed in Douglas Adams’ "Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy".

Actually, the answer isn’t “AMPEG” as such; the word is the result of seven-and-a-half million years of calculations by supercomputer "Deep Thought", which arrived at the rather plain solution of "42". Granted, this answer is not very helpful. Blame it on the programmers, who neglected to phrase the original question in plain English.

But 42 does give us the numerical sum of the word AMPEG, obtained by adding up the values of the individual letters (A=1, M=13, P=16, E=5, G=7).

What’s more, the first, the middle and last letters are the same as the initials of AMPEG co-founders Agnes and Peter Graf. But that's only a mere chance.
