Welcome to Pohle & Schultes AG, an IT-Services Company located in Europe. We service Customers currently in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Belgium, France, Netherlands and UK in English as well as in German.
The field Security in Networks today covers the Design, Setup and Operation of Network-Firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems and Virus Scanners with a focus on secure configuration and monitoring of these devices. Our Security laboratory serves for investigation of Viruses and Malware and we create forensic backups of IT Devices that serve as evidence in law courts.
For your firewalls and intrusion detection systems we serve as an external agency, that analyzes your logdata and maintains configurations from a neutral position and without personal relations to your staff. As an external instance we check firewall configurations of your internal staff and thus provide an additional layer of security to make sure, no unintentioned security leaks are configured.
We help in Investigations and Handling of APT Attacks, which affects not only large technology driven companies but an increasing number of small companies and startups.
In our second core area Database Programming we create Applications in Microsoft Access, Visual Basic und VBA according to your requirements. For the datastore of our Access and VB Applications we prefer Microsoft SQL Server, in addition we offer Projects with Oracle or MySQL.
We have ready-to-go interfaces for the connection to Microsoft Outlook (send and recieve of Records or attachments as E-Mails, Access to Contacts and Calendarentries), LDAP Directories, Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft SCCM, Blackberry Enterprise Server, VMWare vSphere and some remote Access Gateways.
We create Outlook forms and workflows with Outlook Forms, create and run platform independent Workflowapplications for Project Controlling across companies (e.g. for controlling subcontractors) and design and maintain Extranet Application.

Working since 1987 in Communication Projects (the first was a european Network built with IBM AS/400 Systems which for the first time made it possible for the Employees to communicate together with a new medium called “E-Mail”), Messaging and Mobile Communication was one of the Building Blocks during the years. This consists of Microsoft Exchange in all Versions, Scanning for Viruses, Fighting Spam and the connection of mobile Devices via ActiveSync or Blackberry Enterprise Server.
Since 1999 we offer our Filter-Services to purge Spam and Viruses from your E-Mail Datastream and deliver only useful E-Mails to your E-Mail Servers and your Users.
