Loihde in brief
Loihde is a service company specialising in digital services and security solutions. Loihde builds digital solutions for customers and protects them from cyber security risks and other security risks. The company helps its customers utilise data and digitalisation and ensure continuity of business.
Loihde operates on the IT and security markets which are central to the development of society. The markets in which Loihde operates are growing, and the company is focusing particularly on growth segments within these markets.
Loihde has two business areas:
The Digital Development business area offers customers Business Intelligence and data utilisation services, as well as development of digital services.
