Kevin David Mitnick – American computer security consultant, author, and hacker:

"A company can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on firewalls, intrusion detection systems and encryption and other security technologies, but if an attacker can call one trusted person within the company, and that person complies, and if the attacker gets in, then all that money spent on technology is essentially wasted."

About Us


SignalBlue offers international companies in Korea a wide range of IT and security services.

Why do I need an IT expert?

When opening a (subsidiary) company in Korea, there are usually so many aspects to consider that IT and security topics are often not given the necessary attention. It can regularly be observed that companies deal with this rather "unpopular" topic only superficially. This might be due to a lack of market information or time. Sometimes IT and security related tasks are being appointed to a local employee, whose approach and working standard may deviate from the common practice in the home country. And not only new companies in Korea are affected by this, as the topic is also of great importance for already established companies. In many cases weaknesses or optimization potential are here also not recognized or recognized too late.

SignalBlue supports global companies in Korea with a wide range of IT services. Starting with the initial setup and the setup of hardware and software, to maintenance (or hardening) of infrastructure and security, as well as trainings and seminars. We provide everything you need for your IT infrastructure, secure your valuable data and offer you both personal service on-site and remotely.

Global Standards

Regardless of whether you have only little IT knowledge or are experienced in the field – we will meet you at eye level and answer all your questions about IT.

Our experts have years of experience with all kinds of complex IT related issues and they solve problems with a global approach. In our understanding, smooth business operations can only be guaranteed by means of a clean and efficient IT infrastructure. Often enough IT is something that is seen as given and users only really notice it once it causes problems.

SignalBlue sets up your IT system keeping the standard of the headquarters in your home country. We understand the demands and importance you put on IT infrastructure and security topics and do our best to provide you with the same feeling of security here in Korea. Consequently, you have everything under control without the need to speak Korean or having to deal with cultural barriers. And thanks to our international team, communication is made even easier. A common language connects, encourages exchange and in some cases enables an even more precise process.
