KRITIS Certification


Critical infrastructures are essential for maintaining important societal functions. Operators of these are therefore required to obtain certification in accordance with the BSI-KritisV legal ordinance. This requires auditing of their IT infrastructures, processes and services.

Information Security Management System


The basis for successful KRITIS certification is an Information Security Management System (ISMS) defined by ISO standard 27001. The task of this ISMS is to manage and improve information security in the company. As a holistic approach, it includes organizational and physical security of the company in addition to IT security.

Infrastructure and Services always in View


The SmartCMDB offers comprehensive monitoring including alerting for the entire IT infrastructure as well as all processes and services of KRITIS operators. It thus makes a significant contribution to the operational security of critical infrastructures.

Asset Data at the Push of a Button


ISMS and our SmartCMDB form the perfect team. Thanks to the flexible data model, you are able to digitally represent all IT and non-IT assets – and thus the entire company. You benefit from a central overview of all recorded objects (e.g. hardware and software, contracts, people or processes). In addition, the SmartCMDB records relationships between the individual objects. This means that dependencies or process gaps can be identified quickly.

Operational and Information Security

REALTECH’s SmartCMDB not only enables continuous monitoring of these critical infrastructure areas (through the combination of SmartCMDB and REALTECH Business Service Manager), but also provides a wide range of KRITIS-relevant data – in line with auditor requirements – at the push of a button.

Smooth IT Operation

The monitoring functions including alerting of our SmartCMDB enable smooth IT operation. This means you can relax and don’t have to constantly check whether everything is running properly. This is because you are always reliably informed of any impending complications.

Documentation made easy

With the integrated reporting function of , you can easily keep track of all KRITIS-relevant asset data. This means you can provide information at any time and create up-to-date documentation at the touch of a button – without having to tediously compile the information first. This saves you a lot of work and makes the auditor happy.
