The continuous growth of AOE is mirrored in this year’s agency ranking by the German “Bundesverband digitale Wirtschaft” (German “Federal Union of Digital Business”, BVDW). For the first time, AOE is among the top 30 companies in the ranking. As a specialized web provider and Open Source integrator, AOE successfully competes with large media agencies both in Germany and internationally.

In BVDW's 2015 agency ranking, AOE climbed seven positions compared to last year’s ranking. Compared to five years ago, AOE climbed from rank 61 to 29 – a continuous upward trend. Parallel to the positive trend in the agency rankings, the number of employees and revenue are also increasing.

With 103 employees at the end of 2014, AOE had 20 more employees than in 2013 – an increase of approximately 24 percent. The acquisition of German agency AIJKO was one of the reasons the number of employees increased to 150 employees to date.

The revenue growth also continued to increase. In the previous year, revenue totaled 7.14 million Euro; in this year’s ranking, AOE increased its revenue beyond the ten-million-euro threshold for the first time, which equates to an increase of 40.2 percent year-on-year.

Combining expertise in cybersecurity: AOE launches subsidiary Bare.ID

WIESBADEN, August 09, 2021 - AOE, one of the world's leading service providers for digital transformation, headquartered in Wiesbaden, the capital of the German state of Hesse, is launching Bare.ID, a fully-managed-as-a-service identity, authentication and authorization solution. Hosted exclusively as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point in German data centers, the identity management solution administers a directory of identities (PII) and their access rights to the various applications. AOE guarantees the highest security standards and complies with German data protection regulations. Bare.ID serves as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point for application landscapes and connects all services via standard protocols such as OpenID Connect or SAML. Furthermore, Bare.ID manages information about the identities of users. These can either be maintained manually by the customer or can be connected via federation techniques to external identity sources such as an existing Active Directory or Identity and Access Management System at the customer's site, but also third party single sign-on systems. At the same time, Bare.ID enables customers to obtain an overview of accesses, login failures, insecure or expired passwords or orphaned accounts for their internal compliance reports and then also to integrate these into their own security incident event monitoring. IT departments can thus be sustainably supported and relieved in the creation and administration of user accounts – while adhering to company-internal compliance guidelines. Thanks to preconfigured applications, users can use Bare.ID without any specialist knowledge; the technical complexity and the security-relevant configurations are not visible to the user. The fact that the proper handling of personal data and business-critical information is no longer a voluntary option is well known. Bare.ID stores all data in daily backups highly secure alternatively in two data centers located in Germany. "Our participation in the initiatives "IT Security – Made in Germany", "Software Hosted in Germany" as well as Cloud Services – Made in Germany" are proof of trustworthy security solutions from AOE. Bare.ID thus complies with strict German data protection laws," says Steffen Ritter, Commercial Director Cybersecurity at AOE GmbH.
