BalaBit Values

Communities

We believe in creating values together, since for us the experience and knowledge of our communities is a part of the product. We aim to develop long-term, mutually advantageous communication with the communities around and within BalaBit, and provide space and visibility for them on our community sites.

Openness

We believe in the strength of open and frank conversation, sharing information and knowledge, in terms of human relationships, technology and standards alike. Being open is the foundation of our flexibility and competitiveness in a rapidly changing market environment.

 

Respect

Respect is a principle that – in addition to customer focus – puts the human into the center. Respect is also a management principle. We believe that individuals and communities must be treated with respect, and a climate of trust must be built and maintained.

Quality

Quality for us means that not only our clients, but also our development engineers are absolutely satisfied with our products. Understanding and acknowledging customer requirements and requests is needed for the former, engineers dedicated towards quality for the latter.

 

Innovation

The need for continuous improvement, learning and development derives from ancient philosophies stating that the most important enemies to overcome is ourselves. The secret of true success is to constantly exceed ourselves and to demolish our own boundaries. Innovation requires vibrant, creative workplace culture and an environment for positive thinking, where teams and individuals can be proud of their achievements.

Performance

The success of BalaBit comes from being performance oriented. We expect our staff to bring the maximum out of his capacity and skills. BalaBit puts an emphasis on everyone seeing and understanding his role in the company, and demonstrating his dedication through personal commitment.

 

Ideals

We believe in the universal values focusing on the ideal of an honest, clean, environmentally conscious, and socially liable company, which is global and local at the same time.

Leading by the example

We believe that education and managing by the example pays, since teaching is the highest level of learning, which provides another point of view, recognition and confidence for the teacher. BalaBit wishes to be an exemplary IT security company.
