Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Deciding to open a new market is one thing; how you open it is quite another. There is no one-size-fits-all recipe for doing this. Instead, choosing the right business partner may be the difference between success and failure.
If your company is related to the technology sector we might be able to help you in Brazil.
Uniwares have been in software development for over 20 years knowing both sides of the business as a development company and also the commercial pitfalls of different markets and cultures.
Since Andreas Saurwein left the company, we worked very hard to reinvent Uniwares and we have been successful in opening the market in Brazil for companies from Europe and Asia.

The Full Story
UNIWARES Information Security Systems is a technology company that started its activities in 1996 in Austria, dedicated to the creation, development, and marketing of high-quality software and solutions of value in the areas of Information, Internet, and Network Security.
A few years later, it moved its operation to Germany and became very popular in the late nineties by developing games for Nokia and by launching the ICQTracker. The recognition in the developer’s field did not take long: by making TrueBlue available as open-source code, Uniwares acquired respect for its clean and safe codes. Some tools, also available as open-source, became highly recognized – for example, FullAttrib and IIS IPMap.
In 2002, Mac Marques, a Brazilian network security professional who has been working with Uniwares since the end of 1999, joined the company as a business partner in Brazil.
"Until 2002, we worked exclusively developing specialized applications “on-demand” for the corporate market – especially in Europe, where we had clients such as Nokia, Lauda Air, National Bank of Austria, German Telecom, Microsoft, among many others. Andreas and I saw an opportunity and we decided to join forces to invest in developing our own proprietary product", said Mac Marques.
At the end of 2003, Uniwares launched "Leon Anti-Spam Server" which completely changed the way the company offered services through package systems and software. In 2007 Uniwares sees the expansion of its product lines, not only with Leon Anti-Spam Server, but also with "Rufus Secure Mailing Management", "AnaLog Windows Event Log Analyzer", "StorMail eMail Storage Suite", "Legatus Mail Server" and "Elwin – Event Log Monitor for Windows".
Developing and using state-of-the-art technology, Uniwares always offered higher quality services for organisations seeking continuous and sustainable solutions. With applications written in C/C++, all products have, as a main principle, performance, security, and scalability.
In this way, Uniwares firmly positioned itself on the market as a company in the field of Information Security and continued to develop corporate applications with advanced products and quality of excellence and assurance.
Unfortunately, in 2010 Andreas Saurwein, CTO and founder of Uniwares started the process of leaving the company to pursue a new challenge. "Though we've been preparing it for years, I was devastated! Andreas was the heart and soul of the company. My best friend, a business partner, and the best co-worker I have ever had. We knew back then that Uniwares had to change and that would be a hard task..." Mac Marques.
By 2014, Uniwares had already begun outsourcing for the IT segment, experiencing significant growth with the addition of new business partners from the infrastructure sector.
In the following years, Uniwares slowly discontinued its line of products and focused as an Integrator for the IT market.
Nowadays, Uniwares is the perfect hub for all companies targeting the Brazilian market. "The knowledge we have acquired having the company based in Brazil for almost 20 years allowed us to improve our connections with resellers, distributors, and clients all over the country."
