Background and History

CyberTwice, as a young RegTech company, evolved from previous organizations, which were prominent in the market for compliant voice recording and archiving solutions. The founder of CyberTwice, Mr. Sil Steffens, has been active in professional voice recording solutions since 1985 when he started CyberTech. CyberTech products like the DSC-tap card and MynaVoice, the world's first distributed recording system with fingerprint and advanced encryption on all calls, were successfully sold to many banks globally and supported the company's growth. This resulted in 2010 to the #3 position in the global voice recording market with more than 50% of the top 50 Global Financials as a customer. NICE Systems acquired the company in 2011.

The US’s Dodd-Frank financial act passed in 2010 and the EU adoption in 2014 of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II, article 16) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) have caused a more than 100% increase in recorded and analyzed audio data within banks and financial institutions.

The experiences with CyberTech, the changes and challenges in the communications compliance market caused by the new regulations, and innovative ideas about new architectures and compliance solutions convinced Sil Steffens and like-minded associates from the industry to start a new company named IP-Lease B.V. After two years of intensive research and development the organization introduced the eRecorder HD and signed in the meantime a partnership agreement with a leading Global Mobile Network Equipment manufacturer for distribution. In September 2016, the leading Dutch telecom service provider decided to integrate the eRecorder HD into their core mobile network and offer Mobile Voice Recording service to their financial clients and other enterprise customers. With this step, the door has been opened for global growth, and to increase market awareness, the company name was changed to CyberTwice.

In 2011, CyberTech was sold to their primary opponent; NICE Systems Ltd. Sil spent the next couple of years looking after his beautiful collection of British sports cars. Still, innovation is in his blood, so he decided to have another go and started CyberTwice.
