Straight out of school, Maymann started his professional career as Unix System Manager at the American IT giant Hewlett Packard. He went on to work as Unix System Consultant for the largest danish media enterprise - DR.
Later, he co-founded a IT security company called RackOut, where he served as CEO.

Maymann is currently working as a Unix System Specialist at Nokia.



Maymann has been involved in numerous projects in both HP and DR regarding Network, Security, Monitoring, Unix and Backup.

With the founding of RackOut the ideas was given free rein. He and Dyekjaer developed a smart new IP telephony system - TeleOut.dk. They immediately saw the opportunity of making a fully automated telephone interview platform for the media and research industry, where companies could go to AnalyseOnline.com and manage their interviews.
This way revolutionised certain areas of the industry, and is still widely used for collecting free newspaper opinions.

Security was always an essential part of RackOut and they soon decided to develop a new solution that would solve customers security issues regarding mail and web. Both MailScan and WebFilter solutions was already widely represented in the marked, but especially WebFilter was fundamentally changed for the better.
