NCSC adds 4 startups to cyber initiative

Four new tech companies have joined a National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and Plexal led initiative to help the government solve some of the UK’s pressing cyber challenges.

The businesses will develop and pilot technology, working at the NCSC For Startups HQ in Cheltenham.

The four startups joining the programme are:

Lupovis: an AI-based deception solution for manipulating adversaries that have penetrated networks. It engages adversaries through a sequence of decoys and lures them through the network.

RankedRight: an automated triage system that ranks and assigns vulnerabilities based on a company’s rules.

ESPROFILER: A platform to help organisations maximise return on their cyber security investments.

Traced: A mobile threat defence solution that provides protection against mobile-borne threats to businesses, without compromising people’s privacy.

“Since its launch, NCSC For Startups has already seen some great collaboration with tech companies, and we’re delighted to welcome this latest group onboard,” said Chris Ensor, NCSC deputy director for cyber skills and growth, NCSC. “These companies all have innovative proposals to improve our collective cyber security and will benefit from the expertise and support we offer.”

Saj Huq, director of innovation at Plexal, said: “Plexal is excited to continue being the NCSC’s innovation partner and helping startups develop or adapt their solutions. NCSC For Startups is an entirely unique opportunity for the public and private sectors to work together, and for startups to gain insights from the NCSC into emerging challenges that we urgently need from the market. Cyber security solutions that solve real-world problems can never be created in an information vacuum.”
