Silobreaker becomes first UK company to join Northrop Grumman cyber security initiative

We’re delighted to announce that Silobreaker has become the first UK company to join Cync, a global cyber initiative created by Northrop Grumman and the bwtech@UMBC Cyber Incubator. 

Formed in 2011, the Cync program cultivates the brightest ideas in cyber security and commercialises innovative products for use in the federal marketplace. Silobreaker’s inclusion marks another milestone in the company’s ongoing growth and expansion in the U.S. market. 

Any company on Cync must address critical market needs in at least one of cyber, big data, data sciences, secure mobility or cyber physical systems/critical infrastructure protection. Once selected companies benefit from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County’s extensive research resources and have onsite access to Northrop Grumman cyber security experts who will provide both technical and business advisory support.

“The technology emerging from the Cync program is truly leading-edge,” said Chris Valentino, program director, Cyber and Intelligence Mission Solutions, Northrop Grumman. “That’s why we launched it; to get these ideas out of the proverbial ‘garage,’ cultivated and making a difference for our customer. I continue to be amazed at the endless stream of innovation and pleased that we can help these companies nurture their technology and business plans to make a difference in global security.” Read More.

Kristofer Mansson, CEO and Co-Founder, Silobreaker added: “It’s especially exciting to be the first UK-based company to be accepted onto Cync and we look forward to contributing to what is a fantastic initiative. Over the past few years we’ve built up a strong client base in the States; U.S. organisations now account for around half  of Silobreaker’s business. Cync gives us a platform to reach the federal marketplace where innovative cyber security technology like ours is increasingly required.”
