This year’s Elevator Pitch LIVE competition is just days away (get your tickets here), so we thought we’d tell you a little bit more about the exciting Cybersecurity startups pitching on the day.
The competition – our annual quest to find the top rising stars in UK technology – is sponsored by Kreston Reeves, Cisco, Stirling Ackroyd, EY and Digital Radish and will see 15 shortlisted startups pitch to a room full of entrepreneurs, investors and industry heavyweights.
Here are the top three UK Cybersecurity startups pitching on the day:
This London-based company is developing Cognition, the ‘first’ real-time, integrated intelligence offering for cyber defence.
Founded in April 2014, the self-funded startup remained dormant until very recently and signed up its first Cognition paying client in June.
A month later, in July, Fortitude came out of stealth mode and claims to have reached £500,000 in revenue in August.
