Cheltenham cybersecurity firm shortlisted for National Cyber Award

Cylera, a global specialist in healthcare IoT device cybersecurity, based at Hub8 in the Brewery Quarter, has been shortlisted for Healthtech Business of the Year at the National Go:Tech Awards. The Cheltenham office employs three staff and is run by Steve Bridgen, Head of Cylera for the UK & Ireland.

Hub8 is a co-working space in Cheltenham, dedicated to enabling the growth and development of cyber technologies.

Now in its fifth year, the Go:Tech Awards recognise the achievements of the UK's tech pioneers and innovators. It celebrates excellence and embraces innovation across all categories of the technology industry, from start-ups to market-leading health tech and fin tech organisations, as well as the UK's leading technology entrepreneurs.

The Healthtech Business of the Year category highlights the success of companies leading the way in the medical space, rewarding innovations that positively impact the sector and enhance patient care, as well as showcasing businesses that have delivered exceptional channel growth.

Timur Ozekcin, co-founder and CEO, at Cylera, said: "We're delighted to be named as a finalist in the Healthtech Business of the Year category at the Go:Tech Awards. We've always taken the time to ensure that our platform grows with the needs of the organisations and businesses that our technologies support and protect. The healthcare sector continues to be a prime target for cybercriminals around the world who look to exploit vulnerabilities in essential digital tools and equipment being used by medical professionals to care for patients. Hospital networks will also grow in complexity over the next couple of years as tens of thousands of more medical devices come online which are essential to patient care.'

"Our aim is to continually modify our support and technologies to the evolving medical landscape", continued Timur. "This nomination highlights that we are on the right course and taking the best actions to ensure that we are continuing to help the medical sector carry out their vital work."

Founded in 2017, Cylera, is an agentless medical and healthcare IoT device (IoMT) cybersecurity and intelligence platform which automates the entire process of managing and securing connected devices. Following months of extensive research, prototyping, and testing, in April this year, the company launched its new Cylera Command Platform User Interface so users can distil complex layers of data into a single view, making it even more straightforward to identify assets, analyse risk, and profile and improve medical device management.

Headquartered in New York, the company launched into two new territories in the last 12 months including Madrid, Spain, as well as the UK. It supports global healthcare organisations including a rapidly increasing number of the UK's NHS Trusts, with revenues increasing 300% year on year since 2021. Its global team of experts has also grown by 30% over this time.

The Go:Tech Awards evening is on the 22nd June in London.
