The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – a part of GCHQ – and Plexal have announced the first companies to join the NCSC For Start-ups initiative.

Five cybersecurity innovators have been chosen to work with the UK’s technical experts to address some of the most prevalent threats facing the nation. The companies are PORGiESOFT, Exalens, Enclave, Meterian and Rebellion Defence.

Chris Ensor, NCSC Deputy Director for cybergrowth, said: “The UK has a thriving cybersecurity industry and I’m excited to get to work with our first five companies and bring their innovations to life.”

The programme welcomes start-ups at all stages of maturity; from those developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), to those with established cybersecurity solutions looking to expand into new markets and pilot technology. NCSC For Start-ups is the successor to the NCSC Cyber Accelerator, a programme that helped more than 40 tech companies raise over £100 million in external investment.
