The work around innovation and in creating impact for research has been recognised with three of the spin-outs from Cyber Security team in the School of Computing being shortlisted in the National Cyber Security Awards (to be held in Edinburgh on 16 Nov 2016).

This includes the Best Cyber Start Up (Symphonic Software and Cyan Forensics), and SME Defender of the Year (Zonefox). 

Zonefox has been advancing the scope of their innovative product, and Scottish Financial Enterprise (SFE), too, have also shortlisted them for the annual SFE award, and which recognises companies and individuals for ‘excellence in the financial services in Scotland’.

Symphonic Software has also made massive strides with data sharing, and are applying their novel trust and governance software into data sharing partnerships in London, including a programme which is integrating over 7,000 health and social care entities across the city.

Cyan Forensics is one of the newest spin-outs, and is built on internationally leading research in the identification, classification and analysis of digital fragments. The work has evolved through collaborative work with a range of law enforcement agencies, including Police Scotland.

All three spin-out have developed through leading edge research, and are backed-up with patented technology.
