Cynash Inc., a leading developer of cybersecurity solutions for critical energy, water, transportation and industrial control systems, has announced the opening of a new office in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and the formation of an international subsidiary.
Cynash International Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cynash Inc. Instrumental to this expansion was Invest Northern Ireland, a business development agency that attracts new investment to Northern Ireland while helping businesses compete internationally. The office opened on March 14th.
“We were attracted to Belfast because of the strong, diverse talent pool—owing in part to the close proximity to Queens University of Belfast’s Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT),” says Cynash CEO Richard Robinson. “This caliber of talent will be indispensable to the further development of our cybersecurity technologies.”
Cynash’s initial technology offering is SerialTap™. Based on technology developed by the United States Department of Energy, this patented sensing device passively intercepts serial communications on legacy industrial control networks. It then transmits the intercepted data to a backend appliance and higher-level computing systems for further analysis by Cynash’s suite of industrial cybersecurity tools.
Welcoming the company to Northern Ireland, Alan Wilson, Head of International Investment, Invest Northern Ireland says, “We are delighted that Cynash has chosen to establish a small technology base in Northern Ireland, creating 5 high-quality jobs. The company’s focus on developing critical infrastructure cybersecurity solutions using patented technologies will give employees new skills and will enhance Northern Ireland’s growing ICT sector.”
Cynash delivers nature-inspired cybersecurity technologies to protect critical energy, transportation, wastewater and industrial control infrastructure. Our patented cybersecurity technologies build upon decades of applied research in machine learning, data analytics, high-performance computing and scalable infrastructure protection.
