    Local start-up Angoka has had a busy summer; selected for three prestigious accelerators, the team is excited for what lies ahead of them for the rest of the year.

    Setting their sights high, the team is securing connected devices, heightening the standard of cybersecurity across industries and creating a new trust standard for IoT communication. 

    Angoka’s participation in the National Cyber Security Centre’s Cyber Accelerator, TechNation and Seraphim Space Camp speaks not only to the need for Angoka’s products, but also to the belief that Angoka will actualise a world-class solution for protecting IoT communication. Angoka is also the first Northern Irish cybersecurity start-up to be accepted into the Cyber Accelerator.

    IoT communication is an integral part to much of the technology that is prevalent today, and key to emerging innovations. Use of Internet of Things, or IoT, devices are skyrocketing, while Industry 4.0, automotive and transport vehicles and aerospace and defence are increasingly dependent on the ability for machines to communicate. As a result, for both security and safety, it is important that these communications are protected and that the integrity of the message itself is safeguarded.

    Angoka has created security solutions that address this need, authenticating the devices sending and receiving messages and ensuring the accuracy of the message itself. This solution is applicable to a number of use cases across industries and can be used to instantly enhance an organisation’s cybersecurity posture.

    Proud of having recruited a stellar team with different skills and backgrounds, Angoka is excited to expand and to further increase the diversity of the organisation by recruiting exceptional talent.

    Angoka already has offices in London and The Hague, Netherlands, and is planning to open offices in Munich, Tokyo and Singapore in 2021.

    This is a very exciting time of growth for Angoka. As a Belfast-headquartered company, Angoka is pleased to represent the flourishing cybersecurity hub in Northern Ireland, surrounded by world-class facilities such as the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) and the Centre of Excellence for Hardware security at Queen’s University Belfast.
