ANGOKA was founded in 2019 by four serial entrepreneurs, with the mission to protect the future of Smart Mobility and Smart Cities. Originally spun out of an R&D project conducted by CyNation involving cryptographic protocols for connected and autonomous vehicles, ANGOKA is a flourishing company with very exciting prospects.
In the two years since founding, our team has grown exponentially, and is continuing to grow. Additionally, we have expanded internationally, with our headquarters in Belfast, and offices in London and The Hague.
We have participated in several prestigious programmes, including NCSC’s Cyber Accelerator (making us the first NI start-up to be selected), Seraphim Space Camp, Yes!Delft and TechNation Cyber 2.0. Most recently, we were selected for Zenzic’s Connected and Autonomous Mobility Scale-Up Programme, delivered in partnership with Plug and Play.
Staying true to our R&D roots, we have also been awarded funding several Innovate UK-funded ventures, including projects securing quantum communications (led by BT) and two drone projects.
ANGOKA is also committed to making the world a safer, more sustainable and more resilient place through our innovations. We directly contribute to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals listed below by improving security and safety standards across industries around the world.
Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation (Industry, innovation and infrastructure)
- ANGOKA is actively working to increase the resilience of systems necessary for Industry 4.0 and Critical National Infrastructure. We also regularly participate in research and development activities, furthering and encouraging innovation.
Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable (Sustainable cities and communities)
- ANGOKA’s solutions are for Smart Cities and Smart Mobility, heightening the cybersecurity and safety of devices, vehicles and networks. The future viability of Smart Cities and Mobility is in fact dependent on the cybersecurity measures that will be implemented to protect citizens and infrastructure against potentially dangerous cyberattacks. As our technology is directly applicable across Smart Cities, our solution in essence enables the sustainability goals that are associated with Smart technology, such as decreased carbon output and improved transport.
Our mission remains to secure machine-to-machine communications, protecting against the negative effects of the boom of IoT and Smart devices. ANGOKA’s solutions will be key to safeguarding critical communication integrity and data provenance, creating trusted connections, even in untrustworthy networks.
