JewishPress Logo

Israel’s largest early-stage cyber-security investor, Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP), announced in San Francisco on Tuesday that a Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) startup won the first “Cybertition” competition.

Thirty-five cyber-security companies competed. The winning company, Titanium Core, works to repel cyber attacks on mission-critical systems and prevent attacks in real time. It will receive a $1 million investment and working space in JVP’s laboratory in Beer Sheva, Israel.

“Our patented technology can provide an unbreakable security layer around core, mission-critical systems… This funding, along with the guidance of the Cyber Labs incubator, will allow us to bring our vision to market and ensure that this technology can be used to protect the world’s critical IT assets,” said Dudu Mimram, co-founder and chief technology officer for Titanium Core.

The company was founded by Mimram, Director of Telkom Innovation Laboratories at BGU Prof. Yuval Elovici, and Ph.D. student Mordechai Guri.

“Titanium brings together elite minds from academia and business, fusing together incredible innovation with the ability to solve a critical pain point,” said Dr. Nimrod Kozlovski, partner at the JVP Cyber Labs. “The quality and innovative nature of the startups in our Cybertition attests to Israel’s growing role as the global hub for cyber-security innovation.”
