Mobile cybersecurity startup KoolSpan graduates from Cync program

Another startup has joined the growing population of cybersecurity providers in Maryland.

KoolSpan recently graduated from bwtech@UMBC, as a member of the incubator’s Cync program.

The 18-month scholarship program is a partnership between bttech@UMBC and Northrop Grumman Corp. Other graduates have included AccelerEyes (now called ArrayFire), Five Directions and Oculis Labs.

KoolSpan’s focus is on mobile communications security. The Bethesda-based company grew from eight to 40 employees during it’s time in Cync, and grew a portfolio of more than 20 patents.

One of its projects during the 18-month program was refining its TrustChip technology — a microchip that slides into phones and tablets to protect data and voice communications.
