imgresAngel Academe is really excited to be working with Fabric founder, CEO and cyber-security expert Kerri-Lynn Hauck to help her grow her business and take advantage of the huge market opportunity ahead.

Fabric’s mission is to make secure communication easy and reliable for all of us. While organisations spend millions of pounds securing their corporate IT networks, their employees risk losing the valuable corporate data those networks carry through their mobile phones. Fabric’s leading edge encryption protocols deliver a communication platform with an exceptional combination of security, call quality and ease of use.

The Angel Academe syndicate was led by Olga Shafranik and John McNicholas. John says, “Given the recent security breaches at TalkTalk, Sony and JD Weatherspoon (to name but a few), addressing cyber risks is now essential for every business as well as consumers. Although it’s a competitive market, Fabric have an energetic and experienced team with a quality product and the potential to become a serious player.”

Bob Schukai, Head of Advanced Innovation at Thomson Reuters, assisted the syndicate with technical due diligence and competitor analysis. He said, “Fabric has tapped into the growing concern that our messaging and mobile communications can be intercepted because of substandard architecture and technology implementation. Fabric has a very smart team and visionary leader who have built a secure solution for the cloud that I can see enterprises adopting as a secure, verifiable, communications platform which works across mobile and WiFi networks.“

Sarah Turner, Founder of Angel Academe and also part of the Fabric syndicate, said, “Fabric ticks all the boxes for me and is exactly what Angel Academe is about: supporting dynamic women founders to develop truly scalable solutions for important global problems. Dealing with the threat of cyber attacks is right up there!”

Fabric are currently based at Cyber London, Europe’s first cyber security accelerator and incubator space.
