Crossword has identified over 500 cyber security related research projects across UK and Europe, and has partnered with key researchers to bring their leading edge ideas into the commercial world.  These include The University of Bristol, The University of Warwick, Coventry University, The University of Surrey and City University London.  Using our team of Cyber Security Engineers in London and Krakow, Crossword has bought two commercial products to market to date with more in the pipeline.
