Muscat: The Sas Accelerator for Cybersecurity’s first cohort concluded on Monday with a virtual demo day. The event was organised by the Ministry of Technology and Communications through its Sas Center for Entrepreneurship and in partnership with the UK-Oman Digital Hub, CyLon and the Oman Technology Fund.

The programme was the first cybersecurity early-stage accelerator in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region and attracted 55 applicants with their Cybersecurity product ideas.

Since February, the qualified teams have participated in intensive workshops and mentoring sessions, both in Oman and virtually with UK’s CyLon, to help them refine their product and business mode.

The demo day event showcased the progress of these eight teams who worked tirelessly on product ideas ranging from Cybersecurity gamification to a real-time security testing developer tool.



The eight ideas of first cohort are ‫: Cyber Warrior — a game to raise cybersecurity awareness, Dark Sniper — a machine learning behaviour detection product, Cryptic Chains — a tool that uses blockchain technology to strengthen the security in Data Management Record Systems, U Safe — a software that simplifies the assessment of security breaches in companies' networks by using visualisation and attack graphs, Octopus — a risk management system using built-in customisable per-vendor templates, Hidden Power — a tool that uses blockchain to not only track shipping more efficiently but also add an additional layer of security, Data Boat — a locally produced SIEM solution and NytOwl — a real-time security testing developer tool
