    Here at RazorSecure, we are specialists in providing Rail Cyber Security Solutions. We are at the cutting edge of cybersecurity development, offering a flexible, hybrid network and host-based approach to rail cybersecurity. Our technology is powered by machine learning and designed to protect rolling stock, signalling and infrastructure systems.

    The quality of our technology speaks for itself. That’s why we’re backed by global investors including Breed Reply, and NBI.

    Our talented, friendly and international team of over 20 professionals, technology experts and engineers are the reason for this. We all collaborate and challenge each other to be better, working towards the same goal.

    Founded in 2015 by CEO Alex Cowan, RazorSecure provides intrusion detection cybersecurity software sold as a software as service (SaaS) products to the rail industry. Our products have been developed from extensive experience within the gaming industry, working for companies under constant attack from determined attackers who think differently to gain an advantage over other gamers and systems. We have threaded this approach throughout our company culture, we work hard, we play hard and we look to create innovation by harnessing these skills.

    RazorSecure is headquartered in Basingstoke UK, but has international sales opportunities within the EU and US, with more international development planned in the short term.
