Cyber 2 Automotive Security (C2a), an OurCrowd Labs/02 portfolio company, whose patented Stamper technology protects connected cars from cyber threats, was named a finalist at the 2018 Mondial.Tech Paris Start-up awards.

The company has been recognised for its new approach to automotive cyber protection, and its comprehensive solutions suite protecting passenger’s lives.

Other finalists in the security, automation & cybersecurity categories include: Enigmatos (Israel), Carfit (USA), Toucango (France), GuardKnox (Israel), Casky (Morocco), SmartTrans (France) and WeProov Group (France).

C2a CEO Michael Dick says, “We are honoured to have been chosen as a start-up finalist at the world’s most renowned auto show and from amongst 10,000 of the most cutting-edge mobility startups. This recognition is an additional indication that our unique technology is what the market needs.”

“We are receiving similar indications from a quickly growing community of OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and tier one companies seeking our services. This is why we recently offered our Stamper technology to auto manufacturers and suppliers worldwide through a royalty-free license.”

The Mondial.Tech Start-up Awards are said by the organisers to be the largest award competition of their kind focused on the automotive industry. This is the first time the event has been held at the Paris Motor Show, where a committee of judges, including Ben Kaminski of Target Global and Pierre Gachont of Renault select the best of the world’s start-ups dedicated to mobility and invite them to exhibit and pitch at the most renowned auto show in the world.
