About usA modern threat intelligence company for a modern business world. Learn more about our company below.

Cyjax helps companies build effective threat intelligence solutions to tackle the ever-growing number of digital threats that organisations and people face today.


Cyjax was formed in 2012. Working closely with the financial sector, we developed technologies and methodologies to help stem the advance of digital threats impacting banks and consumers around the world. We quickly established ourselves as a leading provider of cyber threat intelligence capabilities across all industry verticals, a journey we continue today. Cyjax is built on its own growth and remains wholly owned by its founding members in the UK.

The journey begins

The journey began in a Word document, delivering weekly reports and summaries to a select list of individuals at companies such as EDF Energy and BT.

The first platform was built

In early 2013 we built our first threat intelligence platform. It was assessed as cutting-edge, and was immediately adopted by every member of the CSIG banking group.

Maturing our approach

In 2014 we hired our first seasoned tech-space CEO to help develop a business strategy that would enable us to mature and compete with competitors in this space.

Expected growth arrived

2015 saw a growth in the number of organisations subscribing to our service. Outside of government, every customer was a Fortune 500 member.

The second generation

In 2016 we consolidated the growth of our previous years with the addition of a number of senior management staff recruited from Fortune 500 companies.

Awards and accolades

2017 was a year of industry recognition. We won multiple awards for excellence in threat intelligence, and Cyjax was recognised as a leading provider in this industry.

Technological innovation and business evolution

In 2018 we released a new digital intelligence technology platform, demonstrating cutting edge technology. A new CEO was in position and business development accelerated.

Here we are today

A extremely successful year for Cyjax - doubling our customer base, tripling our headcount and working on some of the world’s most exciting innovation and modernisation projects in our space.
