A technology company founded by two ECE faculty earned the award for Startup of the Year by Tech Launch Arizona at the I-Squared Awards. ECE professor emeritus Roman Lysecky and ECE distinguished professor Jerzy Rozenblit co-founded the startup BG Networks to protect everything from autonomous vehicles to the power grid.
BG Networks was founded to commercialize cybersecurity inventions from the College of Engineering. This past year, the startup achieved a great milestone, releasing its second product, AnCyRTM (Anomaly Detection and Cyber Resilience), a host-based software anomaly detection technology based on UA.
“I was absolutely thrilled and honored to hear this unexpected and exciting news,” said Rozenblit. “This recognition further reinforces our commitment to transferring university-based research into the marketplace. TLA’s support has been indispensable in getting us off the ground.”
Lysecky was likewise excited about the honor, saying, “BG Networks is deeply honored to be recognized as TLA’s Startup of the Year. I’m delighted by the quick progress we have made in developing our research outcomes into a commercial product, which would not be possible without TLA’s support.”
