About Cylera

Cylera is a VC-backed stealth startup creating a network-level cybersecurity solution to manage and protect connected medical devices, such as infusion pumps and CT machines, by applying machine learning techniques to network traffic. Our problem space is at the intersection of the virtual and physical, where insecure medical equipment serves as the interface between patients and the hospital network, and where a single device compromise could have potentially life-threatening consequences.

Company Culture

Our small team has spent the past year hyper-focused on setting all the dominos in place: securing funding, building the right team, finding enthusiastic customers, and creating a solid technical foundation. While we recognize the massive market opportunity ahead of us, we are more excited by the problem space and the technological progress to be made. The idea that our code will protect life-critical medical devices from cyber attacks keeps us driven, focused, and brings us to work every day. We even have a bottle of champagne set aside for the day we stop our first attack.

Yet, while passion and grit have helped our scrappy team of five reach this point, we believe these traits were just the base requirements. Our individual drives to constantly learn, immerse ourselves in unfamiliar problem spaces and technologies, and balance desires for perfection with forward momentum have been critical. These are individual values we want to ensure we maintain as our small team rapidly grows over the next few months.

If any of this resonates with you at all, let's talk. We'd love for you to be there with us as we pop open that bottle of champagne.
