The £500,000 Seed investment from UKI2S comes at a pivotal time for ExactTrak, known for its remarkable achievements, including nineteen granted international patents and a groundbreaking ‘Mission Impossible’ patent, securing the remote physical destruction of memory within a mere three seconds.

With a goal to protect government data and facilitate dual-use applications in the commercial sector.

Commenting on the investment, Mark White, Investment Director at UKI2S managed by Future Planet Capital, highlighted the dual-use capabilities of ExactTrak's solutions:

“ExactTrak’s innovative approach to cybersecurity places them at the forefront of the industry.”

“Their solutions, available to anyone in the government and with applications in the commercial sector, particularly in finance and healthcare, demonstrate the cross-sector impact of their technology.”

This investment will fuel the expansion of ExactTrak’s highly secure government-assured solution, driving the company into new markets, with a focus on sales growth and solidifying their position in the defence and security sectors.
