Maryland cybersecurity startup focused on creating secure systems for business’ sensitive data

COLUMBIA, Md. (March 28, 2023) – Tina Williams-Koroma, founder and CEO of CyDeployTEDCO, Maryland’s economic engine for technology companies, announced a recent Pre-Seed Builder Fund investment of $150,000 into CyDeploy, a woman- and minority-led startup working to provide businesses with security solutions to improve the overall functionality of their systems. TEDCO’s Builder Fund invests in and provides executive support to Maryland-based technology companies run by entrepreneurs who demonstrate economic disadvantage. 

“Technology requires continual maintenance and updates, but sometimes there are unforeseen consequences of these updates. That’s why we created a process to help mitigate any costly delays or problems that could occur,” stated Tina Williams-Koroma, founder and CEO of CyDeploy. “We are thankful for TEDCO’s support, helping us to help our clients remain informed about the possible issues that could occur, allowing them to make informed decisions and create strategies to combat any potential delays or breakdowns.”

CyDeploy LogoCyDeploy, based in Baltimore, Md., created an intelligent automated functional testing solution. By creating a digital twin of the system, CyDeploy allows users to test how planned security updates will impact a system’s functionality. Through this process, businesses can make changes with confidence, knowing that any updates to their systems will not break the functionality of any part of the system. This assurance allows businesses and business owners to rest assured, knowing that they won’t need to suffer through the costly downtime that occurs when functionality breaks.

“CyDeploy created a solution to a frequent, costly problem,” said TEDCO’s Jean-Luc Park, senior director of Social Impact Funds. “By taking extra measures, businesses can ensure up-time and robust security are decisions actively made by the business. We are excited to be a part of CyDeploy’s growth and can’t wait to see where the business goes from here.”
