ETHIACK is the only Portuguese startup selected to be part of the group of 17 companies that will participate in the @Google for Startups Growth Academy: AI for Cybersecurity program.

The UPTEC startup was selected for offering an AI-based platform to carry out continuous offensive security tests, allowing it to identify real-time vulnerabilities with 99% accuracy and recommend the necessary measures to correct them. This program lasts three months and is aimed at the most promising startups that use Artificial Intelligence technology to grow and innovate responsibly in cybersecurity.

The program also aims to give startups the necessary knowledge to scale their business through internationalization strategies using Google’s tools and products. The selected founders will work with Google experts and external consultants in a series of strategy, sales and partnerships workshops.

Jorge Monteiro, CEO of ETHIACK, said: “This is an incredible opportunity for our company to accelerate growth and increase the impact of our cybersecurity solution. It’s amazing to be recognized for the quality of our work and for pioneering the use of AI to help businesses, organizations, and people stay safe.”

After the three-month program, startups will continue to receive product support and guidance from Google to help them meet the challenges of the global marketplace. The program does not involve financing or participation in the companies’ capital.
