Press Release: RFS makes an equity investment in Blockchain Solutions Company, ByzGen

Regulatory Finance Solutions limited has made an equity investment in ByzGen, the creator of bespoke private, blockchain solutions. The investment will enable ByzGen to accelerate its expansion, attracting market leading technical expertise.

ByzGen Ltd was spun out by the listed Cyber Security experts, Crossword CyberSecurity PLC, and is run by CEO Marcus Ralphs who brings first-hand experience of the Defence and Security sector. He is joined by CTO Terry Leonard, who was previously the head of development and delivery at Experian, and Delivery Director Dean Bellman, a former RAF pilot and KPMG programme lead.

Leveraging Skipchain technology, enhanced with cutting edge permission controls and security protocols, ByzGen designs, configures and deploys decentralised blockchain systems to enable organisations to protect their digital and hard assets through improved data reliability and assured transaction provenance.

We believe the applications for this technology will be varied and certainly include financial services organisations who have significant risks to the sensitive information they keep.  We are very much looking forward to working with the fantastic and experienced team at ByzGen to further solidify its unique position in the market.”
