A new high-tech data security business has relocated from Alabama to downtown Shreveport.

According to a news release, CyberReef Solutions "simplifies and accelerates customers' ability to deploy secure cellular Internet of Things (IoT) communications over one of the largest wireless networks in the U.S."

The business, formerly SCADA Access, has moved into One Texas Centre at 415 Texas Street, and becomes the first business to be awarded a Do Business Downtown grant by the Downtown Shreveport Development Corporation, with support from the NW Louisiana Community Foundation.

"We are pleased to welcome CyberReef Solutions downtown," said DSDC Executive Director Liz Swaine. "One benefit to locating in downtown Shreveport is the proximity to Venyu Solutions' new facility being built out in the 500 block of Milam Street. We believe that Venyu Solutions will be a magnet for a number of high technology businesses that need access to cloud hosting, online data backup, virtualized disaster recovery and co-location."

CyberReef founder Hilton Nicholson says the company's plan is to build a center for Cellular Networks Cyber Security in Shreveport. Over the next two to three years, the business will be hiring between 25 and 30 engineers and technicians for new product development and customer support.

Swaine tells KEEL News the hope is that the business will continue to grow, and provide even more jobs for Shreveport-Bossier residents.
