About Ampliphae

Specialists in cloud discovery, artificial intelligence (AI) and network architecture, Ampliphae has applied machine learning and deep analytics to the task of cloud application discovery and management.

The result is a cloud-control system that's more intelligent, more flexible, and far easier to deploy and use than standard cloud access control brokers.

An introduction from our CEO

Trevor Graham (Chief Executive Officer)

As co-founder and CEO of Ampliphae, Trevor heads a hand-picked team that is developing a leading-edge cloud application management tool designed for SME businesses.

He understands the pressures that CIO's or IT Directors face working with rapid advances in cloud-based technology and bringing compliant commercial solutions to market on time.

Five years ago he predicted the need for a better way to manage SaaS applications on networks and discover cloud-based applications used broadly in many organisations where compliance is more important than ever.

Meeting these needs is the heart and foundation of the Ampliphae solution.

As COO of Ampliphae, Ian leads the talented team that has developed the Ampliphae cloud application management solution designed to help large organisations discover, assess and govern the use of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications employed by their people to mitigate exposure to compliance, cost control, sensitive data leakage and other cyber security risks.

Ian is responsible for customer success and leading the teams engaged in the ongoing research and development of the Ampliphae product.

Michael Taylor (Business Development Director)

As a senior executive at Ampliphae, Michael is working with Senior Executives and CIO's and CISO's to reduce the risks of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications bought online with credit cards linked to research or departmental budgets (Shadow IT) outside the control of IT but within the data and risk governance of the organisation or business.

Many Heads of Governance and CIO's have been surprised at the variety of applications that are being used by their users without their knowledge and are unaware of where the data is being stored globally and the data loss or phishing risks.

What many years ago wasn't an issue is now an area where individuals can acquire access to applications in minutes, adoption of larger communities of users can take a day or so. Agreeing and publishing policies is no longer the answer, the solution is acquiring a 360 degree radar to identify, manage and advise users 24/7. Cutting off access to the application is not the answer, as in some cases these applications now run offices, departments or businesses!

Nigel Oakley (Business Development Director)

As a senior executive at Ampliphae, Nigel is helping IT Directors at medium and large enterprises, to reduce the risks they face as their organisations embrace cloud computing.

With the insight and wisdom gained over 40 years in the IT, Networking, Infrastructure and Cloud industry, Nigel is ideally placed to make a difference to client businesses.

Many IT Directors he has worked with are surprised to discover just how dispersed their applications and data have become. This lack of visibility has resulted in a critical loss of control of the applications that run the business by the IT organisation. Managing the cloud ecosystem starts with a discovery process to identify the extent of the "apps" inventory. Only then can the IT organisation make policy decisions about which applications are approved and ensure appropriate compliance.

Ampliphae has received support from Invest NI under the European Union's Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme. The project(s), recorded on the ERDF beneficiaries' website, will be implemented over the next 3 years, undertaking research and development activities aimed at improving the competitiveness of the business.

Ampliphae is a member of The Northern Ireland Cyber Security Cluster which promotes international business, innovation and collaboration opportunities. The cluster consists of companies developing world-leading cybersecurity technologies from Northern Ireland, across a diverse range of sectors including finance, banking, insurance, legal, telecoms, threat intelligence, defence, security and healthcare.
