Baby Black Unicorns 2021

Leading enterprise firmware security company recognized as Baby Black Unicorn, having potential of being valued at $1b in near future

Portland, OR – Aug. 2, 2021Eclypsium®, the enterprise firmware security company, today announced that it has been named a finalist in the third annual Black Unicorn Awards for 2021 in the sub-category of Baby Black Unicorns for 2021, signifying a cybersecurity company that has the potential to reach a $1 billion dollar market value within three to five years as determined by private or public investment.

“Eclypsium competed against some of the industry’s leading providers of cybersecurity products and services, so it is a tremendous honor to be recognized as a leading provider of firmware security solutions — not only for the work that we are doing today to secure organizations’ most valuable assets but for the potential growth we are poised to achieve,” said Yuriy Bulygin, CEO and Co-Founder of Eclypsium.

Eclypsium’s comprehensive, cloud-based platform identifies, verifies, and fortifies firmware in laptops, servers, network appliances, and IOT devices, securing against firmware attacks, providing discovery, continuous device risk and integrity assessment, delivering firmware patching at scale, and preventing ransomware and persistent implants. 

“Enterprise devices — whether servers or endpoints or network appliances — face unprecedented risk, yet security at the firmware level is a mess to manage. Unfortunately, existing vulnerability management and threat detection tools are blind to firmware, and organizations just don’t have the time and technical resources to manually close the gap. Our platform makes a hard problem simple,” added Bulygin.

Eclypsium’s firmware security platform provides enterprises with a fast, device-centric way to accomplish asset discovery and inventory at the component and firmware level, assess the vulnerability and risk of devices that serve as toeholds for ransomware and advanced exploits and achieve real-time threat detection in the firmware beneath the operating system (OS). Unlike traditional vulnerability scanners, endpoint security suites, and patching tools that focus on application-level issues, Eclypsium’s deep expertise — encompassing chips, hardware, and firmware — delivers a modern, comprehensive approach to firmware security that’s consistent across the enterprise and fully automated to harden systems, reduce risks, and lower manpower costs.

This award is another in a series of recent awards and recognitions for the company including TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor, Network Product Guide Award, Gartner Cool Vendor, Fast Company’s World Most Innovative Companies, CB Insights Cyber Defenders, and CNBC Upstart 100.
