Portland, OR – Oct. 27, 2022 – Eclypsium® today announced that it has been named a winner in the annual Black Unicorn Awards for 2022 in the sub-category of Baby Black Unicorns, denoting 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 many promising cybersecurity technology startups for this prestigious award, which showcases companies with incredible potential in the cybersecurity marketplace so it is a great honor to have been named a winner,” said Yuriy Bulygin, CEO and Co-founder of Eclypsium. “As global supply chains become increasingly interdependent and complex, threat actors are also increasingly setting their sights on the hardware and software systems that run them. It’s vital, therefore, that we educate organizations about the risks they face, the importance of a security strategy rooted in zero trust, and arm them with the tools to defend their device fleets and supply chains.”
