LAS VEGAS, Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BLACK HAT USA - Remediant, a leading provider of Privileged Access Management (PAM) software, today announced at Black Hat USA 2019 that it has been named a Winner in the Black Unicorn Awards for 2019. Granted by Cyber Defense Magazine through a highly competitive process, this award showcases top companies with incredible potential in the cybersecurity marketplace.

“With a whole new approach to Privileged Access Management (PAM), Remediant is rewriting the future of identity management," said Gary Miliefsky, Executive Producer of Cyber Defense Magazine. “It's no surprise to see the company’s rapid growth and market leadership at this early stage. We’re excited to see where this company goes from here.” 

Remediant is now one of 10 Winners, having competed against many of the industry’s leading cybersecurity products and service providers. The term “Black Unicorn” applies to a cybersecurity company that has the potential to reach a $1 billion dollar market value, as determined by private or public investment.

“We’re excited to accept this prestigious award, as it recognizes Remediant’s capability to help enterprises get Privileged Access under control,” said Paul Lanzi, Remediant Co-Founder and COO. “Every enterprise needs and deserves a great solution to their Privileged Access Management problems: legacy password vault solutions haven’t, and can’t, meet that need.”

“We judges felt that Remediant deserved to be named a Black Unicorn Awards winner for 2019 because they have the team, technology, drive and hyper-growth curve to potentially become a cybersecurity unicorn,” said Judges Robert Herjavec of Herjavec Group, David DeWalt of NightDragon and Gary Miliefsky of Cyber Defense Magazine

Remediant has consistently demonstrated rapid growth and revenue increases since the company’s inception in 2015. Remediant’s SecureONE software has been adopted by Fortune 1000 enterprises across a number of industries, including media, defense, biotech and financial institutions. Gartner also recently recognized Remediant as a 2019 Cool Vendor in Identity and Access Management.
