Code42 competed over a five-month period against many of the industry’s leading providers of cybersecurity products and services for this prestigious award. The term “Black Unicorn” signifies a cybersecurity company that has the potential to reach a $1 billion market value as determined by private or public investment.
“It takes an innovative cybersecurity solution to be named a Black Unicorn Awards winner,” said Joe Payne, Code42’s president and CEO. “Code42 is honored to be recognized for our new approach in solving one of the biggest insider threats to data loss — departing employees. Code42’s solution tells companies what data is leaving and when — so organizations aren’t finding out employees left with confidential information months after the damage is done.”
Using Code42® Next-Gen Data Loss Protection, organizations can detect risky file activity across computers and the cloud as well as quickly investigate unusual file behavior and respond to data loss, leak and theft. At any point in time, Code42’s solution can tell organizations where their data lives, when and what data leaves, and who has, or ever had, access to it.
“We judges felt that Code42 deserved to be named a Black Unicorn Awards winner for 2019 because they have the team, technology, drive and hypergrowth curve to potentially become a cybersecurity unicorn,” said judges Robert Herjavec of www.herjavecgroup.com, David DeWalt of www.nightdragon.com and Gary Miliefsky of www.cyberdefensemediagroup.com.
The Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection solution was recently honored with a number of other industry awards, including a Stevie Award, two Cyber Defense Magazine 2019 InfoSec Awards, a 2019 Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Award and 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.
