Company Recognized as a Baby Black Unicorn Finalist, an Awards Competition for Cybersecurity Companies with the Potential of Being Valued at $1B

NEW YORK – AUGUST 3, 2021Kasada, the cybersecurity industry’s provider of the most effective and easiest way to defend against advanced persistent bot attacks, today announced that has been named a finalist in the Black Unicorn Awards for 2021, in the subcategory of Baby Black Unicorns.

Kasada competed against many of the industry’s leading providers of cybersecurity products and services for this prestigious award. The term “Baby Black Unicorn” signifies a cybersecurity company that has the potential to reach a $1 billion dollar market valuation within the next 3-5 years (a few years longer than a Black Unicorn), as determined by private or public investment. These awards showcase companies in the cybersecurity marketplace with this kind of incredible potential.

“We’re pleased to name Kasada as a finalist among a small, elite group of cybersecurity industry leaders in our third annual Black Unicorn awards,” said Judges Robert R. Ackerman Jr. of www.allegiscyber.com, David DeWalt of www.nightdragon.com, Dr. Peter Stephenson of Cyber Defense Labs and Gary Miliefsky of www.cyberdefensemediagroup.com.  

“This recognition from Cyber Defense Media Group is a testament to the hard work, dedication and revenue growth associated with our team delivering an industry-changing approach to the problem of bot attacks. Traditional bot detection approaches are outdated in their architecture and do not solve the problem optimally,” said Sam Crowther, founder and CEO of Kasada. “By combining a zero trust approach with resiliency to prevent attackers from retooling, we give companies an easy and effective way to solve their current and future bot problems.”
