Cybereason Named a Forbes ‘2019 Next Billion-Dollar Startup’

Oct 28, 2019

Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, today announced it was named a Forbes 2019 Next Billion-Dollar Startup. For the past five years, Forbes has searched for 25 fast-growing, venture-backed companies. This year, Cybereason was named a recipient of this prestigious award from an original list of 150 companies.

2019 has been a record-setting year for Cybereason and it is among the fastest-growing cybersecurity companies in the world. With more than 500 customers, the company has more than six million endpoints under protection. Cybereason’s cloud-based, revolutionary EPP platform delivers superior security results while achieving an industry-leading ratio of 1 analyst to 150,000 endpoints as compared to the industry benchmark of 1 analyst to 20,000 endpoints.

Earlier this year, the Cybereason raised $200 million in new capital from SoftBank Group Corp. to disrupt the Endpoint Protection Platform market.

In September, Cybereason launched Game Changers, a new tier for its most strategic partners. On October 8, Cybereason announced a partnership with World Wide Technology, a market-leading, $11 billion technology solution provider. The company also recently announced partnerships with Evry and Securelink. Cybereason will announce additional partnerships in the weeks ahead with value added resellers, system integrators and MSSPs.

In June 2019, Cybereason announced Operation Soft Cell an investigation into a massive, espionage campaign targeting nearly a dozen global telecommunications providers. Cybereason’s nearly year-long investigation discovered commercial, privately owned critical infrastructure companies are tools being used in state-sponsored espionage and cyberwar.
