by Remediant, on Aug 3, 2020

BlackUnicornWinnerSAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, AUGUST 3, 2020 – Remediant, the Precision Privileged Access Management (PAM) leader, today announced that it has been named a winner in the Black Unicorn Awards for 2020.Remediant competed 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 dollar market value as determined by private or public investment and these awards showcase those companies with this kind of incredible potential in the cybersecurity marketplace.

“We’re pleased to name Remediant as a winner among a small, elite group of cybersecurity industry leaders in our second annual Black Unicorn awards,” said Judges Robert R. Ackerman Jr. of, David DeWalt of and Gary Miliefsky of

Remediant was selected because of its work in delivering to enterprise and public sector customers the promise of Zero Standing Privilege (ZSP). Simply put, Remediant’s flagship software product, SecureONE, ensures privileged access is precisely allocated and continuously inventoried by granting access on a “Just Enough, Just-in-Time” basis using two-factor authentication.


Remediant SecureONE was purpose-built to address this problem and be a force multiplier to Identity & Access Management programs worldwide. The founding team especially had in mind those looking to secure and enable access to global, distributed and always scaling infrastructure.

We are thrilled to see Remediant be named a Black Unicorn for 2020 because of our management team’s track record, our laser-focus on delivering Just-in-Time Administration (JITA), and the speed and ease of deployment and use of our SecureONE PAM product offering. This is a huge ‘green field’ opportunity for us in a multibillion-dollar addressable marketplace,” said Tim Keeler, Remediant co-founder and CEO. “The Remediant approach eliminates standing privilege with continuous scanning and agentless, vaultless simplicity – unlike bloated, complex legacy PAM solutions that leave unprotected attack surfaces and are difficult to deploy.”
