Confluera, the provider of next-generation cloud detection and response, has been named a winner in the "Top 10 Cybersecurity Startups" category of this year's 2021 Black Unicorn Awards, by Cyber Defense Magazine. This awards program takes place each year during the Black Hat USA conference, honoring cybersecurity innovators from around the world.

"We're pleased to name Confluera as a Winner for the Top 10 Cybersecurity Startups for 2021 among a small, elite group of startups in our third annual Black Unicorn awards," said Judges of Cyber Defense Magazine. 

This award win comes on the heels of the launch of Confluera's Cloud eXtended Detection and Response (CxDR) solution, designed to protect cloud-native environments from modern cybersecurity threats. Confluera CxDR brings together the best security capabilities from the otherwise silo-ed category of solutions; threat detection, threat analytics, and cloud security. This new CxDR solution reduces the industry average time to detect and mitigate advanced attacks from months down to hours while also reducing the need for personnel with highly specialized cybersecurity expertise.

John Morgan, CEO, Confluera: "We are thrilled to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine as one of the Top 10 Cybersecurity Startups of 2021. Cloud security continues to be a top concern among organizations as each passing week brings word of a new breach or attack on a cloud environment. That is why at Confluera, we are committed to continuing our development of innovative cloud threat detection and response solutions, built on cloud-native architectures, that can help organizations realize the business benefits of the cloud with lower cyber risk."
