Winners of Prestigious Black Unicorn Award Revealed During Black Hat USA 2021
Gurucul, the cybersecurity industry’s leading provider of Next-Gen SIEM, UEBA, XDR, and Identity Analytics technology, today announced that CEO Saryu Nayyar has been named a Winner of the Top 10 Women in Cybersecurity for 2021 at the Black Unicorn Awards for 2021 which take place each year during the Black Hat USA conference.
Gurucul CEO and Co-Founder Saryu Nayyar competed against many of the industry’s leading Women in Cybersecurity for this prestigious award. Ms. Nayyar blazed a new trail for the security industry based on her vision that identity is the new security perimeter and applying data science to behavior patterns is the most reliable way to detect and protect against sophisticated threats like insider attacks and account takeovers.
“This is truly an honor to be recognized alongside my peers as a Top 10 Woman in Cybersecurity for my pioneering work in applying data science to automate real-time threat detection and response, and model-driven security,” said Saryu Nayyar. “In a traditionally male dominated industry, it’s refreshing to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of our female cybersecurity leaders.”
“We’re pleased to name Saryu Nayyar of Gurucul as a Top 10 Women in Cybersecurity for 2021 among a small, elite group of female information security professionals 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.
Saryu Nayyar’s company, Gurucul, pioneered the cybersecurity category that analyst firm Gartner calls User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA). Today, the Gurucul Unified Security and Risk Analytics platform encompasses Next-Gen SIEM, UEBA, SOAR, XDR, Identity Analytics, and Fraud Analytics. Gurucul was recently awarded Best Product in Insider Threat Prevention in the Global InfoSec Awards for 2021, a 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Award Winner for the Gurucul Insider Threat Solution, and Gurucul UEBA won a 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award for Most Advanced Analytics.
