TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#cervelloCervello, a leader in rail cybersecurity, proudly announces it has been recognized by this year’s Black Unicorn Award which lists cybersecurity companies with the potential to reach $1B valuation. The announcement was made at the 2022 Cyber Defense Conference.

Cervello’s strategic growth is evident through its many partnerships, contracts, and patents, including two industry firsts: being granted the first-ever US patent covering Artificial Intelligence (AI) based cybersecurity for rail organizations , and becoming the first known company to provide a full-scale, cross-country cybersecurity protection plan for the entire railway command and controls network of a national railway line, Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). The company also recently announced a strategic partnership with global technology, defense, and engineering group, ST Engineering, to provide rail organizations with state-of-the-art cybersecurity and services for rail operational networks and infrastructure. The two companies are already working together to secure the operations of one of the busiest rail networks in APAC.

This is a pivotal time for rail cybersecurity as governments and companies shift their focus from fast innovation to increased security. The United States’ Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently updated its security directives for passenger and freight railroad carriers to accommodate today’s growing cybersecurity threats, less than a year since releasing its first list of requirements. Cervello is at the front of various committees around the world pushing for more effective policy regulations that will better secure rail operations while prioritizing business continuity.

“We are honored and proud to accept the 2022 Black Unicorn Award and to be recognized among leading companies in the cybersecurity space,” said Roie Onn, Co-Founder and CEO of Cervello. “It has been an exciting and very busy year for the company and we look forward to what the future holds for the industry and for us.”
