Company‘s Unified Web Application Defense Platform Takes Best-in-Show for Best Cybersecurity Start-Up, Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company, and Top Web Application Security
RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cymatic today announced that has been recognized as the gold award winner for the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in three top categories: best start-up, most innovative company, and best web application security. Such prestigious recognition is a testament to the company’s next-generation all-in-one web application defense platform.
The Cymatic platform moves protection from the network side to the client to defend against today’s most sophisticated client-and browser-based attacks. It provides universal in-session visibility and control to reduce risk across web applications, networks, and users while decreasing network traffic loads and eliminating user friction.
“We are proud to be recognized for our revolutionary work in web application defense,” said Cymatic Founder and Chief Executive Jason Hollander. “Our early success in leading secure web application protection underscores the need for solutions that provide unified visibility and real-time remediation without causing user friction or prolonged deployment times, which are fundamental shifts from traditional approaches to security.”
Instead of just protecting network-based threats like traditional WAFs, Cymatic uses sophisticated artificial intelligence and machine-learning algorithms to identify page mutations and user anomalies. The platform protects against user-derived and device-based threats such as poor credential hygiene, dark web vulnerabilities, and potentially risky devices. It is invisible and frictionless to users, deploys in mere minutes, and has immediate time-to-value.
“Congratulations to Cymatic for being recognized as the gold award winner in three highly competitive categories of the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 400,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn that jointly produce the awards program. “With over 500 entries in more than 90 award categories, the 2020 awards reflect the very best in today’s cybersecurity industry.”
Cymatic was selected from organizations around the world that vied for top honors. Its advanced microservices and real-time message-bus architecture offer unparalleled scale to provide the resilience necessary to validate and process the millions of users and transactions that touch web properties every second. The platform is engineered to work across all web applications regardless of operating system, browser, or device. It eliminates the OWASP top 10, bots, CAPTCHAs, dark web threats, forced MFA, shared accounts, IP threats, device vulnerabilities, and other cloud-based threats with no erosion of the user experience.
