We are thrilled to have been selected as a finalist in the SC Media Awards for Best Web Application Solution in the Trust Awards Category. As many of you are aware, the SC Awards are viewed by the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity and we’re in great company with the likes of Imperva, Akamai, WhiteHat Security, and Contrast Security.

This recognition is a reflection of how we are transforming the approach to securing web applications as the industry undergoes a rapid shift to cloud-based solutions. First generation WAF solutions rely on rule, signature, and anomaly detection and are missing the most critical, high-impact attacks because they lack contextual information on the attacker. As a result, security teams are armed with limited intelligence from their current tools to address an increasing volume of sophisticated attacks. ThreatX, however, provides a behavior-based application security approach that unlike other WAF’s, provides complete visibility, reduces false positives, and prevents legitimate traffic from being blocked.

“Being named a finalist by SC Media is tremendous validation for ThreatX and further cements that we are successfully changing the face of WAF security,” said Bret Settle, CEO ThreatX. “Our behavior-based, next-gen WAF, is helping our customers to make a seismic shift in how they deploy and manage their web application security.”

Our SaaS-based WAF helps organizations minimize the risk associated with web, cloud, and legacy apps, APIs, and microservices within hybrid cloud environments. Using progressive profiling to monitor attacker behavior in real time, ThreatX moves beyond static signatures and arms teams with complete visibility into threats, attack vectors, and application vulnerabilities. These insights enable teams to reduce false positives and prevent legitimate traffic from being blocked. At ThreatX, we take an innovative approach to web application security, which not only offers a unique set of features and capabilities that are unavailable from other WAF providers but also comes with a variety of benefits:

  • Attacker-focused, behavior-based threat and application profiling and risk-based mitigation minimizes false positives and catches the known AND unknown attack vectors.
  • Continuous, real-time corroboration, correlation, and analysis of all suspicious events result in the rapid recognition of new attack techniques and targeted vulnerabilities without reliance on rules and manual analysis.
  • Machine learning-based threat and application profiling enables rapid auto-tuning, deploys in hours with immediate attack protection, and achieves safe blocking mode in 1-2 days.
  • Continuously maintained, highly-scalable, cloud-native, SaaS platform which requires no upgrades, server re-starts, or source code installs.

Put simply, ThreatX automates the analysis of thousands of security events and gives our customers greater confidence in their web application security. It is this unique approach that is helping us reshape the WAF market and, of course, achieve this recognition from SC Media.

We are looking forward to connecting with everyone at the awards dinner in San Francisco in March!
