Company Named in API Threat Protection and Cloud WAAP Categories

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ThreatX, the leading API protection platform, today announced the company has been acknowledged twice as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2022 report. ThreatX was listed within the API Threat Protection and Cloud WAAP categories. You can view a complimentary copy of the Hype Cycle, here.

The 2022 Gartner Hype Cycle describes API Threat Protection as, “the defense of web APIs from exploits, abuse, access violations and denial of service (DoS) attacks,” and asserts that, “traditional network and web protection tools do not protect against all the security threats facing APIs, including many of those described in the OWASP API Security Top 10.”1

As a cloud-native, container-deployed solution, ThreatX identifies vulnerabilities within customer APIs and web applications and blocks attacks in real-time. By leveraging attacker-centric behavioral analytics, ThreatX scans all inbound traffic in real time, connecting all behaviors, activities and perspectives together to deliver customers a complete understanding of risk. ThreatX can detect, block and neutralize Layer 7 attacks, OWASP and OWASP API Top 10 vulnerabilities, bots, DDoS and zero-day threats with high precision.

“We’re proud to be recognized as a Sample Vendor in this year’s Hype Cycle for Application Security,” said Gene Fay, CEO of ThreatX. “We believe our recognition in both the API Threat Protection and Cloud WAAP sections of the report not only showcases the hard work done by our team, but that we are delivering on our promise of comprehensive API and web app protection.”

This report from Gartner provides clients with an opportunity to learn more about emerging technologies within the application security space. ThreatX was also recently recognized as “Most Innovative in Web Application Security” in the 10th Annual Global Infosec Awards.
