Contrast Security was named Rookie Security Company of the Year at the SC Awards dinner and presentation. Contrast, the first company to enable self-protecting software, delivered an outstanding initial product within its first two years. Contrast is transforming the market with a bold new approach to software application security.
Every company builds or buys software apps to run their business. Unfortunately, application code exposes critical vulnerabilities to hackers. According to the latest data from Contrast Labs, sensitive data exposure, including missing or weak encryption, is the top web application vulnerability, plaguing 69 percent of web applications. As a result, attacks on web applications account for over 40 percent of incidents resulting in a data breach. Contrast solves this problem with a bold new secure technology platform that injects Contrast agents into software code, instrumenting applications with thousands of smart, agile sensors that detect and correct vulnerabilities before deployment, and protect apps while operating.
“As organizations compete to find the best solutions to address cybersecurity threats, Contrast is pioneering real-time vulnerability and application protection,” said Alan Naumann, chairman and chief executive officer at Contrast Security. “It is an honor to be recognized by the SC Awards as a company that is revolutionizing the approach to software application security. This validates our commitment to meet the needs of DevOps environments and support software applications regardless of whether they’re in the cloud or containers, or on premise.”
Contrast is fundamentally changing the way software is both produced and operated, delivering the only enterprise security product that fully integrates the ability to find and fix application vulnerabilities during development, and monitor/block application attacks in production, all within one unified environment. Contrast makes software self-protecting so it can continuously defend itself from vulnerabilities and attacks.
