WhiteHat Security Named ‘Application Security Solution of the Year’ by 2018 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards Program

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2018 – WhiteHat Security, the leading application security provider committed to securing digital business, today announced that it has been named the “Application Security Solution of the Year” by the second annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program.

The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards recognize the top companies, products, innovation and people in the cybersecurity industry today. These prestigious global awards illuminate cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

A key differentiator for WhiteHat in leading the way in this category was the WhiteHat Application Security Platform. This platform provides all of the services required to secure the entire software lifecycle (SLC) to accurately identify and verify vulnerabilities in websites and web applications–even in production. From solutions for the security team, to fast and accurate products for developers in DevOps environments, WhiteHat is able to leverage these abilities to help organizations enjoy all of the benefits of digital transformation without the security headaches.

For more than 17 years, WhiteHat Security has been providing its best in-class application security technology. The company’s always-on assessments are constantly detecting attack vectors and scanning application code to protect organizations from a cyberattack that could cost millions. Cyber defense is the core of what WhiteHat was founded on, and played a direct role in the creation of the company’s application security product family.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards as Application Security Solution of the Year,” said Craig Hinkley, CEO, WhiteHat Security. “Industry recognition like this stems from the growing recognition of our technology and market success in enabling DevSecOps with both static and dynamic application security testing, advanced artificial intelligence (AI) features and a world-class threat research center. This recognition only further validates that we’re moving in the right direction, and we’re excited to see what the future holds for WhiteHat.”

This year’s inclusion adds to the long list of recent accolades WhiteHat has received. Most recently, the leading application security provider was named a winner in the 2018 Info Security Product Guide’s Global Excellence Awards, the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide.
