WhiteHat Security Selected as SC Media 2019 Trust Award Finalist for Best Web Application Solution

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 20, 2018 — WhiteHat Security, the leading application security provider committed to securing digital businesses, today announced that the WhiteHat Application Security Platform has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Web Application Solution category for the 2019 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on March 5, 2019 in San Francisco.

As the pioneer and market leader in application security testing, WhiteHat Security provides industry-leading accuracy and speed to automate security across the entire software life cycle (SLC). With a risk-based approach to application security, WhiteHat provides customers with the ability to strike a balance between accelerating business innovations while minimizing business risks.

WhiteHat does this through its SaaS solution, which continuously assesses risk for businesses’ software assets, helps businesses embed security within the SLC and provides developers the tools and services they need to securely develop software.

“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2018, we watched as ransomware took down entire city governments, popular online platforms were accused of mishandling user data, and technology giants announced an unprecedented industry-wide effort to solve the Spectre and Meltdown CPU vulnerabilities. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”

Now in its 22nd year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.

“We at WhiteHat are extremely honored to be named a finalist by SC Media this year,” said Craig Hinkley, CEO, WhiteHat Security. “Being considered for this prestigious award further validates the work we are doing at WhiteHat to make DevSecOps a reality by enabling organizations to secure applications throughout and beyond the software life cycle. Applications are the lifeblood of businesses, and no matter how many websites or applications our customers need to secure, we are here to meet any demand.”

 “Nobody understands the cybersecurity battle better than the cybersecurity professionals who work day in and day out to clean up and protect businesses from malicious attacks,” added Armstrong of SC Media. “WhiteHat Security is one of a select few to receive this tremendous recognition of a Trust Award finalist, and they should be proud of the work this represents.”
