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 development life cycle (SDLC). 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.

The 2020 DEVIES Awards recognize technical innovation, adoption and reception in the developer technology industry and by the developer community. The DEVIES Awards are the only awards recognizing excellence in developer tools, products and technology, across 20+ categories. The DEVIES Awards Ceremony takes place during DeveloperWeek 2020 (Feb. 12-16, Oakland Convention Center). It is the world’s largest developer and engineering conference and expo, organizing the global developer economy, with 8,000+ attendees.

The 2020 DEVIES Awards received hundreds of nominations, and the WhiteHat Application Security Platform was selected as a DEVIES Award winner based on three criteria: (1) attracted attention, awareness and adoption; (2) general well-regard by the developer, engineering & IT community; and (3) being a leader in its sector for innovation.
