LOS ANGELES, May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prevoty today announced that it won the excellence award for Best Emerging Technology at the 2018 SC Awards. The award was presented during the 22nd annual SC Awards Gala on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, presented by SC Media.
“Winning an excellence award represents hours, weeks and months of hard work, problem-solving, and dedication,” said Illena Armstrong, VP of Editorial at SC Media. “We are proud to recognize Prevoty for their outstanding contribution to the IT security landscape.”
Winners of the 2018 SC Excellence Awards were selected by a panel of IT security experts from both the private and public sector. During the judging process, each finalist went through a rigorous evaluation that included in-depth analysis, analyst reports, and product reviews. After a thorough and comprehensive analysis of each finalist's strengths, Prevoty Autonomous Application Protection was chosen as the winner of an excellence award in the Best Emerging Technology category.
“We are delighted to be recognized for our innovation of the only autonomous application protection solution that effectively addresses application security challenges,” said Julien Bellanger, Prevoty CEO and Co-founder. “Enterprises are realizing that application-level threats are among the most dangerous and difficult to detect and stop, and this prestigious award from SC Media is a recognition of our commitment to securing business-critical applications for our customers.”
Prevoty Autonomous Application Protection is the industry’s only runtime application self-protection (RASP) solution that enables applications to monitor themselves and neutralize attacks in real-time, at runtime. It protects applications from malicious payloads – whether bugs already exist in the software or are introduced with DevOps updates – and is deployed via autonomous plugins that are not dependent on network connections. This enables rapid deployment and eliminates risks associated with latency, network calls, or data leakage, and threats such as man-in-the-middle attacks.
Because the Prevoty agent lives with the applications and services wherever they go, its protection is completely portable across any application deployment model including cloud, multi-datacenter deployments, micro services, and more.
The SC Award is the latest in a series of prestigious honors for Prevoty, which was recently cited by Forrester Research as the only leader in the RASP market.
The SC Awards are recognized throughout the cybersecurity industry and are a crowning achievement for IT security professionals and products. Each year, hundreds of applications are reviewed and narrowed down to a select group of finalists that represent the best solutions, services and professionals working around the clock to protect today’s businesses from an ever-changing landscape of security threats.
