Award winning Application Security company brings its visionary approach and innovative software security platform to Japan
Tokyo, Japan – June 24, 2019 – Contrast Security, a Los Altos, California based applications security company and pioneer in embedding vulnerability analysis and exploit prevention directly into modern software, today announced its subsidiary, Contrast Security GK. Contrast Security is the leading provider of cyber security technology which enables software applications to protect and prevent security exploits in the software development and production environment.
Businesses today are developing software at breakneck speeds fueled by modern approaches such as Agile, DevOps, microservices, APIs, cloud-native apps and PaaS environments. This creates a major gap between the demands for faster software development and the challenges brought about by legacy software security tools. Contrast Security is a pioneer in creating a new approach, leveraging patented binary instrumentation to protect applications at every point in their lifecycle. Modern software requires an equally modern security model that can protect the integrity of the business with innovative security safeguards built directly into the software as they are developed and deployed.
Contrast Security is breaking decades-old constraints as the first and only software security platform that is built for the modern software era. The company has received $122 million in total funding with Battery Ventures, Warburg Pincus, General Catalyst, M12 (Microsoft's Venture Fund), AXA Venture Partners and Acero Capital to meet the rapidly increasing demand for the company’s modern approach to security software.
“With significant growth and success in the US and Europe markets, and strong support from enterprise customers, industry analysts and top tier investors, our modern security software and accurate and continuous software protection is becoming essential to organizations across the globe,” said Alan Naumann, CEO at Contrast Security. “Contrast Security is now ready to offer this innovative solution to Japan. Our products will be localized to enable fast adoption in the next few months.”
Contrast Security's unified platform includes its flagship products, Contrast Assess and Contrast Protect, that work continuously across popular development approaches (DevOps, Agile, Waterfall, etc.) and technologies (Cloud, Containers, Open Source Software, etc.) to enable protection throughout the software lifecycle. Contrast Security's platform allows IT executives to finally close the chasm between the number of applications needed to run the business and the resources needed to secure them. In 2018 alone, Contrast Security discovered over 1,900,000 vulnerabilities and protected against over 52,000,000 confirmed applications attacks across billions of transactions.
