Contrast Security Selected as SC Media 2022 Trust Award Finalist for Best Web Application Security Solution
Contrast Secure Code Platform recognized for improving operational security efficiencies by 50 Percent while accelerating development release cycles
May 26, 2022 — Los Altos, CA — Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure-as-they code, announced today that it has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Web Application Solution category for the 2022 SC Awards. The Contrast Secure Code Platform is the only platform on the market that embeds intelligent agents directly into code to enable developers to detect vulnerabilities during both software build and post-production.
Now in its 25th year, the SC Awards are cybersecurity's most prestigious and competitive program. Finalists are recognized for outstanding solutions, organizations, and people driving innovation and success in information security.
"It is an honor for the Contrast Secure Code Platform to be named an SC Media 2022 Trust Award Finalist for Best Web Application Security Solution," said Steve Wilson, Chief Product Officer at Contrast Security. "As applications became more complex and distributed, traditional application security fell behind in several critical areas—including eliminating software development vulnerabilities, tracking open-source software risks, and protecting applications after release. Organizations must invest in modern solutions that solve these fundamental security needs now to protect enterprise software that has never been at greater risk of attack."
Unlike competitors that offer post-deployment perimeter testing, Contrast Security delivers results continuously and in real-time, so that enterprises are integrating security into their entire software development pipeline. The Contrast Secure Code Platform also combines numerous data sources and analysis techniques including runtime control flow and dataflow (IAST), application code and API security, identifying all application libraries and frameworks used in the software (SCA), configuration information, and back-end connection and static scans of local files (SAST).
"The Contrast Secure Code Platform and other Trust award finalists reflect astonishing levels of innovation across the information security industry, and underscore vendor resilience and responsiveness to a rapidly evolving threat landscape," said Jill Aitoro, Senior Vice President of Content Strategy at CyberRisk Alliance. "We are so proud to recognize leading products, people and companies through a trusted program that continues to attract both new entrants and industry mainstays that come back year after year."
The 2022 SC Awards were the most competitive to date, with a record 800 entries received across 38 categories – a 21 percent increase over 2021. This year, SC Awards expanded its recognition program to include several new award categories that reflect shifting dynamics and emerging industry trends. The new Trust Award categories recognize solutions in cloud, data security, managed detection and more.
Winners will be announced during SC Awards week, scheduled to begin on August 22, 2022. To learn more about Contrast Secure Code Platform, please visit: https://www.contrastsecurity.com/platform.
