Cyber Defense Magazine Honors Contrast Security as a Leader in Web Application Security with 2018 InfoSec Award


We are delighted to announce that this week at RSA, Contrast Security was recognized as a leader in Web Application Security by Cyber Defense Magazine’s (CDM) 2018 InfoSec Awards.

Each year, CDM’s InfoSec Awards honors the hottest, market leading InfoSec companies that are offering incredible products and services. After reviewing nearly 3,000 entrants, Contrast Security was selected as one of roughly 200 innovators in the InfoSec space!

CDM-INFOSEC-WINNER-2018-MEDIUMContrast is successfully disrupting the application security market, which has been dominated by slow, inaccurate end of lifecycle scanners and manual penetration testers for over a decade. This award validates the need for a new approach to security through technology that enables software applications to protect themselves against cyberattacks.


Here’s what Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine had to say:

“Cybercrime, Hactivism, Cyberespionage, Ransomware and malware exploits are all on the rise. Contrast Security is a leader in Web Application Security for its innovative approach and mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat, proactively.”

In today’s digital world, every company is becoming a software company. Not only do they need security that can protect from software vulnerabilities and attacks on applications, but they need security that fits with the technologies they’re already using, including Agile, DevOps and cloud environments. No other application security solution is as well suited for these modern environments as Contrast and we are proud to be honored by CDM for creating a solution that successfully fits these needs.
