Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards Honors Contrast Security as Editor's Choice in Application Security


We are excited to announce that at RSA last week, Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards honored Contrast Security as a winner for 2019 Editor’s Choice in Application Security! We are thrilled to receive this honor on the heels of our recent $65 million Series D funding round, as it further validates the visionary approach of our innovative software security platform.

Modern software today requires businesses to embrace innovative software models, changing the rules of engagement. Contrast Security is doing just that and is disrupting the application security market, breaking decades-old constraints as the first and only software security platform that is built for the modern software era. 

This is Cyber Defense Magazine’s seventh year of honoring InfoSec innovators,which recognizes the leading InfoSec companies who create and offer the most respected product and services. Winners share a drive for greatness and innovation, who strive to get ahead of the next breach, stop the cyber-criminals and hackers for good, and prevent threats against critical infrastructure.

After reviewing nearly 3,000 entrants, Contrast Security was selected as one of roughly 200 innovators in the InfoSec space! This recognition further strengthens Contrast Security’s position as the leading platform to enable secure DevOps. 

“With Cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and projected to reach over $1T in theft and damages in 2019, we are proud to see Contrast Security as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals and staying ahead of threats,” said Pierlugi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
