DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ThreatX, the leading provider of SaaS-based web application firewall (WAF) solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Web Application Solution category for the 2019 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on March 5, 2019, in San Francisco.
“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2018, we watched as ransomware took down entire city governments, popular online platforms were accused of mishandling user data, and technology giants announced an unprecedented industry-wide effort to solve the Spectre and Meltdown CPU vulnerabilities. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”
Now in its 22nd year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.
"Being named a finalist by SC Media is tremendous validation for ThreatX and underscores how we are successfully changing the face of WAF security,” said Bret Settle, CEO ThreatX. “Our behavior-based, next-gen WAF, is helping our customers to make a seismic shift in how they deploy and manage their web application security.”
“Nobody understands the cybersecurity battle better than the cybersecurity professionals who work day in and day out to clean up and protect businesses from malicious attacks,” added Armstrong of SC Media. “ThreatX is one of a select few to receive this tremendous recognition of a Trust Award finalist, and they should be proud of the work this represents.”
