Kasada Named SC Media 2021 Trust Award Finalist for Best Web Application Solution
Kasada, provider of the most effective and easiest way to defend against advanced persistent bot attacks, today announced that it has been named a Trust Award finalist in the Web Application Solution category for the 2021 SC Awards. Finalists are recognized for outstanding products and solutions impacting the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced online during SC Media’s Awards Week beginning Monday, May 3, 2021.
“This recognition from SC Media is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team to deliver an industry-changing approach to the problem of bot attacks. Traditional approaches are outdated in their architecture and were not solving the problem optimally”
Kasada provides a modern, long-lasting anti-bot solution that stops attacks by preventing them from entering an organization’s infrastructure in the first place – and does so without reliance on rules, heuristics, or risk scoring. By adhering to a zero-trust philosophy, Kasada detects and stops malicious automation from the very first request, before any damage can be done. Because of this, as bots and tactics evolve, Kasada is able to successfully detect them in real-time.
“This recognition from SC Media is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team to deliver an industry-changing approach to the problem of bot attacks. Traditional approaches are outdated in their architecture and were not solving the problem optimally,” said Sam Crowther, founder and CEO of Kasada. “By combining a zero trust approach with tactics to prevent attackers from retooling, we give companies an easy way to finally solve their current and future bot problems.”
Kasada’s bot mitigation platform stops operators from retooling and reverse engineering defenses through the use of mitigative actions and exponentially difficult cryptographic challenges. Attackers become frustrated, and their financial incentive is destroyed as the cost to conduct an attack increases, encouraging operators to move on to a less expensive target. Kasada recently released V2 of its platform.
“The last year tested security professionals perhaps more than any in history,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media and editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance. “A pandemic forced a fast transition to remote working and inspired a wave of new, sophisticated attacks, and the impact of a supply chain breach reverberated across the public and private sector. The ability for organizations big and small to turn to security partners to help address this mountain of unexpected risk was and remains critical. This year’s SC Awards finalists, all of which faced many of the same unprecedented challenges, proved their commitment to both customers and the community at large.”
Now in its 24th year, the SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity organizations, products and people. 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.
“The judges considered a record number of candidates for the Trust Awards this year, but recognized those that introduced new functionality either through enhancements to existing products or through new offerings to better respond to increasingly sophisticated threats,” added Aitoro.
The 2021 SC Awards will feature an extended and expanded celebration, honoring finalists and winners through comprehensive promotion across SC Media’s full range of digital, social, and editorial channels. Industry anticipation will culminate in the kick-off of SC Awards Week on May 3, 2021.
