ThreatX Wins Best Product in Web Application Security


Company’s WAAP platform delivers next-generation alternative to traditional and legacy web application firewalls

ThreatX, the leading web application and API protection platform, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, has named ThreatX a winner in the 2021 CDM Global Awards. ThreatX was recognized in the “Best Product in Web Application Security” category. This is Cyber Defense Magazine’s ninth year honoring the most innovative and valuable cyber defense companies from around the globe.

“Enterprises increasingly demand a single platform to protect all web applications and APIs from today’s many blended and evolving threats,” said Gene Fay, Chief Executive Officer of ThreatX. “Receiving the award for Best Product in Web Application Security validates our mission to deliver a solution to our customers that responds and reacts to the steady, evasive, and often low-and-slow multi-phase attacks on their critical business infrastructure.”

ThreatX provides customers with comprehensive web application and API protection by bringing together web application security, API protection, bot management and DDoS mitigation to deliver highly effective threat detection that focuses specifically on the attacker rather than the individual attacks. ThreatX’s methodology is unique in the industry–the company’s single risk engine employs multiple detection techniques to build a dynamic profile of threat actors as they move through the cyber kill chain.

“ThreatX embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

ThreatX is poised for longevity and growth at a time when organizations are facing unprecedented assaults on the web applications and APIs that run their businesses. By utilizing a solution that accumulates and tracks risks that would otherwise go unnoticed, ThreatX customers are able to end the whack-a-mole approach to application security and take advantage of the security benefits offered by web application and API protection (WAAP) solutions over legacy or traditional web application firewalls (WAFs).
