Waratek Honored by CRN and Cyber Defense Magazine for Innovative Application Security Solution

DUBLIN AND ATLANTA – March 28, 2017 – Waratek, the virtualization-based application security company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Waratek to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN’s Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.

Last month, Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, also honored Waratek as the leader in the “application security” category of its Infosec Awards.

Waratek offers security solutions for application protection and operational efficiency in four key areas: Application Protection, Zero Day Defense, Virtual Patching, and Legacy Platforms. Waratek’s solutions defend against attacks in the full software stack in a customer’s existing runtime environment. Waratek’s Application Security Platform prevents real-time attacks with no false positives, backed by a guarantee against OWASP Top Ten attacks.

“In an age of cyberattacks and heightened concerns about cybercrime against businesses of all sizes, protecting data has become a top priority, and security solutions are in higher demand than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual Security 100 list honors the expert technology suppliers at the forefront of this thriving field, and supports solution providers in their search for the right vendor partners to help them leverage the rich business opportunities it offers.”

“We are honored to be ranked on CRN’s Security 100 list and recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine’s Infosec Awards, especially as application security continues to become a more pressing concern for businesses in many industries,” said Brian Maccaba, Waratek CEO. “Our inclusion on this list underscores the value of application security, which has historically been overlooked by companies that dedicate most of their resources to securing the perimeter. Lack of visibility in the application layer limits comprehensive security, but our solutions detect and prevent real-time attacks without false positives and without slowing application performance.”
