Waratek Named Platinum Winner in GSN’s 2017 Homeland Security Awards Program

Waratek honored as “Best Application Security Solution” by Government Security News

DUBLIN and ATLANTA – February 20, 2018 – Waratek, the virtualization-based application security company, announced today that it has been named a Platinum Winner in the Homeland Security Awards Program under “Best Application Security Solution.” Organized by Government Security News, the Homeland Security Awards Program, exemplifies the best in cooperation between government agencies and the private sector.

The 9th annual award program’s judging criteria under the Cyber Security Products and Solutions category is based on a combination of factors including client organization, technological innovation or improvement, filling a recognized government IT security need, and flexibility of a solution to meet current and future organizational needs.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a Platinum Winner in the Homeland Security Awards Program,” said John K. Adams, CEO of Waratek. “Government agencies must have the most innovative application security solutions in place to prevent real-time cyberattacks because hackers are unrelenting in their efforts to find new ways to exploit software flaws. Recognition like the Homeland Secuity Awards drives us to continue to innovate for the benefit of the public sector and society.”

Waratek is a pioneer in Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) security solutions, offering products that address three problems faced by Development and Security teams: patching known Java and .NET flaws, protecting Java and .NET web applications from known and unknown attacks, and upgrading out-of-support Java platforms without rewriting the app’s code. Waratek’s RASP security solution is both easy to install and simple to operate, giving government agencies the security tools they need to combat current and emerging cyber threats.
