LOS ANGELES, March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prevoty announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Prevoty gold winner of the 2018 Info Security Product Guide’s Global Excellence Awards in the Achievement of The Year category. These prestigious, global awards recognize cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technology.
The Info Security PG's 2018 Global Excellence Awards recognized Prevoty for innovating a giant step forward in application security innovation and its proven performance in the volatile application security landscape. In addition to winning gold for Achievement of The Year, Prevoty also received awards for:
- Website and Web Application Security

- Best Deployments in U.S.A.
- Companies with Tomorrow's Technology Today
Prevoty’s Autonomous Application Protection solution is the leader of the runtime application self-protection (RASP) market. Hackers target applications because they contain a trove of personally identifiable information, financial information, and other critical data. Over the past decade, app-targeted attacks have become the number-one attack vector of major breaches. Traditional application security tools have failed to protect organizations from app-targeted attacks and continue to be outsmarted by hackers.
Prevoty was founded on an entirely new, radical approach to securing massive scale, business-critical applications. Prevoty integrates security directly into applications, enabling them to protect themselves from attack using a lightning-fast, attack detection technique called Language Theoretic Security (LangSec). LangSec is the formal process of understanding how data such as content payloads, database queries, operating system commands, and more will execute in an environment. Prevoty employs LangSec via agents and plugins that attach to applications at any point in the software development life cycle, and live within applications wherever they are deployed. Prevoty inspects all incoming payloads, neutralizing threats in real-time. In short, Prevoty protected applications are secure by default.
In 2017, Prevoty achieved an innovative, new milestone: completely autonomous application protection. Prevoty Autonomous Application Protection is now deployed via autonomous plugins that perform with no dependencies on network connections. This allows for fast, seamless deployments, while eliminating the risks associated with latency, network calls, data leakage or man-in-the-middle attacks.
Prevoty’s efficacy was recently put to the test on a grand scale with the discovery of the Struts2 vulnerabilities. Prevoty customers did not need to update any policies or signatures, or take any action at all, remaining completely protected from application-targeted attacks despite the fact that their apps leveraged third-party components with unpatched Struts2 vulnerabilities. While organizations all around the world were exposed, Prevoty customer’s applications remained secure by default.
“We are proud to be recognized for our innovation, thought leadership, and maturity in the application security market,” said Julien Bellanger, CEO of Prevoty. “We’re equally honored that organizations in every industry rely on Prevoty Autonomous Application Protection to keep them more secure. We can’t thank our customers enough for their continued support and partnership.”
