Computing Selects Cymatic for Security Excellence Awards 2020

Sponsored by Businesswire

Cymatic today announced that it has been chosen as a finalist for the Security Innovation of the Year in AI and Automation and the Remote Security awards as part of Computing’s 2020 Security Excellence Awards.

Computing celebrates the achievements of the IT industry’s leading security companies, solutions, products, and personalities that keep every other part of the industry operating. Award categories include product- and project-related recognition, organizational achievements, and accolades for outstanding individual success. 

Cymatic was chosen for its breakthrough results that combine client-side WAF defenses with a proprietary vulnerability, awareness, detection, and response (VADR™) engine to prevent cyber threats from executing. Its sophisticated AI and ML capabilities provide automated vulnerability detection and response actions that continuously analyze user and app activity for OWASP Top 10 threats and the CWE Top 25 in addition to compliance for PCI-DSS, HIPAA, NIST CSF, and SOC2.

“Sixty-five percent of organizations have experienced application-layer attacks that bypassed their WAF last year, and 47% of them don’t even expect their WAFs to stop attacks,” said Paul Storm, Cymatic founder and president. “Our automated AI- and biometrics-based defense offers proactive risk management and consistently outperforms the signature- and rules-based decision making common in traditional approaches to web app sec.”

Computing also recognized Cymatic for helping a top online mortgage lender swiftly and seamlessly move thousands of workers to remote locations during COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders without losing any of the strict security standards the lender previously managed from user desktops on site. On-premises employees shifted to remote work in BYOD settings without the need for new hardware investments, CAPTCHAs, MFA credentials, or other additions to the technology stack. And because the solution was also designed to meet compliance guidance from NIST and PCI, there was no downtime, no increase in network traffic, and no user friction.
