Cymatic delivers where traditional WAFs fail. It provides true protection against the OWASP top 10 without the cost, complexity, or compliance shortfalls that accompany legacy deployments. The platform installs at the client with a single line of JavaScript to combat modern-day attack vectors such as Magecart, cross-site scripting (XSS), code-injection attacks, session hijacking, account takeovers, credential stuffing, bot attacks, and poor user security hygiene.

“We are thrilled to be named a 2020 Top 100 Cybersecurity Startup as further recognition of our groundbreaking advancements in client-side web application security,” said Jason Hollander, Cymatic founder and chief executive. “We continue to receive industry accolades for our innovative behavioral risk engine that allows customers to better protect their web properties from even the most malicious and persistent attacks, all in less than 20 minutes.”

The CymaticONE platform integrates out of the box with most current security environments and easily plugs into leading policy enforcement protocols to provide visibility across the technology stack and unmatched vulnerability, awareness, detection, and response (VADR) capabilities for all web applications and portals. Unlike signature-based solutions, Cymatic provides instant, continuous in-session streaming intelligence to determine in real time if something or someone has compromised a web session–and it eliminates CAPTCHAs, forced MFA, shared accounts, and IP threats to reduce expense across the technology stack and shrink enterprise risk.
