Cymatic Named Most Promising Start-Up Finalist in 2019-20 Cloud Awards

Sponsored by Businesswire

Cymatic today announced that is has been declared a finalist as the 2019-2020 Most Promising Start-Up in the international Cloud Computing Awards program, The Cloud Awards.

Since 2011, The Cloud Awards program has sought to champion excellence and innovation in cloud computing across multiple industry sectors. Cymatic’s inclusion as a finalist for the year’s most promising start-up is a testament to its next-generation all-in-one web application defense platform that moves protection from the network side to the client to defend against today’s most sophisticated client and browser-based attacks.

“To be shortlisted for our revolutionary work in web application defense is not only an honor, but a clear recognition of our early success in leading secure cloud technologies,” said Cymatic Founder and Chief Executive Jason Hollander. “We offer the only unified WAF that deploys at the client through a simple line of JavaScript without agents or proxies to deliver first-look, first-strike capability that is earliest in the kill chain—a fundamental shift from traditional approaches to security.”

The Cymatic platform provides universal in-session visibility and control to reduce risk across web applications, networks and users, while decreasing network traffic loads and eliminating user friction. Instead of just protecting network-based threats like traditional WAFs, Cymatic uses sophisticated artificial intelligence and machine-learning algorithms to identify page mutations and user anomalies. The platform protects against user-derived and device-based threats such as poor credential hygiene, dark web vulnerabilities and potentially risky devices. It is invisible and frictionless to users, deploys in mere minutes and has immediate time-to-value.

Head of Operations for the Cloud Awards, James Williams, said: “Simply, Cymatic has recognized the importance of adopting and pioneering leading cloud technologies in order to deliver outstanding client success, which is why they’re a deserving finalist in the Cloud Awards program. The Cloud Awards team already had a near-impossible task sorting the exceptional from the excellent and the bleeding-edge from the cutting-edge. Weighing both proven successes and exceptional promise across several unique categories is a constant challenge.”

Cymatic was selected from hundreds of organizations that entered from the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. Its advanced cloud-based microservices and real-time message-bus architecture offer unparalleled scale to provide the resilience necessary to validate and process the millions of users and transactions that touch web properties every second. The platform is engineered to work across all web applications regardless of operating system, browser or device. It eliminates the OWASP top 10, bots, CAPTCHAs, dark web threats, forced MFA, shared accounts, IP threats, device vulnerabilities and other cloud-based threats with no erosion of the user experience.
