Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced that its API Discover and API Inspect AppSec security solutions have earned Best Application Security and Best API Security Inspection Solution honors in the 2020 “ASTORS” Homeland Security Awards Program from American Security Today (AST). Data Theorem won the Platinum Award in each award category.

Data Theorem’s broad AppSec portfolio protects organizations from data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web frameworks, API-driven microservices and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its award-winning Analyzer Engine, which leverages a new type of dynamic and run-time analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation. Data Theorem’s AppSec portfolio secures mobile apps, cloud-driven APIs, and modern web applications.

The “ASTORS” Awards, now in its fifth year, is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, highlighting the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today. The program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefits and intelligence to end users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.

“Today, the United States is increasingly focusing on protecting public spaces, as well as IT/cyber security networks, and they are calling on innovative companies such as Data Theorem to help them do so,” said Tammy Waitt, co-founder and editorial director of American Security Today. “‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry.”

“It is an honor to be recognized with these Best Application Security and Best API Security Inspection Solution awards in this year’s ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program,” said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. “Data Theorem’s Analyzer Engine has reached remarkable global scalability and performance due in part to the fact that all of our products were born and developed in a multi-cloud environment, and we have been an early adopter of serverless technologies. We plan to extend our tradition of security innovation via our cloud platform partnerships.”

“2020 has been a very challenging year for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program was again a huge success, with many new categories added, including a section for COVID-19 Detection and Innovation,” added Michael Madsen, co-founder and publisher of American Security Today.
