Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Oct. 5, 2023 – Bright Security, a leading provider of Developer-Centric Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) solutions, today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “Vulnerability Assessment Solution of the Year” award in the 7th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.
Bright Security prioritizes embedding DAST at the early stages of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Our developer-centric DAST approach aims to systematically eliminate application security backlogs, allowing for more secure and efficient development workflows. Developers can use Bright’s unique plugin for popular integrated development environments (IDE) as early as Unit Testing.
“Legacy solutions that provide core DAST functionality for AppSec professionals are notoriously prone to accuracy issues and are being used much later in the SDLC. Because of this, there’s a bottleneck in AppSec security vulnerability identification and remediation,” said Gadi Bashvitz, CEO of Bright Security. “We’re proud to receive this award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough as our solution is focused on helping AppSec professionals who are outnumbered by developers and struggle to keep with the velocity of changes leading to vulnerabilities existing in production. Our tool was built to be developer-first and empower them to create more secure applications and APIs.”
The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 20 different countries.
“Bright Security, our ‘Vulnerability Assessment Solution of The Year,’ is leading the trend in AppSec to empower developers to do more. AppSec has been in distress with developers greatly outnumbering security teams, resulting in a backlog of applications and APIs not having been tested for vulnerabilities,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “By providing an approachable developer-centric solution, Bright is helping organizations to realize significant ROI and secure their environment by implementing vulnerability scans as early as unit testing to reduce the amount of vulnerabilities introduced into production.”
