Company’s Modern Approach to Bot Mitigation Recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine During 2021 RSA Conference

NEW YORK — May 19, 2021Kasada, provider of the most effective and easiest way to defend against advanced persistent bot attacks, today announced that it has been awarded the Editor’s Choice Award for Web Application Security by the 9th Annual Global InfoSec Awards, sponsored by Cyber Defense Magazine and hosted at the annual RSA Conference. The complete list of this year’s winners is located here:

Kasada accurately identifies and stops malicious automation before it’s allowed to enter an organization’s infrastructure. By applying a zero trust philosophy to bot mitigation, Kasada defends web, mobile and API channels against automated threats including account takeover, online fraud, content scraping, and inventory hoarding. Kasada is able to detect and stop bots, in real-time, including new ones never seen before.

“We’re thrilled to receive this prestigious award, recognizing the success of the unique approach we bring to solving the bot problem,” said Sam Crowther, founder and CEO of Kasada. “Bot operators continue to retool and change their tactics to beat the latest defenses. You have to keep ahead of the attackers and make it too difficult – and expensive – for their attacks to be successful.”

By utilizing mitigative actions and presenting bot operators with exponentially difficult cryptographic challenges, Kasada’s bot mitigation platform strikes back by making it expensive to conduct an attack, while frustrating operators from retooling and reverse engineering defenses.

“Kasada embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,” added Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

This is Cyber Defense Magazine’s ninth year of honoring global InfoSec innovators. The submission requirements for the award are for any startup, early stage, later stage or public companies in the information security (InfoSec) space who believe they have a unique and compelling value proposition for their product or service. The judges are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of the company submitted materials on the website of each submission including but not limited to data sheets, white papers, product literature and other market variables.
