Recognized as a credential abuse defense leader for making attacks more difficult to conduct by reducing economic incentives that motivate hackers
NEW YORK, NY — August 19, 2020 — Kasada, a leading global online traffic integrity solution and services provider, today announced that it has been recognized by CB Insights as a 2020 Cyber Defender. Kasada was one of 28 early- to mid-stage, high-momentum startups to make the list, each of which has pioneered technology with the potential to shape the future of cybersecurity.
Kasada was recognized as a 2020 Cyber Defender in the Credential Stuffing Abuse category for defending web assets and users from the abuse of stolen credentials. Cyber Defenders in this category are developing solutions to identify bots and create burdensome authentication processes for them, making credential stuffing more difficult and deterring hackers.
Kasada helps protect against credential stuffing by identifying malicious, automated web traffic or bots. The report further notes the company uses algorithms to detect signs of automation in web traffic and assigns increasingly difficult asymmetric cryptographic challenges to the traffic deemed as malicious.
“We are pleased to be recognized by CB Insights in the category of credential stuffing abuse. Malicious automated attacks are one of the biggest and most challenging problems in cybersecurity,” said Kasada CEO, Pascal Podvin. “Our unique approach stops attacks from the very first request while making automated attacks financially unviable. With a time-to-value within 30 minutes and frictionless end user experience, the Kasada architecture is valued for its simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and superior efficacy.”
Kasada has recently announced new Series B funding led by Ten Eleven Ventures and plans to further expand its operations into the United States.
