AppSec disruptor wins “Editor’s Choice for Application Security” in 11th Annual Global InfoSec Awards
Tel Aviv, April 26, 2023 – Backslash Security, the new cloud-native application security solution for enterprise AppSec teams, today announced that it has won “Editor’s Choice for Application Security” from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. This distinction is part of the publisher’s highly sought-after 11th Annual Global InfoSec Awards program, announced at this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco, California.
Backslash emerged from stealth last month to provide AppSec teams with a cloud-native application security solution designed for modern, microservices-based cloud-native applications. The Backslash solution offers AppSec teams unprecedented visibility into modern application architectures and significantly reduces low-value security alerts so high-risk code is addressed swiftly and accurately.
“This win from Cyber Defense Magazine is a powerful validator of the modern and innovative approach Backslash is bringing to the application security industry,” said Shahar Man, co-founder and CEO of Backslash. “AppSec teams are burdened with time-consuming and ineffective methods of identifying code risks, without comprehensive cloud context. We are here to bring unparalleled clarity and insight to AppSec teams seeking to navigate cloud-native security risk.”
“Backslash 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 mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
Backslash is thrilled to be a member of this coveted group of winners, located here: http://www.cyberdefenseawards.com/.
In addition to this latest accolade, Backslash is a winner of the Cyber Top Innovations award, presented by Enterprise Security Tech.
