Cloud Secure Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) with Hacker Toolkits to Help Expose Potential Data Breaches also Earns Silver ‘ASTORS’ Award

Palo Alto, Calif.., December 7, 2021

Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced that it has earned multiple awards in the 2021 “ASTORS” Homeland Security Awards Program from American Security Today (AST). Data Theorem’s API Secure AppSec solution won the Gold “ASTORS” Homeland Security Award, while its Cloud Secure cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) earned the Silver “ASTORS” Homeland Security Award.

American Security Today’s Annual “ASTORS” Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security awards program, and today in its sixth year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies. The awards program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.

“‘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,” said AST’s Publisher, Michael J. Madsen.

Data Theorem’s API Secure addresses security concerns such as shadow APIs, serverless applications, and API gateway cross-check validation by conducting continuous security assessments on API authentication, authorization, encryption, availability, cloud storage, databases, serverless functions, and policy compliance. Data Theorem’s award-winning Analyzer Engine continuously discovers vulnerabilities in multi-cloud and on-premise environments while providing critical alerts, observability, and active protection capabilities. The API security solution discovers modern APIs; enumerates the specification using standards such as Swagger and Open API 3.0; and supports AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure platforms.

Cloud Secure is the industry’s first solution delivering attack surface management (ASM) security for cloud-native applications that starts at the client layer (mobile and web), protects the network layer (REST and GraphQL APIs), and extends down through the underlying infrastructure (cloud services). Its combination of attack surface management and run-time active protections enables both offensive and defensive security capabilities to best prevent data breaches of cloud-native applications and serverless cloud functions.

“Government is an important market for Data Theorem, and it is an honor to be recognized with multiple Homeland Security Awards,” said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. “Data Theorem’s API Secure helps government organizations deploy a complete API security program, including continuous inventory of apps and APIs, inspection, auto-triage prior to production, and auto-remediation of vulnerabilities. Cloud Secure uniquely protects these organizations’ cloud applications in multi-cloud environments due to the benefits of our dynamic and run-time analysis with offensive attack surface management and active protection with observability.”

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.
