Data Theorem Web Secure Wins Most Innovative App of the Year Honors in 10th Annual Best in Biz Awards Program

Web Secure Product Earns Recognition for Automating Analysis and Remediation to Protect Against Modern Web Application Data Breaches

Palo Alto, CA., January 6, 2021

Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced that its Web Secure AppSec solution has earned Most Innovative App of the Year honors in the 10th annual Best in Biz Awards Program, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America. Awarded last month, Data Theorem was named a Silver winner in the “Most Innovative App of the Year” awards category.

“Tough choices in the 10th annual Best in Biz Awards because all participating companies were deep with talent and flowing with results, but in the end those that most discernibly and directly impacted the most people won out for me,” said Bob Makin, Courier News, judging his second Best in Biz Awards competition.

Launched in June 2020, Web Secure is the industry’s first full-stack application security analyzer that provides vulnerability analysis for modern web applications from the web-layer down to its embedded APIs and cloud resources. This product enables DevOps and security teams to improve web application security testing for issues that have plagued the industry for years by both identifying and helping remediate potential data breaches in modern web applications, also known as Single-Page Applications (SPAs).

Since the program’s inception in 2011, winners in Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels assembled each year from some of the most respected newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Combining top editors’ and reporters’ unparalleled expertise and experience with the objectivity inherent in the journalistic ethos, and further enhanced by the variety of outlets represented, Best in Biz Awards judging panels are uniquely able to determine the best of the best from among hundreds of competitive entries. The 2020 judging panel included, among others, writers from Barron’s, Consumer Affairs, USA Today, and Wired.

“Being honored with a Most Innovative App of the Year award late in 2020 was a great way to wrap up what proved to be a landmark year for Data Theorem,” said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. “Last year we set company records for customer growth, expansion internationally, and industry recognition, including being named a Gartner Cool Vendor and being a sample vendor listed in four Gartner Hype Cycles. In 2020 we expanded the offerings in our award-winning AppSec portfolio, including Web Secure protecting modern web apps, and this year we have bigger innovations we’ll introduce to further broaden our protection of mobile, cloud and web applications.”

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. Data Theorem’s AppSec portfolio secures mobile apps, cloud-driven APIs, and modern web applications.
