Data Theorem Honored for API Security in 2022 CISO Choice Awards Program

Distinguished Board of CISO Judges Recognizes Data Theorem API Protect for Uniquely Delivering Runtime Observability and Active Protection for Modern API Environments

Palo Alto, Calif.

Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced that its API Protect runtime observability and active protection offering has been honored by CISOs Connect™ in the 2022 CISO Choice Awards Program, a recognition of industry vendors by a distinguished board of leading CISOs. API Protect was honored in the API Security awards category.

Data Theorem’s API Protect addresses security concerns such as API discovery, inventory, and overall attack surface management (ASM) with runtime observability and runtime protection. API Protect supports both public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and private/hybrid cloud environments. API Protect continuously verifies authentication, authorization, and encryption policies while actively alerting against known API attacks such as SSRF, SQL Injection, XSS, OWASP API Top 10 Attacks, and custom BOLA attacks.

“It is rewarding to be recognized for API security in the 2022 CISO Choice Awards Program, especially since honorees were named by an independent panel of CISO industry experts,” said Doug Dooley, Chief Operations Officer at Data Theorem. “API Protect, as part of our overall Active Protection suite, was first announced in November 2021. Since that time, the customer reception and market adoption of this unique API capability has exceeded our expectations, especially among the largest Fortune 500 Enterprises who leverage it to protect their cloud-native APIs and modern application stacks.”

The CISO Choice Awards Program judges were from organizations across industries, and their choices were rooted in firsthand knowledge and insights from building and maintaining their own programs. Criteria for selecting the winners were clear and based on the real-world experiences and perspectives of end-user executives.

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 runtime analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation. Data Theorem is one of the first vendors to provide a full stack application security analyzer that connects attack surfaces of applications starting at the client layers found in mobile and web, the network layers found in APIs, and the infrastructure layers found in cloud services.
