Industry Recognition for Runtime Application Security: Omdia Research

February 19, 2021

With ever-increasing cyber threats, it’s important that organizations continually assess the effectiveness of their application security. One of the areas often left under protected is runtime, which is where the Cequence Application Security Platform shines (you don’t have to just take our word for it, either). We’re proud to be recognized by Omdia Research as a Next-Generation Application Security (NGAS): Runtime provider in their recent Market Radar report. You can review their assessment of the Cequence Application Security Platform here.

The attack landscape is evolving as fast or faster than the applications themselves – as highlighted by threat actors focusing more on APIs, for the same reasons developers love them – fast, easy to use, flexible. Combined with the emergence of Bots-as-a-Service and the dramatic shift to online commerce driven by the recent pandemic, organizations must continue to rethink where security resides – development, security, or is it as most believe, a combination of both?

Omdia recommends that organizations take the shifts in development and security into account as they evaluate how best to protect their web applications and APIs from a range of threats. The Omdia NGAS recommends runtime protection from cyber attacks using a combination of Bot prevention, API security, WAF, DDoS, and RASP. From the report discussion on the Cequence Application Security Platform:

“The consolidation of API, web and mobile protection into a unified platform improves transparency of API activities, aids governance and ensures that security is embedded into the application development framework. It also offers more security automation, which will reduce the amount of time spent in development and in investigating or defending against vulnerabilities hidden in APIs or automated bot attacks.”

– Rik Turner, Principal Analyst, Omdia Research

Cequence solves the traditional DDoS problem by partnering with Amazon CloudFront and, when combined with our SaaS deployment option, customers can begin protecting their APIs and web applications in as little as 60 minutes.
