Cequence Security ASP Recognized as Gold Award Winner

Cequence Security Named Gold Winner in Info Security Product Guide’s 2019 Global Excellence Awards®

Patented AI-powered bot detection technology takes top honors for web application security.

Sunnyvale, CA – February 11, 2019 – Cequence Security announced today that Info Security Products Guide, an industry-leading information security research and advisory guide, has recognized the company’s bot detection platform as a Gold Award winner in the Website and Web Application Security category in the 15th Annual Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards®.

The company’s CQ botDefense solution, which runs on the Cequence Application Security Platform (ASP), took top honors in the prestigious global awards that recognize cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

“We always appreciate industry recognition for our game-changing application security technology,” said Larry Link, President and CEO of Cequence Security. “It’s really a credit to our engineering team, which has been laser-focused since day one on delivering maximum security value to our growing base of hyper-connected enterprise customers that are protected by CQ botDefense.”

Cequence Security is the only vendor in the industry using patented, AI-powered technology to passively detect malicious bot attacks hiding within billions of application transactions every day.

All other solutions for preventing malicious bot attacks require application modification, such as injecting JavaScript into each web application, and using SDKs to modify every mobile application. Many large organizations often have hundreds of applications, so this ends up being a never-ending, time-consuming process for IT staff. Cequence’s multi-dimensional detection technology provides complete visibility into application traffic flows, and thus eliminates the need for any application changes.

The company’s container-based Application Software Platform can be deployed on premises or in the cloud, across any number of locations. It automatically discovers all web, mobile, and API applications; automatically detects malicious bot attacks targeting those applications; and automatically defends against those attacks with various mitigation options.
