Sponsored by Businesswire

Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced that its Web Secure AppSec solution has earned a 2021 The Govies Government Security Award from Security Today magazine, the only integrated product and technology magazine reaching the entire security market. The award program honors outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. Data Theorem won the top award in the Application Security awards category.

“It is apparent that the COVID-19 pandemic had very little affect upon product development and deployment in the government security sector,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief, Security Today magazine. “We appreciate all the manufacturers who labor diligently to ensure security in the government space, including federal, state, local and Native American jurisdictions. We’re pleased to honor these winners and thank all those who participated in this amazing process.”

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).

1105 Media launched its government security awards program in 2009. In 2011, this successful program became known as The Govies. An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries and 2021 winners using criteria including Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, Impact in the Security Industry, Technical Advances, and Scalability.

“It is an honor for Web Secure to continue to be recognized with another industry award, this time by Security Today’s independent panel of security experts for its unique design to help customers secure their modern web applications,” said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. “The government sector is an important area of growth for Data Theorem, where we are seeing significant interest due to the benefits of our dynamic and run-time analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables government agencies to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation of their cloud-native web applications.”
