NEW YORK, December 3, 2019: White Ops, the global leader in bot mitigation, today announced that the White Ops Bot Mitigation Platform has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Web Application Solution category for the 2020 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony during RSA on February 25, 2020 in San Francisco.
“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2019, we watched as software supply chain attacks grew bigger and bolder, DNS hijacking campaigns threatened the very integrity of the internet and targeted ransomware attacks disrupted the operations of cities, school districts and organizations in the health care, industrial and transportation sectors. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”
Now in its 23rd year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.
“Sophisticated bots look and act like humans when they visit websites, fill out forms, scrape websites, create or take over accounts and commit payment fraud,” said Tamer Hassan, Co-founder and CEO at White Ops. “Our mission is to protect the internet by verifying the humanity of every online interaction and disrupt the economics of cybercrime. Today, the White Ops Bot Mitigation Platform determines the humanity of more than one trillion interactions weekly to protect more than 200 customers, including the largest internet platforms, from fraud, cybercrime and application abuse. To be recognized by SC Media as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Web Application Solution category is an honor.”
The White Ops Bot Mitigation Platform can detect, prevent and outwit bot populations at any level of sophistication through its unique multilayered detection methodology: leveraging technical evidence, machine learning, threat intelligence and continuous adaptation. This approach enabled White Ops to take the lead role in collaborating with the FBI, Google, Facebook and many other partners in the takedown of 3ve, one of the largest botnets ever defeated.
“Cyberattacks and data mismanagement can result in major financial losses, regulatory penalties and a damaged reputation,” added Armstrong of SC Media. "That's why it's reassuring that companies such as White Ops are developing leading-edge solutions to bolster cyber defenses. For that, we honor them today."
