Seoul, South Korea: On February 29th, 2016, it was announced that Penta Security would be honored with two awards by Cyber Defense Magazine, one of the industry’s leading electronic information security magazines and official media partner of the RSA® Conference 2016. Penta Security’s WAPPLES was chosen as the Hot Company in Web Application Security for 2016 and MyDiamo was awarded the Editor’s Choice in Data Leakage Prevention for 2016.

Cyber Defense Magazine, along with a panel of leading independent information security experts, performs thorough research and review of potential award nominees for various security categories. The panel is also recognized for multiple cybersecurity related certifications, such as Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Founding Member of the Department of Homeland Security (FMDHS), and Certified Ethical Hacking (CEH).

Penta Security was honored for the first time for their Web Application Firewall (WAF), WAPPLES, which is powered by a patented Logic Based Analysis Engine. This detection technology enables WAPPLES to intelligently detect and filter web attacks at a higher accuracy rate with lower false positives than other industry competitors. WAPPLES is currently the number one Web Application Firewall in the APAC region based on market share. Additionally, WAPPLES technology also powers other cloud based solutions from Penta Security including WAPPLES Cloud, a cloud based WAF product that can be customized for any virtual or cloud infrastructure, and Cloudbric, a cloud based WAF service targeted for small and medium businesses.

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why Penta Security has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

Additionally, recognition was given to Penta Security’s MyDiamo, an engine-level encryption software for open source databases, such as MySQL, MariaDB, and PerconaDB. From 2013 to present, MyDiamo has been downloaded over 2,000 times and has become a leading open source database encryption software.

“The recognition of MyDiamo and WAPPLES from Cyber Defense Magazine further validates our company as an innovator. It is a great endorsement, and shows that we can provide quality products for maximum security,” said Duk Soo Kim, Penta Security’s Head of Product Planning.
