Edgio Wins “Overall Web Security Solution of The Year” in 7th Annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards Program

Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies

Edgio, Inc. (Nasdaq: EGIO), the platform of choice for speed, security, and simplicity at the edge, today announced that its Edgio Web Application and API protection (WAAP) solution has been selected as winner of the “Overall Web Security Solution of the Year” award in the 7th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.

Edgio WAAP provides protection against DDoS, malicious bots, and other automated threats, while mitigating the latest application and network layer attacks and providing real-time analytic insights. Its proprietary, high-performance rulesets protect against known and zero-day threats, with machine learning (ML) to detect evolving threats. Its low false positive rates reduce alert fatigue, while its unique Dual WAAP mode predicts the impact of a virtual patch before deployment in production.

The breakthrough solution integrates with existing DevSecOps workflows, and users can embed security directly into app development. One hundred percent API-driven, it offers seamless integration with existing CI/CD pipelines as well as SIEMs, SOARs and Terraform.

Additionally, ML algorithms detect, identify, and prioritize threats, collecting and analyzing big data with high accuracy and real-time defense. DevOps teams can protect web applications and APIs with web application firewall (WAF), bot management, API security, and DDoS protection.

“We built our solution for DevSecOps, providing security that is never a blocker to innovation. The uniquely user-friendly interface allows for simplification of complex data, giving clear insight into the risks that our customers’ web applications and APIs would otherwise carry. Thank you to CyberSecurity Breakthrough for this validation of what we have built,” said Ajay Kapur, CTO and GM of Applications for Edgio. “Edgio recognizes that protecting modern applications requires a holistic, multi-layer solution, so we have been investing accordingly and will continue to serve as a partner to help thwart attacks and protect business-critical applications and APIs.”

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.

“Edgio WAAP boosts security without sacrificing performance, helping DevSecOps teams offer the highest levels of protection without sacrificing performance. Web applications are open for business 24/7, and cybercriminals are constantly looking for a way in,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Edgio makes it easy to build effective security into modern web applications, innovate faster and lower risk against breaches. With Edgio’s high-performance edge security, organizations can secure business-critical applications and APIs in order to protect their brand and grow their revenue.”

With Edgio WAAP, users can also customize their security policies, and Edgio's WAAP offers comprehensive reporting which enables quick recognition of threat trends. Though Edgio’s solutions are built for self-service, managed security services can also help with day-to-day operations and the company’s 24x7 SOC offers support before, during and after an attack.
