Application Security, Inc. Takes Home Three Data Security Wins At 2012 Golden Bridge Awards, Wins Best In Database Security For Second Consecutive Year

DbProtect Awarded in Best Database Security, Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation Categories; AppDetectivePro Awarded in Best Security Audit Category

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Application Security, Inc.(AppSecInc) the leading provider of database security solutions for the enterprise, today announced that its products, DbProtect and AppDetectivePro, received honors in three categories at the 2012 Golden Bridge Awards last night in San Francisco, CA. For the second straight year, DbProtect was chosen as the winner in the database security category.

Taking home prizes in the Database Security and Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation categories, AppSecInc’s DbProtect platform provides a complete database security, risk and compliance solution for enterprise organizations. The innovative software identifies and monitors vulnerabilities, missing patches, misconfigurations, excessive user privileges, and suspicious activity. DbProtect also features a correlation capability that allows the system to instantly detect toxic combinations where multiple issues converge to leave a system highly vulnerable to attack or misuse. Combined with DbProtect Active Response, the system can automatically protect exposed databases without the need for patching, reconfiguration, or extensive application regression testing.

AppSecInc’s AppDetectivePro, the de-facto standard for database auditing, scanning and vulnerability assessment, won a bronze medal in the Security Audit category. AppDetectivePro is utilized by corporate auditors and IT advisors, regardless of skill level, to perform easy and repeatable database security assessments, capture all results for manual control checks, and generate compliance reports.

AppSecInc’s products are backed by the TeamSHATTER knowledgebase, the most extensive set of database vulnerability and misconfiguration checks and rules on the market. AppSecInc’s ASAP Update mechanism ensures protection remains current. As new vulnerabilities and exploits are identified and database patches are released, DbProtect and AppDetectivePro are systematically updated to ensure the latest protection for critical database assets.

“Winning the best in database security for the second year is a result of AppSecInc’s commitment to listening to customers and producing easy-to-implement, cost-effective solutions to safeguard sensitive data,” said Thom VanHorn, Vice President of Global Marketing, AppSecInc. “Our comprehensive solutions allow organizations of any size to create an effective security infrastructure that is right for their unique needs, meet compliance requirements and protect against malicious attacks.”
