Contrast Security Selected as SC Media 2022 Trust Award Finalist for Best Web Application Security Solution
Contrast Secure Code Platform recognized for improving operational security efficiencies by 50 Percent while accelerating development release cycles
Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure-as-they code, announced that it has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Web Application Solution category for the 2022 SC Awards. The Contrast Secure Code Platform is the only platform on the market that embeds intelligent agents directly into code to enable developers to detect vulnerabilities during both software build and post-production.
Now in its 25th year, the SC Awards are cybersecurity’s most prestigious and competitive program. Finalists are recognized for outstanding solutions, organizations, and people driving innovation and success in information security.

“It is an honor for the Contrast Secure Code Platform to be named an SC Media 2022 Trust Award Finalist for Best Web Application Security Solution,” said Steve Wilson, Chief Product Officer at Contrast Security. “As applications became more complex and distributed, traditional application security fell behind in several critical areas—including eliminating software development vulnerabilities, tracking open-source software risks, and protecting applications after release. Organizations must invest in modern solutions that solve these fundamental security needs now to protect enterprise software that has never been at greater risk of attack.”
Unlike competitors that offer post-deployment perimeter testing, Contrast Security delivers results continuously and in real-time, so that enterprises are integrating security into their entire software development pipeline. The Contrast Secure Code Platform also combines numerous data sources and analysis techniques including runtime control flow and dataflow (IAST), application code and API security, identifying all application libraries and frameworks used in the software (SCA), configuration information, and back-end connection and static scans of local files (SAST).
