GENEVA and SAN FRANCISCO, September 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
At the beginning of June 2015, information security consultancy High-Tech Bridge has been ranked #65 at Cybersecurity 500, among the Top 100 of the hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies to watch in 2015 according to Cybersecurity Ventures.
Since then, High-Tech Bridge has opened a branch office in San Francisco (CA), and signed a strategic partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to deliver continuous and on-demand web security testing via ImmuniWeb®. Many new customers, mainly represented by the banking and financial sectors, became repeat clients of ImmuniWeb for their critical web applications and websites.
Today, High-Tech Bridge announces that all these positive changes have been taken into consideration by Cybersecurity Venture editors, who now rank High-Tech Bridge as #37 in Cybersecurity 500.
The Q3 Web Application Security Report recently produced by Cybersecurity Ventures highlights the importance of web security in corporate cybersecurity strategy and defense:
- A survey in "The SANS Institute 2015 State of Application Security Report" indicates that public-facing web applications are rated as the major concern by 74 percent of respondents.
- More than one-quarter - 27 percent - of all security breaches at banks last year involved web app attacks, according to the most recent "Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report".
- The market for global corporate web security was sized at over $1.7 billion (USD) in 2014, and is anticipated to reach a value of $3.2 billion by 2020, according to a report from Future Market Insights (FMI).
"We expect the percentage of corporations turning to outside providers for web application scanning to trend way up," says Steve Morgan, Founder and CEO at Cybersecurity Ventures. "Web applications have become a security choke point and enterprises cannot adequately manage the exploits. They need third parties to help."
Ilia Kolochenko, High-Tech Bridge's CEO and Chief Architect of ImmuniWeb, comments: "We are delighted that our continuous efforts are positively recognized by the market and the industry. In the near future we are preparing several exciting announcements about future development of ImmuniWeb web application security testing platform."
