Company Wins Three 2018 Info Security Products Guide Excellence Awards Including Gold for “Cloud Security Product or Service,” Bronze for “Innovation in Cloud Security” and Bronze for “Most Innovative Security Service of the Year” for Introducing the Industry’s First Fully-Automated Continuous Application Security Solution.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Mar 01, 2018

ShiftLeft™ Inc., an innovator in application-specific cloud security, today announced it has been honored in the fourteenth annual Global Excellence Awards by Info Security Products Guide with three awards, including: Gold for “Cloud Security Product or Service,” Bronze for “Innovation in Cloud Security” and Bronze for “Most Innovative Security Service of the Year.”

The prestigious Global Excellence Awards recognized ShiftLeft for having advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security.

ShiftLeft delivers the industry’s first fully automated “Security-a-a-Service” solution that understands the security needs of each version of each application, and creates custom security profiles to protect them. ShiftLeft builds custom profiles by automatically extracting applications’ unique Security DNA, rather than reacting to known threats, such as CVEs. With ShiftLeft, development organizations can now secure their cloud applications as part of their continuous integration pipeline, rather than merely reacting to threats discovered in production.

“Among the industry accolades that ShiftLeft has received, winning, not just one, but three awards from as prestigious a publication as Info Security Products Guide, stands out as a tremendous honor,” said Manish Gupta, ShiftLeft CEO and co-founder. “We think this is further validation that the software development life cycle requires drastically new security thinking and, that ShiftLeft’s continuous approach, where runtime and development cycles both inform and improve each other, is best one for modern continuous integration/continous deployment (CI/CD) environments.”

In addition to securing known and unknown vulnerabilities, with ShiftLeft, DevOps and Security teams can track data compliance for PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR for every release; for example, identifying violations such as when critical data is inadvertently pushed to 3rd party logs or code repositories. Teams can leverage ShiftLeft’s automated data classification policies, or define custom dictionaries that suit their business requirements and development practices, to track the flow of sensitive data into, throughout and out of their infrastructure.
