SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- tCell, the leader in web application security, has been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner, Inc., the world's leading research and advisory company. The Gartner Cool Vendors in Applications and Data Security 2018 report highlights "new technologies that enable the continuous business revolution, rather than retaining the gate-driven, blocking models of traditional security."
Gartner recognized tCell as a Cool Vendor for its next-generation cloud web application firewall (WAF). tCell wraps non-intrusive protection into apps as they are deployed in the cloud, empowering them to self-protect. In contrast to other tools, tCell implements Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) with virtually zero impact on enterprise applications with high-traffic volume and visibility into client-side attacks with browser instrumentation.
"Web applications are the cornerstone of most organizations. But, sadly, web application security measures are often overlooked and underutilized, leaving applications vulnerable to attacks," said Michael Feiertag, CEO of tCell. "We founded tCell to help security and DevOps teams quickly and easily assess the risks of the modern enterprise application attack surface. We're honored that Gartner recognized tCell as a solution to the growing application security problem, and we're committed to arming security teams with the data they need to defend against attacks as they happen."
