Waratek Supports the OWASP Foundation as a Premier Corporate Member

Bel Air, MD – October 25, 2016 – The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), a worldwide not-for-profit charitable organization focused on improving the security of software, is pleased to welcome Waratek, a pioneer in the next generation application security solutions known as Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP), as a Premier Corporate Member of OWASP.   

OWASP is an open community of over 46,000 participants dedicated to enabling organizations to conceive, develop, acquire, operate, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security.  OWASP does not endorse or recommend commercial products or services. Instead, we allow our community to remain vendor neutral with the collective wisdom of the best individual minds in application security worldwide.

Waratek, winner of the 2015 RSA Innovation Sandbox Award, is based on the belief that traditional security approaches are not enough to protect applications and customer data from today’s threats. Waratek’s solutions are based on virtualizing the runtime to provide protection against known and unknown vulnerabilities in current and legacy software.

“At a time when malicious attacks are intensifying and organizations increasingly rely on applications with known and vulnerabilities to fulfill their missions, OWASP is a vital part of defending the integrity of businesses and institutions,”  commented Waratek CEO Brian Maccaba. “We need strong DevOps and AppSec communities to ensure the safety and security of commerce.  We’re proud to help OWASP fulfill that role.”

Waratek’s support of OWASP included sponsorship of our recent OWASP AppSec USA 2016 Conference that took place in Washington,DC.  In a few weeks, all of the conference talks will be available for free on the conference site.

“OWASP receives one-third of its funding from Corporate Members and we are thrilled to have Waratek, Inc. as a Premier Corporate member,” stated Kelly Santalucia, Membership & Business Liaison of the OWASP Foundation. “Waratek’s contributions toward our AppSec USA 2016 event demonstrated strong support for our global initiatives, and we are hopeful that others will follow their lead in giving back to the community.”
