SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2012) - WhiteHat Security, the Web security company, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. WhiteHat Security was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
WhiteHat Security and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on April 4th, 2012, at Hewlett-Packard's Executive Briefing Center in Cupertino, CA.
This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies -- from small businesses to large enterprises -- create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
"Digital information has expanded exponentially during the past year. As the emergence of robust, innovative apps needed to manage this information continues, a complex world of interconnected business intelligence and ideas is being created at a new macro level," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's OnDemand 100 winners are continuing to use disruptive technology and ideas to merge valuable legacy data and systems with new, vital streams of information. The results are being deployed in the cloud by any number of SaaS products and services, changing the way all businesses coexist. The OnDemand 100 continues to represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
"As the online threat landscape continues to outpace legacy security technologies, businesses are increasingly looking to secure their own applications and prevent breaches at the source rather than react to them," said Stephanie Fohn, chief executive officer, WhiteHat Security. "Being named an OnDemand Top 100 company for the third consecutive time is a wonderful accolade for us as it supports that we are addressing the true security needs of today's market. With the Web application security industry becoming the focal point for online business security, we are excited for our future innovations."
WhiteHat Security and WhiteHat Sentinel, the company's flagship SaaS-based web security platform, have seen marked growth over the past year, with thousands of new websites coming under management across nearly all industries. As security best-practices become more top of mind for businesses in the face of agile threats, WhiteHat continues to innovate, with the launch of a Static Analysis Software Testing (SAST) line coming in mid-2012. Combined with expert website security analysis from WhiteHat's industry-exclusive Threat Research Center, businesses will have fully-integrated, 24/7 coverage for applications throughout the software development lifecycle.
