Venice, Ca   -

May 16, 2017 – Signal Sciences, the industry’s first Web Protection Platform, announced today it has been named a Cool Vendor in Gartner Inc.’s recently published “Cool Vendors in Security for Technology and Service Providers, 2017” report. Signal Sciences is one of four vendors recognized in the report that evaluated innovative technologies and business models in security.

According to the report, “Gartner has once again identified a new crop of security Cool Vendors that are leveraging innovations. These Cool Vendors are related in the way they integrate and automate the use of security intelligence. They are also similar in how this intelligence is correlated to the detection techniques deployed by the different products and services offered. These Cool Vendors have innovative go-to-market approaches as part of a novel product offering and/or in the way the channel-to-market strategy has been built. These innovative go-to-market approaches have the opportunity to disrupt market dynamics.”

“We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in security. DevOps, agile and cloud have changed the way businesses operate. Application security now needs to be a real-time, everyday part of a modern development, operations, and security culture, not something that happens on its own timeline” said Andrew Peterson, CEO of Signal Sciences.

“With the recent launch Signal Sciences Web Protection Platform, we’re delivering a truly revolutionary solution that allows developers and operations teams to release secure software faster, helping enterprises operate more efficiently and at scale. We believe our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner is a testament to the value our new platform is bringing to customers,” added Peterson.
