For 25 years, the SC Awards program has recognized the people, organizations, and solutions that are forging the industry’s future and advancing the cause of safe and secure commerce and communication. 2021’s SC Awards were the most competitive yet, with a record number of entries, which all underwent a rigorous evaluation process of in-depth analysis, analyst reports and/or product reviews. Products and services recognized in the Best Emerging Technology category look to shape the future of cybersecurity by addressing fast-evolving threats in new and innovative ways.

“Events of the last year shined a bright spotlight on security gaps, which in turn provided opportunity for the vendor community,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media. “But it also serves as a litmus test, demonstrating which were nimble enough to handle increased demand, which were willing to rethink product roadmaps to serve customers. Winners of our Excellence Awards excelled despite these unprecedented challenges.”
CAST, our first-of-its kind Security as a Service, augments an organization’s security program by continuously mapping and testing their entire attack surface, enabling companies to stay ahead of emerging threats and scale their capabilities and assess and exploit more sophisticated vulnerabilities in a greater number of categories at a speed and persistence which surpasses that of real-world attackers. Acting as an extension of an organization’s security team, CAST provides prioritized, verified findings of and remediation guidance for a company’s entire external perimeter. Since launching in February 2020, CAST has been actively monitored and tested more than two million daily targets for companies whose cumulative revenue totals more than $700 billion. Several Fortune 500 companies, including multiple Fortune 10, currently use CAST to secure their attack surface. Notably, Zoom leveraged the service in 2020 to secure their platform during its exponential, pandemic-driven growth.
“With a complex, ever-changing attack surface, traditional security testing methodologies are insufficient for today’s enterprise, and they are often too expensive or time consuming, or both,” said Vincent Liu, CEO at Bishop Fox. “Our CAST service has been a game changer for so many of our customers spanning all industry sectors. CAST doesn’t just bridge the gap between people, process, and technology, it erases it, by complementing and empowering expert operators to identify and communicate the vulnerabilities that may pose a threat to their organization. We’re truly honored and thrilled to have CAST recognized by the SC Awards program; our team is actively looking ahead to how we can continue improving the world’s security posture.”
The CAST platform was also recently reviewed by SW Labs’ Adrian Sanabria as part of the April 2021 assessment of the Attack Surface Management (ASM) category and was commended for addressing several shortcomings of traditional penetration testing.
