We’re proud to share the news of our recent Stevie award. Avi won a bronze medal at the 2018 American Business Awards for its role in revolutionizing application performance and security with its Intelligent Web Application Firewall (iWAF).
Avi won in the category of “New Product or Service of the Year — Software and Network Security Solution.” There were more than 3,700 nominations in a wide range of categories for the 16th annual American Business Awards.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Monday, June 11.
More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
Comments by judges of Avi’s entry include:
- “Scalable per-application deployments allow each mission-critical app to get its own WAF, and central management and automation of all distributed iWAF instances are the best parts of the innovation.”
- “Avi’s Intelligent WAF (iWAF) solution and approach towards machine learning and elastic scale capabilities are able to make a difference in identifying vulnerabilities and quickly blocking.”
- “iWAF is an innovative alternative to traditional firewall appliances. The software supports higher volume and potentially improves an enterprise’s real time security.”
“The nominations submitted for The 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment.”
We're excited that iWAF was recognized for bringing better performance, ease-of-use, and visibility to web application firewalls. To learn more about iWAF, please read the Swisslos case study or visit the iWAF product page.
