BELLEVUE, Wash., August 20, 2019 – Polyverse Corporation ("Polyverse") today announced that its technology has been recognized as the Best Application Security Solution by the 2019 Tech Ascension Awards.
Polyverse’s innovative technology creates unprecedented resilience against cyberattacks by making the software on every computer unique and diverse – this diversity thwarts cyberattacks, much like biological diversity defends against disease. Polyverse provides immunity to memory-based attacks by scrambling software’s unique location instructions and randomizing the memory layout, resulting in a constantly changing attack surface that is extraordinarily difficult to penetrate all while maintaining the performance of the operating system. By increasing the complexity and cost for attackers, Polyverse helps government and enterprise organizations level the playing field of cyber-attacks.
The Tech Ascension Awards recognized the very best innovations in cybersecurity for 2019. In the inaugural year of the Tech Ascension Awards, over 50 cutting-edge companies submitted, and only a handful were selected that stood above the rest. The Tech Ascension awards judged applicants based on technology innovation and uniqueness, market research (analyst reports, media coverage, customer case studies), hard performance stats, and competitive differentiators. The class-leading vendors that received recognition from the Tech Ascension Awards proved their technology solves critical industry challenges and produces invaluable business outcomes for their customers.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as the Best Application Security Solution by the 2019 Tech Ascension Awards,” said Alexander Gounares, Co-founder and CEO of Polyverse. “This award stands as a testament to our talented team and our revolutionary product, which has helped enterprises and organizations protect against the most common and severe cyber-attacks without impacting system performance.”
“Polyverse is recognized for creating unprecedented resilience against cyberattacks by making the software on every computer unique and diverse. Polyverse’s ability to eliminate zero days, employ moving target defense, and eliminate code-injection with polyscripting makes the company a leader in preventative cybersecurity. Polyverse makes each operating system instance unique at a memory and stack level, which means the attacker’s investment in hacking the first operating system cannot be applied to the next. This technology breaks the economic model of malicious hacking at its core,” said David Campbell, CEO, Tech Ascension Awards.
