December 2019 – zyProtect’s web application firewall (zyWAF) has been nominated for the Edison Award, one of the most prestigious accolades honoring excellence in new product design and innovation. This award recognizes the top go-getters, innovators and thought leaders. By touching over 7,000 companies from all over the world during each nomination season, the Edison Award is on the forefront of identifying emerging trends and market developments.

“zyWAF continues to be recognized within China and internationally as a technology leader. Applying artificial intelligence and machine-learning to protect websites places zyWAF at the forefront in website security,” says zyProtect CEO June Wang. “We are proud to have earned the Edison Award nomination.”

Founded in 2014, zyProtect is a leader in applying artificial intelligence to website protection. Using AI, zyWAF learns permitted website actions and blocks suspicious actions thus securing websites from all attacks. This software-based AI responds instantly to new threats rather than requiring a waiting time for security updates to be released as with traditional hardware or signature-based web application firewalls. Being software based, zyWAF also offers significant cost savings and less burdensome deployment.
