Build38 recognized in Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security 2022 for the third consecutive year

Build38 is proud to announce that we have been recognized as a Sample Vendor for the third consecutive year in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security 2022 report.

As per the Gartner report, Application Shielding refers to “protection capabilities that are implemented directly within the application, rather than in-line or on the hosting system, to prevent and detect attacks such as tampering and reverse engineering. Application Shielding can be used for any type of application, but there is currently a particular focus on mobile apps”. More about the importance of Application Shielding is explained throughout the report, as well as the business impacts it has and the obstacles that are faced in its development. Gartner recommends the adoption of Application Shielding in finance organizations, online retail, e-commerce, insurance or healthcare industry as a priority and includes Build38 as one of the Sample Vendors of this service. To us, this recognition is an acknowledgment of the high-end protection capabilities of our Application Shielding solution in comparison to a large group of global vendors.
