Jscrambler Recognized as a Sample Vendor in 2022 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security


Listed among Sample Vendors in the Web App Client-Side Protection category

PORTO, Portugal, Aug. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jscrambler, a leader in client-side web security, today announced its inclusion in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2022. The report recognizes Jscrambler as a Sample Vendor in the Web App Client-Side Protection category. The Hype Cycle assists cybersecurity and IT decision-makers by examining how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a strong source of insight to manage its deployment within an organization’s specific business goals.

According to Gartner, Web app client-side protection is defined as a tool that “defends against application-level attacks that initiate on the client side of a web application, rather than on the server side.” When reflecting on the business impact, Gartner says “companies in financial services, ticketing, and online retail have turned to client-side security to protect their applications from fraudulent scripts that steal their customers’ payment information.”1

Jscrambler’s Webpage Integrity solution provides full visibility into client-side behaviors, detecting and mitigating a wide array of threats including supply chain attacks like e-commerce skimming, also known as Magecart or form-jacking. Threat actors can exploit a myriad of entry points to inject malicious script into a company’s website, whether through the organization’s own servers or third-party JavaScript loaded into consumer browsers. Once they gain access to consumer payment information or Personal Identifiable Information (PII) there are significant consequences. According to IBM, the average cost of a data breach is $4.35 million. Client-side web application security and third-party risk cannot be overlooked.

Through its agentless and cross-platform solution, Jscrambler’s client-side security also monitors and defends against:

  • MitB Trojans, bots, zero-day threats & APT (Advanced Persistent Threats)

  • Customer Journey Hijacking

  • Data-Loss Prevention (Credentials, Private Data, Credit Card Information)

“We’re pleased to be identified as a Sample Vendor in this Gartner Hype Cycle during what we consider a critical moment for web app client-side protection,” said Rui Ribeiro, Jscrambler’s CEO. “Client-side threats are pervasive, and they are increasing in frequency as businesses become more reliant on e-commerce and other online services in their day-to-day operations. We believe Gartner’s recognition in the Hype Cycle reaffirms our mission to deliver holistic, real-time, client-side application security to enterprises.”
