“This recognition by Cyber Defense Magazine energizes our mission to lead the next wave of cybersecurity solutions. These awards symbolize our dedication to continue protecting digital landscapes globally,” said Nick Mo, the award-winning CEO and Co-founder of Ridge Security Technology.

“Ridge Security Technology embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats today, providing cost-effective solutions, and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risks and stay one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

As a promising startup, Ridge Security continuously innovates. At the RSA Conference 2024, the company introduced groundbreaking graybox testing capabilities, including a specialized scenario for Windows Authentication Testing. This new ‘Windows Authenticated Penetration’ scenario utilizes provided user credentials to access Windows systems and test for vulnerabilities such as Local Privilege Escalation. This enhancement not only helps organizations understand potential insider threats but also complements their existing blackbox testing capabilities to provide a comprehensive assessment of security postures.

RidgeBot’s AI-powered security validation supports multiple use cases, including vulnerability validation, automated pentest, DevSecOps, compliance testing and custom attack simulations. The solution helps CISOs stay focus on the frontier defense and effectively reduce business risks.
