Jscrambler, the leader in client-side security, today announces its inclusion for the third consecutive year in Gartner’s® 2023 Hype Cycle for Application Security. As a Sample Vendor for Web Application Client-Side Protection, Jscrambler delivers unprecedented security for websites and payment pages, streamlining compliance, visibility, and reporting.

The Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2023 edition, states that “Client-side attacks experienced in the wild have proven to be particularly impactful as they exploit the increasingly decentralized design of modern applications. In particular, single-page applications migrate the control and software logic on the client side, where it is exposed to attacks. For example, by injecting malicious scripts into JavaScript applications, attackers have lured thousands of visitors to banking and online commerce websites to hand over their credit card information”.

As most organizations grapple with the little visibility into client-side activity available, threats or misconfigurations can go unnoticed for long periods of time, leading to data leaks and malicious activity. Jscrambler Webpage Integrity (WPI) helps organizations gain control over their client-side security by providing easy and immediate visualization of all scripts running on a webpage or application. From there, Jscrambler WPI flags all behaviors understood as undesirable or suspicious to simplify threat analysis. 


“We are pleased to see our inclusion once again in the Hype Cycle for Application Security,” said Rui Ribeiro, CEO and co-founder of Jscrambler. “ In today's web landscape, the norm is for modern web applications to include dozens of third-party scripts as part of the regular user experience app development. Integrating and relying on external code forms a web supply chain that represents a significant security blind spot that we are proactively addressing. The Gartner® Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2023 edition, recommends users: “Implement client-side security protection for critical web applications used to carry out bookings or transactions. Do so favoring approaches that monitor JavaScript and identify malicious, unsanctioned or abnormal behavior.”

Jscrambler WPI provides in-depth visibility over all code running on a website, both first and third-party while providing critical insights into the third-party code being utilized. By listing all vendors and scripts that touch sensitive data, providing any threats or risks associated with these vendors, and listing all sensitive data that has been exposed, businesses gain the protection of sensitive user data, situational awareness for informed threat mitigation, and an overall reduction in dwell and response time.
