MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), today announced it has been named by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the "Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing" for the fourth consecutive year.1 In the report, Gartner evaluated 11 application security testing vendors based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Synopsys was positioned highest for ability to execute and the furthest to the right for completeness of vision for the second year in a row.
According to the authors of the report, "Gartner has observed the major driver in the evolution of the AST market is the need to support enterprise DevOps initiatives. Customers require offerings that provide high-assurance, high-value findings while not unnecessarily slowing down development efforts. Clients expect offerings to fit earlier in the development process, with testing often driven by developers rather than security specialists. As a result, this market evaluation focuses more heavily on the buyer's needs when it comes to supporting rapid and accurate testing capable of being integrated in an increasingly automated fashion throughout the software development life cycle."
"There is no silver bullet when it comes to protecting your applications from attack, which is why we've built a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that address each aspect of application security risk at every stage in the development process," said Simon King, vice president of solutions at the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. "At the same time, we've worked intensively to ensure that our solutions enable organizations that are embracing automation and rapid, iterative development approaches, with a strong emphasis on making developers more productive. We believe Gartner's continued recognition of Synopsys as a Leader in application security testing validates our strategy and ability to address the evolving needs of the market."
