As the speed and complexity of development increases and the occurrence of high-impact application security breaches becomes more frequent, security and development teams are looking to integrate and automate effective application security testing (AST) as part of their software development activities.
According to the authors of the report, "Modern application design, the shift to the cloud and the accelerating adoption of DevSecOps are expanding the scope of the AST market. Security and risk management leaders can meet tighter deadlines and test more complex applications by integrating and automating AST in the software life cycle."
"As recent highly publicized vulnerabilities and software supply chain attacks have shown, application security is both critical and complex," said Jason Schmitt, general manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. "To effectively mitigate risks in modern applications and their supply chains, organizations need to employ multiple security testing solutions that are fast, scalable, easy to use and seamlessly integrated into the SDLC. Synopsys has made significant investments over the past year to address these needs, including the acquisition of WhiteHat Security and the release of new cloud-native SAST and SCA services on the Polaris Software Integrity Platform."
"We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as a Leader in Application Security Testing for the seventh consecutive year," Schmitt added. "We believe this acknowledges our vision and ability to execute against evolving market requirements."
