2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Application Security Testing

Contrast Security named a "Visionary" in Application Security Testing

“Modern application design 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 seamlessly integrating and automating AST in the software delivery life cycle.” - Gartner®

Contrast Security was named a “Visionary” in the 2022 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing.” Vendors are evaluated based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Differentiation is an important criterion for anyone in business—and “vision” is something that rings true especially in the technology space.

Contrast Security is the only unified security platform built to get secure code moving through the entire development pipeline and continuously protect across the complete software lifecycle.

We believe Contrast Security is a Leader by empowering:

  • Developers to secure-as-they-code
  • Security and dev teams to focus on risks that matter
  • Security teams to remove friction across the entire software development lifecycle

In addition to being named a Gartner Application Security Testing Visionary, Contrast Security was also named a 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for the 3rd year in a row for Application Security Testing.
