2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Application Security Testing

Contrast Security recognized as a Visionary by Gartner in Application Security Testing


Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing

We believe the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Application Security Testing validates that the Contrast Secure Code Platform is a good fit for organizations needing accurate, continuous application security testing solutions. 

The AST (Application Security Testing) market must support developer and security teams as they meet ever-increasing enterprise demands and prevent constant application security threats. As the only unified code security platform on the market, Contrast leverages the power of instrumentation to embed security within the application’s runtime. This solves the challenges that legacy application security tools present in modern software environments, all with low overhead.

In particular, Contrast’s IAST (Interactive Application Security Testing) and RASP (Runtime Application Self-Protection) solutions stand out in the market. 

  • Contrast Assess (IAST): Development teams can secure every line of code with Contrast's IAST solution that continuously detects and prioritizes vulnerabilities and guides them on how to eliminate risks. All with industry leading accuracy, efficiency, scalability, and coverage.
  • Contrast Protect (RASP): Contrast Protect with RASP is production application and API protection that blocks attacks and reduces false positives, helping developer teams prioritize vulnerability backlogs.
