MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – July 3, 2014 – Contrast Security, a pioneer in application security solutions, today announced Gartner, Inc. has positioned it in the Visionaries quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing. 

According to the Gartner Magic Quadrant report, "Visionaries in the Magic Quadrant are those that are advancing the emergence of fast and accurate security testing, suitable for use in development where minimal security expertise is present and accurate results are needed quickly (for example, to support agile development and DevOps development models). Delivering IAST alone isn't enough to be a Visionary, but we weigh it heavily along with other factors."*

"We are proud to be recognized as a Visionary by Gartner," said Bruce Fram, CEO, Contrast Security. "It is further proof and validation that we are delivering the application security solution enterprises need today.  The organizations we talk to can only analyze only a fraction of their application portfolio with current products and that leaves them vulnerable to the type of application focused attacks that Verizon's 2014 Data Breach Investigation Report says accounts for 35% of all data breaches."

"These breaches are preventable; organizations just need to be empowered with new technologies that make finding security issues easy and efficient," Fram continued.
