Contrast Scan is a code scanning tool built from the ground up to make security testing as routine as a code commit while focusing on the most imperative vulnerabilities to deliver fast, accurate and actionable results.
Purpose-Built for Native Developer Pipelines
Built from the ground up to run in any modern pipeline. Code scans can be initiated through a command-line (CLI) option, build automation (e.g., Maven, Gradle, GitHub Action), through a simple API call or a secure code upload.
Lightning Speed Without Sacrificing Accuracy
Expedited time to value for security and development teams when accounting for setup, code scan, and triage time. Speed without compromising accuracy allows scans to actually be run and results to be actioned without breaking the CI/CD pipeline.
Focus on What Gets You Hacked
With an exploitability-focused detection algorithm, achieve the most accurate static analysis solution based on OWASP Benchmark scores. This allows organizations to focus limited staff resources on the critical vulnerabilities that matter.
Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is the most common tool used in Development to secure Cloud-Native Applications, according to Survey Analysis: Enabling Cloud-Native DevSecOps by Gartner™

Contrast Scan for Log4j
Contrast Scan not only can scan your code for log injections associated with Log4j exploits, it can find the specific vulnerable class in Log4J 1.x versions.
Risk-Based Analysis Engine
Deliver focused results and expedite time-to-results
A breakthrough code scanning algorithm powers the static analysis engine in Contrast Scan, enabling teams to pinpoint exploitable vulnerabilities while ignoring those that pose no risk and only cause hours of needless triage. As a result, based on real-world scan results, Contrast Scan can shrink the amount of time to run scans by up to 10x.
Precision Remediation Guidance
Identify & fix faster with actionable vulnerability data
Treat security vulnerabilities as code quality defects
Plug-ins for native IDE, build, and bug tracking tools bring security results into the same workstream as any other quality bug. In addition, Contrast CI/CD integrations can enforce a security quality threshold and ensure that vulnerable or noncompliant builds are failed and not promoted to production.
