Gartner Report: 2021 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing 

Read the latest Gartner “Magic Quadrant Application Security Testing” report to find out why Contrast Security was named a Challenger. We believe a few of the highlighting points include:

  • A good choice for organizations looking to insert automated, continuous security testing that is developer-centric without requiring security expertise
  • Automatically performs SCA within the AST offering for testing on custom and third-party applications.
  • Provides a comprehensive view of code, dependencies, vulnerability prioritization, and project security status in an easy-to-use, intuitive platform
  • Expanded / added cloud-native coverage and correlates context within serverless cloud function code to determine permissions versus privilege.
  • Competes on nearly every IAST shortlist Gartner sees.
  • One of the broadest language coverages for AST, SCA, and RASP: Java, .NET Framework, .NET Core, Node.js, Ruby, Python and Go
