IAST is designed for software development, where accurate results are needed quickly, but security expertise is scarce. According to Gartner "The goal of IAST (Interactive Application Security Testing) is fast and accurate security testing that is suitable for use in development, where minimal security expertise is present and accurate results are needed quickly.” Read how Contrast Assess, our IAST solution, deploys an intelligent agent that instruments the application with smart sensors to analyze code in real-time from within the application.
Open Source Software (OSS) continues to grow in popularity because of its ability to help organizations accelerate the release and delivery of software.
