Contrast Security continues to be recognized as the only "Visionary" in Gartner's 2019 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing. We believe being acknowledged as the only "Visionary" validates Contrast's ability to displace traditional static and dynamic application security testing tools with our modern software solutions. Read the New 2019 Gartner Report to learn why Contrast Security earned this recognition.
Contrast Assess is an Application Security Testing solution that transforms an organization's ability to secure software by making applications self-protecting. This whitepaper will cover how Contrast Assess' unique architecture and how it implements Interactive Application Security Testing to make software capable of assessing itself continuously for vulnerabilities while providing the highest accuracy, efficiency, and coverage.
John Pescatore, Director of Emerging Security Trends at SANS Institute, interviews Liberty Mutual on their selection and deployment of Contrast Security. The Application Security team was looking to identify application security tools and processes that are more accurate and faster, as well as to integrate into Agile development frameworks and CI/CD.
This report highlights analytics gathered from within 1,857 running applications, including several thousand different open source libraries, frameworks, and modules. Read this whitepaper to get the full report on all analysis results gathered by Contrast Labs on running applications and APIs using Contrast's security analysis and protection platform.
Read this whitepaper to review why today's application security leaves enterprises wide open to attacks. And even worse? The adoption of these tools has caused tensions within businesses and in some cases, cultivated a false sense of security. A new approach for securing applications will be introduced to provide the speed, visibility, and accuracy across the entire application portfolio while delivering all layers of defense organizations need.
We reject the old paradigm of periodic and serial scanning, hacking, and patching, which has proven expensive and ineffective. Instead, Continuous Application Security (CAS) relies on security instrumentation in every application to provide security visibility, assessment, and protection in real-time and in parallel across the entire application portfolio.
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. Read this solution brief to learn how Contrast Security empowers your organization to work rapidly while weaving security seamlessly into your OSS to successfully reduce software vulnerabilities and associated risks.
The advent of ASM provides IT Operations and Security teams unprecedented visibility and control over the security of the application layer. Operations teams already use similar tools for monitoring performance of the running application: Application Performance Management (APM) solutions such as AppDynamics, Dynatrace or New Relic. These telemetry products use an agent-based technology to instrument the running application and measure performance — just like Contrast does for security!
Ultimately, Contrast Protect was originally built to be a "WAF killer" however, as we started making conversations with organizations, they stated that WAF was a worthwhile investment and they do not plan on getting rid of it. For this reason, we instead leveraged our RASP technology to help aid known limitations of WAF for a better, more accurate way to protect web applications in production.
