Why securing client-side code is important for businesses
Because of the ubiquity of client-side code in modern web applications, security coverage is a growing concern for DevSecOps organizations that want to make sure their application stack is secure, from client-side all the way to server-side code.
How Contrast helps front-end and full-stack developers deliver secure code
Contrast continues to outpace competing SAST tools in both speed and accuracy
Historically, SAST scanners have had a rough time adapting to modern development pipelines. This is largely due to the fact that they were designed to act as a security gate within waterfall environments. In an attempt to find every conceivable vulnerability, many SAST tools today are still governed by the same antiquated SAST rules and scanning algorithms from 20 years ago. The end result is usually a list of false positives that can number in the hundreds, if not thousands — not a great way to promote developer adoption.
