Contrast Security is honored with a Silver Stevie® Award in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year – Up to 100 Employees category because of its innovative security technology that enables software applications to protect themselves against cyberattacks, heralding the new era of self-protecting software. Contrast's patented deep security instrumentation is the breakthrough technology that enables highly accurate assessment and always-on protection of an entire application portfolio, without disruptive scanning or expensive security experts. Only Contrast has sensors that work actively inside applications to uncover vulnerabilities, prevent data breaches, and secure the entire enterprise from development, to operations, to production
Contrast Assess is honored with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the New Product or Service of the Year – Software – DevOps Solution category because of its use of deep security instrumentation to analyze code in real time from within the application. Contrast produces accurate results, continuously, which is ideal for DevOps style environments, transparent to developers and security specialists, and does not require training or experts. Contrast works everywhere software is developed and run: on-premises, in the cloud and containers, and even elastic and hybrid environments.
Contrast Assess covers more code, produces more accurate results and verifies a broader range of security rules than either Static Application Security Testing (SAST) or Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) tools. In fact, Contrast Assess delivers all the analysis capabilities and benefits of IAST (Interactive Application Security Testing), SAST, DAST, SCA (Software Composition Analysis) and more, combined into a single, integrated and continuous application security platform.
