Today, Contrast Security announced that we are joining in a strategic partnership and development agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT), the not-for-profit strategic investor that identifies and accelerates the development and delivery of innovative technology solutions to support the mission of the U.S. government agencies that keep our nation safe. This is exciting news for Contrast Security because it supports Application Security Testing as a key focus for IQT's partners in the U.S. intelligence community and the need for self-protecting software to reduce application vulnerabilities.

Our strategic partnership and development agreement with IQT is a major milestone for Contrast Security and will help accelerate the delivery of application security solutions. Together, we can support U.S. government agencies and ensure that the nation’s government software applications are continuously and securely protected from cyberattacks.
