We've been using Contrast IAST tool for two years now. We've been very pleased with the results. Contrast Security provides you with a continuous real-time scanning of your web applications with fast and accurate results. The tool has really low ratio of false positives compared to the traditional DAST and SAST tools.
For the full review:

  • Easy, fast to deploy and use, more accurate, visuals and details have never been so easy!
    • Senior International IT Application in the Services Industry

    While the company is small and growing and you experience some of those pains, they have been very responsive to our needs and customer friendly. We are so glad to have found them as their unique technology and solution has saved us a lot of money as we improved the security of our applications and enabled faster development and deployments. 
    For the full review:

  • Contrast provides highly accurate & confirmed vulnerabilities without pen-testing
    • Head of Application Security in the Healthcare Industry 

Contrast provides amazing results - confirmed security vulnerabilities with near zero false positives. This is a massive upgrade on their competitors we've used in the past, who tend to provide us a cornucopia of "possible" findings, most of which are false positives and/or overly categorized as critical. We spend more time triaging the issues that we do fixing them.
