Contrast Assess

Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) Solution

A New Kind of Security Designed for the Way Software Is Created.

Contrast Security Review: CSO Magazine – "One of the most elegant solutions out there for application security."

Businesses can focus on what matters to them, remaining
highly agile, without putting the organization at risk.

Contrast Assess is a revolutionary application security testing solution that infuses software with vulnerability assessment capabilities so that
security flaws are automatically identified.

Identify Vulnerabilities at DevOps Speed

Identify Vulnerabilities at DevOps Speed

Contrast Assess delivers security results as fast as code changes. Because Contrast agents monitor code and report from inside the app, developers can finally find and fix vulnerabilities without requiring security experts. That frees up security teams to focus on providing governance.

Obtain the Most Accurate Results

Obtain the Most Accurate Results

Contrast Assess deploys an intelligent agent that instruments the application with smart sensors. The code is analyzed in real time from within the application. Instrumentation minimizes the false positives that slow down developers and security teams.

Continuous Coverage Across Your Portfolio

Continuous Coverage Across Your Portfolio

Contrast Assess delivers vulnerability assessment across an entire application portfolio. Results are delivered continuously so development teams can be agile – confidently releasing software as fast as they want, knowing it is secure.

Automatic Risk Detection in Code Libraries

Automatic Risk Detection in Code Libraries

Did you know that as much as 80% of software code comes from open source and third-party libraries? Contrast automatically discovers third-party libraries, triggering alerts to known risks. Then Contrast analyses libraries to discover new risks, and provides critical versioning and usage information to help development teams remediate risks.


Learn how instrumentation
works from the inside out.

Discover how Contrast Assess works by deploying an intelligent agent that instruments the application with smart sensors to analyze code in real-time from within the application. In this paper learn how instrumentation works to find vulnerabilities, insecure libraries, and how it compares to other security testing methodologies.

What You Get with Contrast Assess

Contrast Security is the most accurate, fastest and scalable application security solution in the market.



Unlike legacy application security testing solutions, Contrast Assess produces accurate results without dependence on application security experts. Accuracy comes from Contrast's patented Deep Security Instrumentation technology, which integrates the most effective elements of Interactive (IAST), Static (SAST), and Dynamic (DAST) application security testing technology, software composition analysis (SCA), and configuration analysis, and delivers them directly to applications.


Contrast Assess produces a continuous stream of accurate vulnerability information whenever and wherever software is run. Development, QA and Security teams get results as they develop and test software, enabling them to find and fix security flaws early in the software lifecycle, when they are easiest and cheapest to remediate.


Contrast Assess integrates seamlessly into the software lifecycle and the toolsets that development and operations teams are already using. This includes native integration with ChatOps, ticketing systems and CI/CD tools, and a RESTful API. This seamless integration makes Contrast Assess a perfect fit with modern software development techniques, including Agile, DevOps, containers, microservices, APIs, cloud, etc.


Contrast Assess scales because it instruments application security into each application, delivering vulnerability assessment across an entire application portfolio. Every running application continuously produces results in parallel. This model is very different from legacy approaches which require application security experts – a human element that adds an extra step and does not scale.

Here’s what our customers are saying

"When we instrumented applications at the UK's largest Government Department with Contrast Assess, it was like handing our project teams an incredibly powerful debugging agent containing the sum total of application security knowledge.”

Declan O'Riordan
Security Testing Manager, Testing IT Ltd.
"I was very surprised by the ease of deploying Contrast Assess. Simply running the application with the Contrast agent got things up and running. The agent can be turned on and off by a click of a button, and provide visibility to anybody in the chain.”

Chris Christensen
Application Security Manager, Fortune 500 Online Retail Company
