protect web and mobile applications from threats.

Application Security

Identifying every possible gap in web and mobile applications requires advanced solutions. As applications grow, new functions added, changes made - the opportunity for new security gaps increase. 

To protect against security vulnerabilities in applications organizations need a comprehensive testing approach - to test the entire portfolio and verify security compliance. This has to happen early, and continuously to prevent against the threat of new attacks. In most companies, attacks occur at the application layer.

In addition to internal application security testing tools, it's useful to have 3rd party penetration tests and security assessments done regularly.

Protect against attacks that exploit gaps in your application security.

Application Security Testing includes static, dynamic, and interactive technology, as well as software composition analysis. The leaders in AST support enterprise DevOps initiatives.
1. Synopsys: Recognized as a leader by multiple independent analyst firms, IBM QRadar is powered by the IBM Sense Analytics Engine. QRadar SIEM is a highly scalable enterprise solution designed to capture real-time log event and network flow data, and apply advanced analytics to reveal the footprints of would-be attackers.
2. Checkmarx: has a strong reputation for its SAST solutions that support a broad variety of programming languages and frameworks, scalability and quick turnaround times via incremental and parallel tests. And with their acquisition and integration of Codebashing, Checkmarx is able to deliver innovative, gamified training modules as an in-workflow developer education platform for secure coding training.
3. HCL AppScan: enables you to safeguard apps with static and dynamic security testing throughout the entire application lifecycle. Using AppScan can enhance web and mobile application security, improve application security program management and strengthen regulatory compliance.

What the Analysts are Saying

HCL AppScan
“HCL offers good support for mobile application testing, leveraging its SAST, DAST, SCA and IAST components, as well as behavioral analysis.”
Gartner Magic Quadrant for AST, April 2020
Synopsys
"The Synopsys suite is a relatively easy entry point for organizations that may be just starting to take a developer-centric approach to security, as well as more advanced organizations that find integrating and managing a set of point solutions to be too time-consuming."
Gartner Magic Quadrant for AST, April 2020
Checkmarx
"The vendor’s portfolio competes well for various use cases, including DevSecOps, cloud-native development and more traditional development approaches where SAST is a central requirement."
