Attacks targeting the application layer are on the rise. Our 2019 Application Security Risk Report reveals the latest industry trends and insights in the application security landscape.

Standards and legislation provide incomplete security coverage:

  • 61% of applications had at least one Critical and High Issue NOT covered by OWASP Top 10.
  • This up 12% YOY, from 49% to 61%.

Open source code has blind spots:

  • Among the top movers in applications with vulnerabilities mapped to the OWASP TOP 10: A9 “Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities” had a significant 16% increase.
  • 87% of the applications tested inherit a critical severity vulnerability from referenced components—up by 22% since 2017.
