2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing


Micro Focus maintains a Leader position in the Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST) for its Fortify offering based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Leaders should provide mature, reputable SAST, DAST, IAST, and SCA techniques in their solutions. Leaders also should provide organizations with AST-as-a-service delivery models for testing, or with a choice of a tool and AST as a service, and an enterprise-class reporting framework supporting multiple users, groups and roles, ideally via a single management console. Leaders should be able to support the testing of mobile applications.
