Gartner Peer Insights ‘Vendor Spectrum’
Consideration of Application Security Testing
Gartner Peer Insights “Vendor Spectrum” is a new Gartner Peer Insights based document that offers enterprise IT buyers a view of the provider landscape in the market, based on who end-user reviewers considered and selected. Gartner defines the application security testing (AST) market as the buyers and sellers of products and services designed to analyze and test applications for security vulnerabilities. Gartner identifies four main styles of AST: (1) Static AST (SAST), (2) Dynamic AST (DAST), (3) Interactive AST (IAST), and (4) Mobile AST. The above technology approaches can be delivered as a tool or a subscription service. Many vendors offer both options to reflect enterprise requirements for a product and service. Micro Focus has been named to the Balanced Group of application security providers, which is for providers who are able to both scale and specialize to narrow use cases.
