Why Read This Report

As software delivery times speed up, security professionals are trying to fit repeatable security testing into shrinking software delivery life cycles. Rather than depending on a crawler to assess running applications, interactive application security testing (IAST) tools use developer- and QA tester-created automated functional testing scripts to evaluate security as part of the SDLC. This report details two emerging vendor tools in the IAST space and evaluates the benefits that customers experience using these tools. Security pros can use this report to create a business case for IAST.
