Why Read This Report

Application releases are getting faster, especially as developers make use of DevOps methodologies to automate releases. Security pros can support and even drive these changes using continuous prerelease application security testing tools. SAST, DAST, and MAST all have their unique testing sweet spots, and all are essential to a comprehensive testing strategy; however, IAST is emerging to eventually replace DAST. This report will help security pros evaluate application security testing tools and address their firms' criteria for these faster releases.
