The application security industry continues to evolve at pace as organizations recognize that software security risks need to balance with business imperatives that accelerate the speed of digital innovation. Fortify’s Software Security Research team finds that a vast majority of web of applications have at least one critical or high-severity issue (79% in our latest AppSec Risk Report). Combine this with the known vulnerabilities within open-source components, additional attack surfaces associated with the move to the cloud, and more, and it is clear that having an application security partner you can trust is critical for success.
The trends we’ve discussed here fit into a modern development framework where security is developer-driven and focused on actionable results that enable digital innovation.
We’d love to hear from you. Which of these trends interests you the most? Are there other AppSec innovations that you’re watching closely?
