Top Application Security Trends
Application security continues to evolve from shifting left to shifting everywhere as we move further into a cloud-driven era. Our list for 2022 is a mix of larger trends and interesting new innovations.
As in any annual trend list, there should be few surprises. After all, most trends are a continuation of what was important just a month or year ago. At Fortify, we have a holistic AppSec vision that is based on being excellent on foundational elements. This includes broad and accurate language coverage; an integration ecosystem that allows minimum friction into the existing tools our customers use and love; and an end-to-end application security platform that takes into account that not every organization is the same.
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.
While this isn’t new, the pace of technology transformation (encompassing an explosion of APIs, microservices, IAC innovation, and cloud technology mapped to the ever-increasing demand for faster time to market) is accelerating. Organizations are continually pushing boundaries while recognizing that the speed of AST delivery can’t be traded for the depth and quality of code security analysis.
Many things on this list reflect what our customers are asking us to focus on and deliver—and most of these topics deserve more than a few paragraphs. We’d love to hear what trends or details you would have included.
Here’s our list of key application security trends for 2022.
