The vendor comparison report on application security is based on the Analyst's DIVE methodology that covers a detailed study of the major players offering application security solutions. The 15 key vendors in the application security market were analyzed on the basis of their product offerings, support services, and business strategies. The vendors were shortlisted based on their solution capabilities, technology innovations, industry coverage, viability, breadth of product offerings, global reach, partner ecosystem, new product launches, and acquisitions.

The report would help the stakeholders, such as application security vendors, security testing service providers, cybersecurity solution vendors, cybersecurity consulting firms, system integrators, value-added resellers, and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) in understanding the capabilities of the major players in the application security market.

The application security market is defined as the set of security testing products and services used to find and remediate vulnerabilities in enterprise applications. The application security testing products are basically categorized into Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), and Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST). These various security testing products make use of or complement other application security products, such as software composition analysis, Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP), website discovery, and Web Application Firewall (WAF). The application security testing solutions are highly recommended to be incorporated into the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) to remediate application vulnerabilities in the earlier phase of the application development. This allows great reduction in the security costs of applications through their complete lifecycle.

Application security protects web and mobile-based applications from vulnerabilities via various security testing procedures throughout the application development lifecycle. This involves the measures taken throughout the application code’s lifecycle to identify the security gaps and flaws to protect applications from cybercriminals and malicious attacks. The security testing techniques for securing business critical applications include Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), and Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST).

As the threat landscape is continuously evolving, organizations are struggling to address the sophisticated and advanced threats. Security vulnerabilities hidden within an application remain undetected during the development and deployment process. This weakness can be easily targeted by hackers and exploited to leak private data or cause disruption in the business processes. An application security solution ensures the protection of critical applications from such exploits and vulnerabilities and is concerned with the business risks. This ensures adherence to compliance requirements by safeguarding applications that support business operations.

The major factors driving the growth of the application security market are the rising security breaches targeting business applications and stringent compliance and regulatory requirement for application security. Furthermore, due to the rise in the demand for Software as a Service (SaaS)-based application security solutions, the application security market finds huge opportunity to grow in the next five years. The biggest challenge for organizations will be to address the high cost of innovation for application security solutions due to budget constraints as well as lack of application security expertise.

The report on vendor comparison in application security based on the analysts DIVE methodology reviews major players that offer application security solutions and outlines the findings and analysis on the basis of two broad categories: product offerings and business strategies. Each category carries various criteria, based on which the vendors are evaluated. The criteria are provided below:

Vendor Comparison in Application Security

Based on the extensive secondary and primary research, key information about the vendors’ product offerings and business strategies was gathered. After the completion of data gathering and verification process, the scores and weightage for shortlisted vendors against each parameter were finalized. A comparison scorecard was prepared after evaluating all the vendors, and each vendor was placed in the Analyst DIVE matrix on the basis of their product offering and business strategy scores.

This report is instrumental in helping the stakeholders, such as application security vendors, cybersecurity vendors, network solution providers, security testing service providers, consulting firms, system integrators, value-added resellers, and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to understand the capabilities of the major players in the application security market.

The report covers the comprehensive study of key application security vendors, including Acunetix, Checkmarx Ltd., Contrast Security, Fasoo, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), High-Tech Bridge, International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation, Pradeo, Qualys, Inc., Rapid7, Inc., SiteLock, Synopsys, Inc., Veracode, Inc.
