The Application Security Software offers solutions and services to protect applications, both web and mobile, from any form of cyber-attack by detecting and remediating the hidden vulnerabilities. The solution is offered in the form of three security testing techniques—Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), and Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST). The testing results can be integrated with other security systems, such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Web Application Firewall (WAF), Integrated Development Environments (IDEs), and bug tracking tools to provide an enhanced level of security to applications.

VISIONARY LEADERS

Visionary leaders in Application Security Software quadrant are the leading market players in terms of new developments such as product launches, innovative technologies, and the adoption of growth strategies. These players have a broad product offering that caters to most of the regions globally. Visionary leaders primarily focus on acquiring the leading market position through their strong financial capabilities and their well-established brand equity.

INNOVATORS

Innovators in the competitive leadership mapping are vendors that have demonstrated substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. The companies have focused on product portfolios. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business, when compared with the visionary leaders.

DYNAMIC DIFFERENTIATORS

Dynamic Differentiators have established players with very strong business strategies. However, they have a weaker product portfolio compared to the visionary leaders. They generally focus only on a specific type of technology related to the product.

EMERGING COMPANIES

Emerging companies under Application Security Software have a niche product and service offerings. Their business strategies are not as strong as that of the established vendors. The emerging vendors include the new entrants in the market, emerging in terms of product portfolio and geographic reach, and require time to gain significant traction.

Application security remains a crucial component of the IT security ecosystem to safeguard enterprise applications and data from external threats and breaches. Presently, organizations face security breaches in their email systems and web applications, which are attacked due to their mishandling of large amounts of data, resulting in financial losses, loss of customer trust, and damage to brand reputation. Hence, it has become very important for organizations to protect themselves against such attacks.
Various technology solutions such as SAST, DAST, IAST, penetration testing, Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP), and Software Composition Analysis (SCA) are used in the
application security market to assess applications for vulnerabilities. Businesses have become more application-oriented as applications are now integrated into devices and
platforms, which enable users to interact with each other as well as outside the organization. Since traditional security solutions can be easily bypassed by advanced threats and zero-day vulnerabilities, the need for application security solutions has become critical. Application security offers complete visibility into applications, users, and data running across organizations.
