ESG Security Leadership Study – Trends in Application Security

Security Leadership Study – Trends in Application Security


Application security testing methods like pentesting have become best practice for vulnerability assessment over the past two decades, but in recent years we’ve seen this method fall short.

While the application development process is speeding up with techniques like agile becoming the norm, the number of data breaches continue to rise in severity and frequency. Running pen tests and static scans alone are no longer sufficient for effective risk reduction in today’s application development environment.

In 2019, CISOs are looking to invest in application security tools that can effectively scale in the same continuous nature as the development process. Security leaders are pushed to keep pace with the fast and disruptive nature of today’s business cycles, with flexible, continuous, contextual and reportable processes, in order to remain competitive.
