Contrast Security Named a Visionary in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing
Contrast Security, a leader in application security, today announced it was named by Gartner in the “Visionaries” Quadrant in the new “Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing” for 2020.
Contrast offers the industry’s only DevOps-Native AppSec Platform that uses end-to-end security instrumentation to embed security as part of the application—beginning in development and extending into production runtime. Contrast offers both security and development teams an application security (AppSec) paradigm shift powered by security instrumentation that unlocks route intelligence to observe the routes of an application while it is running. This enables Contrast to deliver continuous AppSec across the entire software development life cycle (SDLC) and to automate vulnerability identification and remediation of vulnerability fixes while virtually eliminating false positives and false negatives.

The Contrast DevOps-Native AppSec Platform is comprised of three solutions:
- Contrast Assess, which offers a comprehensive application security testing approach
- Contrast OSS for open source or software composition analysis
- Contrast Protect for runtime application self-protection
“As organizations drive digital transformation and adopt DevOps and Agile methodologies, AppSec must enable rather than inhibit business acceleration,” said Surag Patel, Chief Strategy Officer at Contrast Security. “As the only true DevOps-Native AppSec Platform, with deep integration into CI/CD [continuous integration/continuous deployment] processes and the ability to continuously assess and protect applications with utmost accuracy wherever their location, we’ve built the Contrast platform to be the foundational element of a modern application security program. Security and development teams demand an approach that transforms their CI/CD models and harnesses the opportunities of digital innovation.”
