Examine source code (at rest) to detect and report weaknesses that can lead to security vulnerabilities.
Detect conditions that indicate a security vulnerability in an application in its running state.
IAST tools use a combination of static and dynamic analysis techniques.
They can test whether known vulnerabilities in code are actually exploitable in the running application.
MAST Tools are a blend of static, dynamic, and forensics analysis.
AST solutions are adapting to Agile and DevOps methodologies by integrating deeply into the SDLC, addressing newer and more complex applications, incorporating machine-learning into their offerings to filter out false positives, and providing software composition analysis of third party and open source code.
Hacker-powered security is undergoing rapid expansion, not just among the tech fast movers, but among government, e-commerce, retail, and gaming companies.
Application Security Testing is one of the fastest growing markets in Cybersecurity, with a projected 14% compound annual growth rate through 2020.
