HPE Recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing

Positioned as a Leader for HPE Security Fortify’s comprehensive set of AST products and services for 7th consecutive report

3 March 2017

Hewlett Packard Enterprise today announced that it has been named a Leader for the seventh consecutive report in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST).1 The report evaluated several AST products and services in the HPE Security Fortify portfolio, including Fortify on Demand, Static Code Analyzer, WebInspect, Software Security Center, DevInspect, and Application Defender.

According to Gartner, “security testing is growing faster than any other security market, as AST solutions adapt to new development methodologies and increased application complexity.”2 HPE Security Fortify offers end-to-end application security solutions with the flexibility of testing on-premises and on-demand to cover the entire software development lifecycle, which is critically important as more organizations move to DevOps deployment models.

In the report, Gartner identifies three main styles of AST: Static AST (SAST), Dynamic AST (DAST) and Interactive AST (IAST). HPE Security Fortify provides capabilities in SAST, DAST and IAST with its Static Code Analyzer (SAST) and WebInspect (DAST and IAST) products. HPE has a comprehensive set of enterprise capabilities and one of the strongest SDLC integrations that includes innovative features in this space, such as DevInspect and Security Assistant.

“The increasing speed and complexity of applications is making it more critical than ever for security and development teams to adopt effective application security solutions,” said Jason Schmitt (@raidschmitt), vice president and general manager, Fortify and ArcSight, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “HPE Security Fortify delivers the most comprehensive application security testing available for securing applications in the most complex, diverse and demanding organizations in the world. We believe this leadership position validates not only the Fortify capabilities, but is a testament to what our customers have been able to achieve in partnership with us.”

Organizations need an ongoing security testing program that includes both static code analysis and regularly scheduled dynamic scans, yet does not interfere with software innovation. HPE Security Fortify provides trusted, proven security testing and vulnerability management solutions that safeguard critical business applications, allowing developers to continue building secure software.
