Gartner Defines New Application Security Testing Orchestration Market and Mentions Code Dx

Gartner’s 2017 Hype Cycle for Application Security also Mentions Code Dx in Application Vulnerability Correlation Category

 

Code Dx, Inc., provider of an award-winning application security solution that automates and accelerates the discovery, prioritization and management of software vulnerabilities, was recognized by Gartner in its Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2017 report published July 28, 2017. Code Dx was identified by Gartner analysts as a sample vendor in its new category for Application Security Testing Orchestration (ASTO), and also in the Application Vulnerability Correlation (AVC) category.

According to Gartner, “Application security testing orchestration (ASTO) integrates security tooling across a software development life cycle (SDLC), typically as part of DevSecOps initiatives.” As stated in the report, “Application vulnerability correlation (AVC) tools are workflow and process management tools that streamline software development application vulnerability testing and remediation. They incorporate findings from various security-testing data sources (static and dynamic application security testing, software composition analysis, penetration testing, and code reviews) into a centralized tool. AVC tools correlate vulnerability findings to centralize data, perform analysis, prioritize remediation and coordinate application security activities.”

“Gartner is a respected thought leader in information technology, known for forecasting and assessing the potential impact of new security markets. We feel their mention of Code Dx, Inc. in two on-the-rise markets validates the direction we are taking Code Dx,” said Anita D’Amico, Ph.D., CEO of Code Dx. “As the Application Security Testing (AST) market continues to evolve and mature, comprehensive solutions that automate correlation and vulnerability management are becoming a necessity. These solutions not only speed the testing process and enable teams to focus on developing software, they also provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing the code being developed is secure. We believe Gartner clearly understands the current AST challenges and the need for tools that go beyond just testing code.”

In the report, Gartner discusses the business impact of ASTO solutions stating that they “aid security, development and operations teams in coordinating the many security tests that should be performed on code. As such, these solutions can be a significant enabler in implementing DevSecOps initiatives, and they promise substantial benefits to the organization in terms of more consistent testing and smoother operations. To the extent individual solutions provide them, additional capabilities – such as the ability to correlate, analyze, and assess defects and vulnerabilities – help improve the speed and effectiveness of vulnerability remediation efforts.”
