Vendor Comparison in Application Security 2017: MnM DIVE Matrix

Report Code: TC 5161 Apr, 2017, by marketsandmarkets.com

[72 Pages Report] Application security is a continuously evolving security approach. As the frequency of cybercrime is rapidly increasing, organizations are compelled to adopt advanced security solutions to protect their applications, data, network, and devices. Application layer has been a new target for attackers to penetrate into an enterprises IT infrastructure or bring damage to it, which acts as a major driving factor for the application security market.

This report on vendor comparison in application security based on the MNM DIVE methodology analyzes and evaluates the key vendors in the application security market.

MarketsandMarkets defines application security as to safeguard applications from cyber threats and vulnerabilities. This involves the use of security testing techniques, such as Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), and Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) to scan the web and mobile applications for vulnerabilities throughout the application development lifecycle. With proper application security testing solutions, an organization can prevent security breaches and cut down business cost by optimizing the applications and enhancing their information security infrastructure. Lack of security expertise in enterprises is the major driving factor for the large-scale adoption of application security solutions and services. This provides great opportunities of growth for various application security solution and service providers.

Vendor Comparison in Application Security

Application security protects web and mobile-based applications from vulnerabilities via various security testing procedures throughout the application development lifecycle. This involves the measures taken throughout the application code’s lifecycle to identify the security gaps and flaws to protect applications from cybercriminals and malicious attacks. The security testing techniques for securing business critical applications include Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), and Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST). As the threat landscape is continuously evolving, organizations are struggling to address the sophisticated and advanced threats. Security vulnerabilities hidden within an application remain undetected during the development and deployment process. This weakness can be easily targeted by hackers and exploited to leak private data or cause disruption in the business processes. An application security solution ensures the protection of critical applications from such exploits and vulnerabilities and is concerned with the business risks. This ensures adherence to compliance requirements by safeguarding applications that support business operations.

The major factors driving the growth of the application security market are the rising security breaches targeting business applications and stringent compliance and regulatory requirement for application security. Furthermore, due to the rise in the demand for Software as a Service (SaaS)-based application security solutions, the application security market finds huge opportunity to grow in the next five years. The biggest challenge for organizations will be to address the high cost of innovation for application security solutions due to budget constraints as well as lack of application security expertise.
