Micro Focus Named a Leader in Gartner 2018 MQ for Application Security Testing
March 22, 2018

Micro Focus has been named a Leader in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing.

This marks the fifth time the company has been named a Leader.

The report evaluated several AST products and services in Micro Focus’ Fortify portfolio, including Fortify on Demand, Static Code Analyzer, WebInspect, Software Security Center and Application Defender.

“DevSecOps, modern web application design and high-profile breaches are affecting the growing application security testing market. Security and risk management leaders will need to meet tighter deadlines and test more-complex applications by integrating and automating AST in the software life cycle,” according to the report.

“Testing environments are increasingly more dynamic and complex, making it more imperative for security and development teams to select the appropriate application security testing solutions,” said Scott Johnson, Fortify GM for Micro Focus. “We applaud Gartner for recognizing Fortify as a Leader once again in this space, and believe it is a reflection of what our customers have been able to achieve with Fortify’s considerable capabilities.”

Fortify provides trusted, proven application security testing and vulnerability management solutions that safeguard critical business applications, allowing developers to continue building secure software.

“By 2019, more than 50% of enterprise DevOps initiatives will have incorporated application security testing (AST) for custom code, an increase from fewer than 10% today. By 2020, 60% of security vendors will claim machine-learning capabilities, an increase from fewer than 10% today,” the report further stated.
