SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHat Security, the Web security company, today announced it has once again been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST).* This is the third year in a row that WhiteHat Security has been included in the upper right quadrant of this Magic Quadrant.
According to the Gartner Magic Quadrant report, "leaders in the AST market demonstrate breadth and depth of AST products and services. Leaders should provide mature, reputable SAST, DAST, mobile AST and, desirably, IAST techniques in their solutions. Leaders also should provide organizations with AST-as-a-service delivery models for testing, or with a choice of a tool and AST as a service, using a single management console and an enterprise-class reporting framework supporting multiple users, groups and roles."
"We are honored to be recognized as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the third year in a row," said Craig Hinkley, CEO of WhiteHat Security. "Applications are a leading threat vector for attackers, and as more breach headlines hit the news, the focus on securing those applications has never been greater at all levels of our customer organizations – from the security and development teams all the way to the C-level executives and board of directors.
"However, many organizations do not know where to begin when it comes to application security," Hinkley continued. "Our goal at WhiteHat is to aid our customers in developing mature application security programs and enable them to focus on innovating and building secure software for their business. Our solutions allow us to become an extension of our customers' internal security and development teams. We believe our position as a Leader in this Magic Quadrant is proof that we can bring practical and real security expertise to our customers."
