Synopsys Receives Highest Scores Across 5 Use Cases in 2022 Gartner® Critical Capabilities for Application Security Testing Report

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a recognized leader in application security, today announced the publication of the 2022 Gartner® Critical Capabilities for Application Security Testing, a report that complements the Magic Quadrant™ for Application Security Testing and ranks the same 14 vendors across five common Use Cases. Synopsys received the highest scores for all five use cases: Enterprise, Continuous Testing, Mobile and Client, DevSecOps, and Cloud-Native Applications.1,2

According to the report, “While the core of AST tooling remains SAST/DAST/IAST/SCA, there has been significant expansion into additional tools, as APIs take a larger role and cloud-based applications move into full-fledged production applications. As documented in the accompanying Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, the range of necessary capabilities has grown, requiring more comprehensive evaluations to ensure tools address the appropriate mix of application development technologies, styles and application architectures.”

“Recent high-profile vulnerabilities and software supply chain attacks have highlighted that managing software risk is becoming increasingly complex,” said Jason Schmitt, general manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. “Organizations need a variety of integrated and interoperable application security solutions to address risks across the SDLC and the broader software supply chain—solutions that help them prioritize their remediation efforts while maintaining the velocity of their development workflows. We have made significant investments in these areas over the past year, including the release of new Rapid Scan capabilities for Coverity SAST and Black Duck SCA, the launch of Code Sight Standard Edition (a standalone version of our IDE plugin for developer-driven testing), and the acquisition of Code Dx (an open platform that helps security and development teams correlate and prioritize security findings across their AST tool portfolio). We believe our continued recognition validates our strategy and ability to address the evolving needs of the market.”
