Whether developing software for web applications or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices, ensuring functional software safety from the ground up is more important than ever for all industries. The Forrester Wave™: Static Application Security Testing, Q1 2021, authored by Forrester analyst, Sandy Carielli, states, “SAST solutions that build security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC), regardless of how and where the application is built, will lead the pack.”
Parasoft has long been committed to integrating testing into the continuous integration and delivery process with tight integrations into IDEs and CI/CD tools. The company continues to make it easier for developers to triage defects and take quick action. Parasoft's SAST solution incorporates risk model data from standards like OWASP, CWE, and CERT that are based on the likelihood of exploit, impact to business, and so on to prioritize fixes more.
Taking it a step further, the solution's embedded artificial intelligence (AI) identifies hotspots within the codebase and machine learning (ML) easily predicts and prioritizes findings to help developers focus on the right task. It offers a complete view of SAST adoption, risk scoring, and compliance reports providing developers, managers, and security professionals the answers they need to build and deliver high-quality software that's secure.
