The balance between deployment of secure applications against time to market remains the biggest risk to organizations.
Austin, TexasAnd the September 20 2022 /PRNewswire/- Invicti Security™one of the leaders in application security for more than 15 years, today released a new white paper: “Automated application security testing for faster development,” From an independent industry analyst company Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). The report covers how Invicti customers cost-effectively incorporate security into their development processes to secure their applications.
Organizations have faced challenges in adapting their application security strategies and solutions as they undergo faster digital transformation through faster development cycles. As organizations migrate workloads to the cloud, it speeds up development but also increases the risk of vulnerabilities as application development and security teams clash over priorities. In fact, a previous ESG study found that 48% of developers pay weak codes in order to meet deadlines.
Traditional application security solutions have not performed well with modern development because they are expensive to deploy and administer, raise a lot of false positives and alerts, and do not work in modern development workflows.

The report describes how:
- With the move to the cloud, organizations need a seamless solution that gives them protection and coverage for all of their applications, not just some of the business-critical applications. Otherwise, minor programming errors can leave them vulnerable to attacks that could compromise company or customer data.
- A leading television service network serving 26 million viewers has deployed Invicti to help them deliver on-time, secure applications, enabling them to innovate while protecting information collected online, particularly the Personal Information (PII) of viewers and employees, as well as its own data and intellectual property. .
- Global travel and vacation company uses Invicti to automate cost-effective security testing of applications across its portfolio of companies, enabling developers to fix security issues in their workflows.
- Invicti customers also report time and cost savings with fewer security incidents and teams working more efficiently with security integrated with developer workflows.
“With the speed of development increasing, companies need fast and seamless security solutions that integrate very well with developer tasks and tools, so they can bridge the gap between the development and security team’s priorities and needs,” he said. Sonali Shah, product manager at Invicti. “Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) is the best-positioned tool to reduce the risk of vulnerable web applications being thrown out without overwhelming or slowing developer teams.”
“The development life cycle is a complex process that requires many pieces and techniques to succeed. Adding security as an afterthought to this process has been shown to create vulnerabilities for organizations,” Melinda Marks, Senior Analyst at ESG. “With Invicti’s approach to application security, security experts can help developers instill safe practices into their development processes so that security enables innovation rather than slowing or blocking things.”
