  • Information Security Market Monitor: Application Security

    Verizon's 2020 Data Breach Investigation Report, which is augmented with public sector incident-response information, suggested that approximately 43% of data breaches could be traced back to the compromise of a web application. A number of factors, but notably the pace of application development, are leading to a long-talked-about trend toward moving away from point-in-time testing in application security to continuous approaches that federate day-to-day testing to application developers. 451 Research's VotE: Information Security research suggests that 2021 will be the year when developer and information security usage of application security testing tools reach parity, forcing both teams to collaborate in more meaningful ways, and pushing the tools themselves to evolve quickly or fall by the wayside in favor of tools better equipped to operate within a modern software development lifecycle.
