Independent Research Firm Names CAST a Strong Performer in Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

New York – Dec 12, 2017 – CAST, the leader in software intelligence, today announced that it has been named a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Static Application Security Testing, Q4 2017.” Forrester evaluated 10 vendors, and CAST received the highest score in the Accuracy criterion.

“CAST marries security with quality metrics,” Forrester wrote. “The CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) offers a dashboard that security pros, development managers, and CIOs can use to capture quality characteristics called health factors. These include robustness, efficiency, changeability, transferability, and overall quality, along with security.”

Security professionals recognize the unusual depth of AIP’s contextual analysis when they see the results. AIP’s as-is architectural blueprints are used for threat analysis, modeling and building security into software. Specifically, AIP’s data model impact analysis shows potential data access issues, and the architecture checker monitors data access, superseding traditional static security checks, to significantly reduce false positives.

“CAST pioneered software intelligence, bringing light and understanding to structure of complex software systems. We have seen our system-level analysis protect customers from application security weaknesses, hackers and malicious insiders time after time,” said Vincent Delaroche, Chairman and CEO of CAST. “We believe this ranking from Forrester affirms our unique ability to map out data access all the way from user entry, and I’m happy to see we’ve received the highest score in the Accuracy criterion. Accuracy is what all CEOs and CISOs seek to protect their business and make smart decisions about cyber risk.”

By marrying contextual software analysis with industry-leading security standards, CAST helps organizations find flaws that traditional application security tools don’t catch. With a “very strong breadth of source code language support,” CAST technology pinpoints application security vulnerabilities, such as malicious code gaining forbidden access to data, lack of input validation and back doors.
