At Invicti, we are absolutely thrilled to be recognized for the first time in the Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing this year. Gartner is a leading IT research and advisory firm that helps businesses of all sizes evaluate technology and make informed decisions. We feel our acknowledgment in the report is a big deal, especially for a company of our size, and it marks a recognition by Gartner that the application security testing market and technology landscape are evolving. We believe that our approach is at the vanguard of that evolution.

Application security testing is a broad category. It includes everything from software composition analysis (SCA) to static, dynamic, and interactive application security testing. And while traditional SCA and static application security testing (SAST) certainly have their place, especially for taking inventory of open-source components and analyzing source code, a complete security program also requires DAST and IAST.  We are the only vendor in the Magic Quadrant that takes our approach to provide an orchestrated DAST and IAST platform. Invicti Security has intentionally developed Netsparker and Acunetix to uniquely orchestrate DAST and IAST, enabling organizations of all sizes to build a continuous and automated web application security practice.

Our mission is to enable you to vastly improve your security posture with scale and automation, and we do it by delivering unique products. We feel only Invicti – with our DAST, IAST, and dynamic SCA – can cover all of your apps (in development, in production, and even third-party). And only Invicti can do this with the scale, speed, accuracy, and automation you need for your agile (or DevOps) environment. Bottom line: our intelligent automation, 50+ integrations, and benchmark low rate of false positives make us stand out in a very crowded field of players in application security.

Of course, we’re only getting started. We’ve got lots in store as we continue to innovate on both Netsparker and Acunetix. We look forward to pushing the market to a more modern and scalable approach to application security.
