New market study:
Application Security and
the Innovation Imperative

The Invicti AppSec Indicator,
Fall 2021 Edition

Innovation is a strategic imperative for every business, government and nonprofit. Software, and web applications specifically, are central to innovation. They are also at the forefront of our cybersecurity crisis. Our report, based on a survey of practitioners and leaders, examines areas of significant progress and uncovers several concerning gaps that require focused attention to address the worsening situation in web application security - and keep organizations innovating to solve what’s next.


  • How pressure to “release fast or die” leaves apps vulnerable
  • Why security integration into the SDLC is still a WIP
  • A day on the front lines: how stress is impacting critical talent
  • Why the animosity between dev and sec is overhyped
  • Key innovation trends that will shape the future of AppSec
