Data Theorem Inc., a provider of modern application security, announced it has been positioned by Gartner in the Visionaries Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, 2022. Last year, Data Theorem was also positioned by Gartner in the Visionaries Quadrant of the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing.
According to Gartner, “Modern application design and the accelerating adoption of DevSecOps are expanding the scope of the AST market. Security and risk management leaders can meet tighter deadlines and test more-complex applications by seamlessly integrating and automating AST in the software delivery life cycle.”
With more than nine years of R&D investment, Data Theorem’s Analyzer Engine is the technology underpinning for all its flagship products: API Secure, Cloud Secure, Mobile Secure, Web Secure, and the recently launched Supply Chain Secure. The Analyzer Engine enables automated API and application discovery, inspection, and remediation of vulnerabilities, helping organizations to prevent data breaches of their applications.
According to Gartner, “Market drivers, centered on increasing regulatory and compliance mandates and a growing recognition of the risks associated with software, remain. A variety of high-profile software supply chain attacks underscored those risks, and — at least in the U.S. — prompted regulatory actions that will continue to drive overall application security demands. Based on these drivers, we expect worldwide AST end-user spending to exceed $3.1 billion in 2022.”
“We believe Data Theorem’s position again as a Magic Quadrant Visionary by Gartner validates our vision to protect API, cloud, mobile, and modern web apps with continuous monitoring and remediation,” said Himanshu Dwivedi, Data Theorem CEO. “As the API economy and cloud-native applications continue to proliferate, we see the attack surfaces and data breaches of businesses increasing at a similar rate. With our suite of cloud, web, API, and mobile products, Data Theorem has become one of the most valued partners to enable automated attack surface management and the prevention of AppSec data breaches.”
Data Theorem’s broad AppSec portfolio protects organizations from data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web frameworks, API-driven microservices and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its Analyzer Engine, which leverages a type of dynamic and run-time analysis that is integrated into the CI/CD process and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation.
Data Theorem provides a full-stack application security analyzer that connects attack surfaces of applications starting at the client layers found in mobile and web, the network layers found in APIs, and the infrastructure layers found in cloud services.
