What is the best Application Security Testing platform?


I'm choosing an Application Security Testing platform.

My use cases are as follows:

  • SAST
  • DAST
  • Component Scanning
  • Vulnerability auditing 
  • Mitigation

What product/solution would you recommend and why?

The first thing you'd want to do is


1.Look at your application inventory to determine the language and framework coverage.


2. The following would be what has the developer integrations with my current and future state CI/CD toolset, Developer IDE's


3. Do I have the security team to support it? Helps determine vendor and approach. I say Fortify as they are the only Hybrid (Cloud and OnPremise) approach. 


4. Does this need to be Cloud or OnPremise?


My most successful customers have used the following:


  • SAST - Hybrid of Fortify on-premise and Fortify on Demand, if support is needed for Perl or Groovy, buy some CheckMarx to cover that gap and Correlate findings with Saltworks SaltMiner.

  • DAST - WebInspect/ScanCentral & Fortify on Demand

  • Component Scanning - The most successful deployments have been with SonaType due to the Fortify integration. Blackduck, WhiteSource, and Snyk also manage plugins to Fortify SSC. If there is no budget, use OWASP Dependency Track to build your use case for a more robust Composition Analysis tool.

  • Vulnerability auditing - Done within Fortify SSC or Fortify OnDemand

  • Mitigation - Your Team, but if consulting is needed I would recommend Saltworks Security, Deloitte, Accenture & Cigital which have a reputation for managing Fortify programs.


Ping me if you need further guidance.

I suggest go for a Secure SDLC approach by integrating security at each level of the development life cycle. If you are constrained to select just one from the above then start with DAST. As it helps simulate realtime attacks on your production application and thus helps you address the most glaring issues.

SAST - Veracode, goes well with integration


DAST - Either Microfocus Webinspect or Burp Suite Professional or OWASP ZAP (Open Source)


Component Scanning - Blackduck or Sonatype Nexus Platform or Whitesource Bolt 


Vulnerability Auditing - Nessus & CIS - CAT ( Assessor Pro) or Qualys


Mitigation -  Team effort, for Security Orchestration  - Threadfix or ZeroNorth

I would like you to buy CHECKMARX as a SAST TOOL and have a look to KONDUKTO which embeds security tests into DevOps pipelines in an automated fashion using both open source and commercial security tools.                                  Vulnerabilities coming from different sources, be it from penetration tests, bug bounty programs or automated tools can be managed in a single platform to provide a unified view. With its unique process automation and CI/CD integration capabilities, Kondukto helps to scale AppSec effort and paves the way for DevSecOps.                                      My advice to pay attention the Visibility into vulnerabilities in native environments leads to improved security awareness among developers.

✔ Custom-tailored training programs based on the vulnerabilities created by each developer and team increase the ROI of training.

✔ Remediation database allows developers to benefit from the know-how accumulated in the company and fix vulnerabilities faster.

Hi my name is Rogerio from Xmart Solutions Brazil. we are an independent consultancy that representing several Ast solutions. Some factors are important to be evaluated such as: 


how many sast applications (static analysis) and how often will you do the analysis? how many analyzes (urls) will you do dynamically?
what are your sprints? Do you have internal development or with third parties? 


which languages ​​from your legacy? how will you implement with integrations? what tools?


would you like to have everything automated?


these are just a few questions for a decision.


I hope I contributed
