In the 2023 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for Application Security Testing, Synopsys placed highest and furthest right for the fifth consecutive year for our Ability to Execute and our Completeness of Vision.
There’s a famous quote that says, “Leadership is action, not position.” That really resonates with me as I reflect on Synopsys once again being named a Leader in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST).
At Synopsys, we believe leadership comes from the myriad actions we take every day for our customers. It’s through those actions—and interactions—that our most important decisions are made, decisions around how best to help our customers build trust in their software by enabling them to manage application security at the speed their business demands.
We believe this continued recognition from Gartner reflects our commitment to helping our customers deliver software quickly and securely. As recently publicized vulnerabilities and software supply chain attacks show, application security is both critical and complex. To mitigate risks successfully, organizations need to employ multiple security testing solutions that are fast, scalable, easy to use, and seamlessly integrated into the software development life cycle (SDLC).
As the speed and complexity of software development increases—and high-impact security breaches become more frequent—security and development teams must integrate and automate effective security testing as part of their SDLC.
Synopsys continues to invest heavily in providing solutions to address the need for both speed and security.
These investments are an evolution of traditional application security (AppSec). They are enabling a new generation of AppSec, one that provides intelligent, context-aware risk management with increasing speed and simplicity. Whether delivered on-premises or through the cloud, Synopsys continues to provide bold and innovative solutions to our customers’ toughest challenges.
As more customers look to consolidate their AppSec providers, we pride ourselves on offering the vision, flexibility, openness, coverage, and staying power they need to keep pace with the changing world of software development and risk management. Our stability and longevity ensure a safe harbor against today’s—and tomorrow’s—economic uncertainties.
We are more committed than ever to helping our customers build trust in their software at the speed their business demands. We will continue to provide market-leading solutions that enable organizations to address the security of everything that goes into their software, decrease risk without jeopardizing their revenue streams, and align their people, processes, and technology to manage software risk across their organizations and at every stage of their development life cycles.
