Seeking Answers Beyond DAST, Synopsys Debuts Latest IAST Features

Application delivery is becoming faster and more iterative. To keep up with this increasing velocity, there is a growing demand for automated security tools that run as close to code construction as possible.

Enter interactive application security testing (IAST), which simulates attacks against an application and monitors it in runtime via an agent to determine its response.

Synopsys recently released a new version of its IAST tool, Seeker, which seeks to address key application security needs, including:

  • Alleviating the security skills shortage through automation via DevOps tools
  • Shifting left in application security tool usage
  • Monitoring applications as they handle sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information

How well does Seeker address these needs? 451 Research shares their insights.
