Contrast Security (Contrast), the code security platform built for developers and trusted by security, today announced it has been recognized as a Visionary by Gartner in the new "Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing" for 2023. We believe the recognition further validates that the Contrast Secure Code Platform is a strong fit for organizations looking to improve their application security posture.
"The application security testing market continues to be saturated with solutions that lack context and overwhelm DevSecOps teams with false positives," said Steven Phillips, Vice President of Product Marketing at Contrast Security. "We've listened to feedback from our customers and have put a focus on delivering a comprehensive platform that helps overcome these challenges. It's encouraging to see our position within the Magic Quadrant due to our Ability to Execute and the Completeness of our Vision. We provide customers with the tools they need to deploy real-time security tools accurately."
The Contrast Secure Code Platform provides customers the ability to "Shift Smart" allowing DevSecOps teams to apply security testing throughout the development process across the entire software development lifecycle. As the only unified code security platform on the market, Contrast leverages the power of instrumentation to embed security within the application's runtime. This solves the challenges of legacy application security tools present in modern software environments. Furthermore, this inside-outside approach allows organizations to very cleanly combine results from the various tools, coordinate actions between them and write and execute complex security and testing policies with very little overhead visible to developers. Those are the features that more complex offerings often fail to achieve.

Veza, the authorization platform for data security, today announced Veza for SaaS Apps, a solution to deliver access security and governance across SaaS applications, including Salesforce, JIRA, Coupa, Netsuite, GitHub, Gitlab, Slack, and Bitbucket. The solution allows customers to automate access reviews, find and fix privilege access violations, trim privilege sprawl, and prevent SaaS misconfigurations. With this solution, Veza secures the attack surface associated with SaaS apps while enabling continuous compliance with frameworks like Sarbanes-Oxley, ISO 27001, SOC 2, and GDPR.
Organizations today maintain an average of 125 different SaaS applications, costing $1,040 per employee annually, according to Gartner’s 2022 Market Guide for SaaS Management. As SaaS grows in popularity, security and identity teams are under pressure to manage security risks associated with the spread of data in these apps.
“SaaS applications are everywhere, holding sensitive data like customer lists, financials, and employee data. This is a new attack surface for the threat actors who misuse identity,” said Tarun Thakur, CEO and co-founder of Veza. “Conventional IAM techniques like authentication are not enough to secure access to data in SaaS apps. We are excited to introduce Veza for SaaS Apps to help our customers protect sensitive data against credential theft, malicious attacks and accidental exposure, putting SaaS access security within reach.”
The Veza solution includes integrations to 15 popular SaaS applications, including Salesforce, JIRA, Confluence, Coupa, Netsuite, GitHub, Gitlab, Slack, and Bitbucket. Because Veza uses an out-of-band approach to integrate with apps and systems, customers can integrate in less than a day, unlocking unprecedented visibility and control in just hours.
“Using Veza, we have been able to achieve end-to-end visibility over access permissions across our enterprise app stack, including Salesforce,” said Brian Miller, Director, Security Governance, Risk and Compliance at Achieve. “As our customer base continues to expand, Veza helps us maintain least privilege over sensitive financial customer data, giving us the confidence to adopt new apps at lightspeed.”
Capabilities of the Veza solution include:
Privileged Access Monitoring. Veza alerts security teams when there are new grants of privileged access and privilege drift in SaaS apps, such as new local admins in Salesforce. Veza monitors both human identities and machine identities like service accounts and third-party integrations.
User Access Reviews and Entitlement Certifications. Veza automates the identity governance and administration process of periodic access reviews, using workflow rules to route requests for certification and providing decision-makers with authorization context to choose the least-permissive role. Veza makes it possible to graduate from periodic batches to “continuous compliance.”
SaaS Misconfigurations. Veza monitors SaaS apps for administrative misconfigurations and policy violations with over 100 pre-built queries to monitor and detect common misconfigurations in permissions and access controls. For example, Veza alerts the security team when users have access to sensitive data but do not have MFA (multi-factor authentication) enabled.
SaaS applications contain sensitive data. Securing the access to this data in SaaS apps is complicated given the application-specific RBAC (role-based access control) that grants permissions to humans and services. Because security teams can’t see the reality of who can do what with data, SaaS apps are vulnerable to privilege sprawl and risky misconfigurations. The Veza Authorization Platform creates a comprehensive graph of identity-to-data by ingesting and organizing the authorization metadata (RBAC) from SaaS apps, cloud providers, data systems, and identity providers.
Veza is the authorization platform for data security. Identity and security professionals use Veza to modernize access governance for the new data and SaaS apps landscape. By automating the work of finding and fixing excessive permissions on a continuous basis, Veza helps organizations achieve Least Privilege. Veza’s unique approach ingests metadata from any SaaS app or data system, organizes it as an authorization graph, and makes it searchable in real-time. Global enterprises like Blackstone, Wynn Resorts, and Expedia trust Veza to protect sensitive data and automate access reviews. Founded in 2020, Veza is headquartered in Los Gatos, California, and is funded by Accel, Bain Capital, Ballistic Ventures, GV, Norwest Venture Partners, and True Ventures.
