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.

Trellix, the cybersecurity company delivering the future of extended detection and response (XDR), today announced expanded support for Amazon Security Lake from Amazon Web Services (AWS), designed to automatically centralize security data from cloud, on-premises, and custom sources into a purpose-built data lake. This offering is designed to enable simpler and faster delivery of Trellix XDR solutions along with increased data privacy for AWS customers.
Trellix’s expanded support for Amazon Security Lake allows AWS customers to integrate their security data lake into the Trellix XDR security operations platform while also using the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OCSF). Amazon Security Lake is a service that automatically centralizes an organization’s security data from cloud and on-premises sources into a purpose-built data lake in a customer’s AWS account so customers can act on security data faster. In addition, the OCSF schema enables Trellix customers to combine hundreds of data sources with Amazon Security Lake data. As a result, AWS and Trellix customers can seamlessly apply Trellix machine learning (ML), threat intelligence, and predictive analytics to gain important insights that allow for deeper detection and faster threat mitigation.
“The amount of data available to any enterprise today is staggering,” said Britt Norwood, Senior Vice President, Global Channels & Commercial at Trellix. “Without a way to centralize the management and storage of that data, it’s difficult for customers to glean the insights needed to keep data safe. Our integration with Amazon Security Lake provides customers with more centralized visibility and quick resolution of their security issues.”
“With security at the forefront, we are relentlessly focused on innovating to deliver new ways to help customers secure their cloud environments,” said Rod Wallace, General Manager for Amazon Security Lake at AWS. “Customers who leverage Amazon Security Lake and Trellix can collect a wide spectrum of security logs and findings in Amazon Security Lake and send them to Trellix for advanced analytics and incident response.”
Trellix for Amazon Security Lake: Through new combined capabilities, customers can share security events across Trellix XDR and their Amazon Security Lake, getting complete detection and response capabilities for their AWS environments. By consolidating their security alerts into Amazon Security Lake using OCSF, security teams can spend their time protecting environments instead of performing the undifferentiated heavy lifting of managing their security data.
Trellix and OCSF: Trellix is proud to be a contributing member to the opensource OCSF community which has built a framework promoting interoperability and data normalization between security products. Joining OCSF promotes collaboration with other industry organizations, further benefiting customers and the broader cybersecurity community.
“Working with Trellix and AWS has made it so easy for us to manage analysis supporting our Hive-IQ platform,” said Laura Nolan, Executive Vice President, TeamWorx Security. “We are continuously impressed with how Trellix and AWS deliver new and innovative ways to help us stay secure within our cloud environments.”
Trellix is a global company redefining the future of cybersecurity and soulful work. The company’s open and native extended detection and response (XDR) platform helps organizations confronted by today’s most advanced threats gain confidence in the protection and resilience of their operations. Trellix, along with an extensive partner ecosystem, accelerates technology innovation through machine learning and automation to empower over 40,000 business and government customers with living security.

Illumio, Inc., the Zero Trust Segmentation company, today launched the Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation ROI Calculator, a self-service tool that quantifies what an organization’s return on investment (ROI) on Illumio’s Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) platform would be, bringing more clarity into their decision-making process.
In a difficult economy, organizations need to understand and be able to show the impact of every dollar they spend, and they need solutions that deliver a reliable return on investment. By answering a few simple questions related to their specific business environment, respondents will receive a written assessment of the quantitative impact Illumio ZTS would have on their organization, which will arm decision makers with data to support further investment in cybersecurity initiatives that reduce risk and increase resilience to breaches.
Illumio recently commissioned a Total Economic ImpactTM of Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) study from Forrester Consulting, who interviewed Forrester analysts, Illumio stakeholders, and Illumio customers from organizations of varying sizes and industries to inform their findings. The study found that Illumio delivered a total benefit of $10.2 million over three years and paid for itself in six months for a composite organization. Additionally, over three years Illumio ZTS:
Reduced a cyberattack’s blast radius by 66 percent by restricting lateral movement, which saved $1.8 million via decreased overall risk exposure.
Drove $3 million in savings via tool consolidation and reduced firewall costs.
Saved $3.8 million by limiting unplanned downtime.
Increased InfoSec’s operational efficiency by $1.6 million by reducing the time and effort needed to implement security policy.
Delivered 111 percent return on investment.
“The security industry is moving from the prevention and detection eras to the breach containment era to minimize the impact of breaches on the broader organization,” said PJ Kirner, CTO and co-founder at Illumio. “With a challenging economy, CFOs and boards are asking security teams to quantify the return on their investments. With this ROI calculator, leaders can validate the impact ZTS would have on their specific organization, accelerating the implementation of core security strategies that augment prevention and detection technologies to reduce risk and increase resilience to breaches more quickly.”
