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.

Netskope, a leader in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), today announced an integration between Netskope's Intelligent Security Service Edge (SSE) platform and Amazon Security Lake from Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon Security Lake is a service that automatically centralizes an organization's security data from across their AWS environments, leading SaaS providers, on-premises, and cloud sources into a purpose-built data lake, so customers can act on security data faster and simplify security data management across hybrid and multi cloud environments.
Organizations want more visibility across all their security data sources, including on-premises and cloud, to quickly identify and respond to potential threats. To do this, they must enable logging across their security infrastructure, but often face challenges with incompatible data formats and no centralized place to store the logs for useful analysis.
To help solve these challenges, Netskope customers can now export logs from the Netskope Intelligent SSE platform to Amazon Security Lake. Amazon Security Lake manages data throughout its lifecycle with customizable data retention settings and converts and conforms incoming security data to the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OCSF), an open community schema. This makes it easier to automatically normalize security data from AWS and combine it with dozens of pre-integrated third-party security data sources.
Netskope and AWS can help customers detect and investigate threats faster, by providing:
Centralized Visibility: Organizations can now export logs, events and alerts collected by Netskope Cloud Exchange to Amazon Security Lake to get a holistic view of threats and vulnerabilities in their overall environment. Centralize years of cloud and on-premises security data at petabyte scale for detailed analysis.
Stronger Security Posture: Organizations can use Netskope logs and Amazon Security Lake analysis tools to quickly discover and remediate threats and vulnerabilities across their environment to strengthen their security posture.
Centralized Threat Remediation: Organizations can use Netskope and AWS services to respond to alerts and remediate threats from the centralized Amazon Security Lake console.
"As security threats increase along with the ongoing shift to hybrid work, organizations want to be confident that their data, employees, and resources are safe from potential attacks and other nefarious activities," said Andy Horwitz, Vice President of Business Development, Netskope. "Netskope has helped thousands of customers improve their security posture through the use of our Netskope Intelligent SSE platform. By meeting the rigorous standards in support of Amazon Security Lake, organizations can have greater confidence in Netskope's deep technical expertise on AWS and our proven track record in securing even the most complex cloud environments."
