The universe of software development is expanding increasingly with new approaches. Agile and DevOps are just two of them. Developers are working on different approaches on a variety of projects. The emphasis on software testing varies. Current developments show that software testing should be initiated as an integral part of the development process.

The reality is that software bugs are still a massive problem. The top 606 bugs alone caused a total financial loss of USD 1.7 trillion through direct damage, hidden consequential costs, and fixed costs. It is hard to imagine that security testing is still of secondary importance to many companies.

To shed some light on the subject, we help you to get an overview of the current state of Application Security (AppSeC). Application Security takes place in different phases of the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC, DevSecOps). Software vendors usually rely on more than one Application Security Testing approach (SAST, DAST, IAST, ...), which has obvious advantages and disadvantages, discussed in more detail below. Since none of the approaches guarantees complete security, we have asked ourselves the following questions:

What are the essential requirements to ensure an effective and reliable testing process?

What could a better Application Security Testing solution look like?
