There are few aspects of modern IT security that are as critical as application security. Simply put, if an application isn't secure, then everyone that uses the application could potentially be at risk, and the critical data processed by the application is at risk too.
The market for application security vendors is vast and varied, as there are multiple facets to application security that should be considered. There are also various ways in which application code can be tested to identify different types of vulnerabilities that could be potential security risks. These tools can boost DevOps and DevSecOps efforts by integrating security into the development process.
