Real World Application Security in Real Time

Posted by Jeff Williams

Application security has never been more important, yet traditional approaches are starting to fall apart as applications get larger, faster, and more complex while software development has accelerated to “ludicrous speed.” Unless something changes quickly, the world’s entire, limited pool of security experts will soon be completely absorbed seeking out Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. A new, automated approach called IAST has the potential to achieve better vulnerability analysis results in a way that is much more compatible with the way in which software is developed.
