Micro Focus has been named a Leader for 6 years in a row in the Magic Quadrant for application security testing report issued by Gartner. Once again, Gartner has named Micro Focus a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for its Fortify offering based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute*.Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant.jpgBack in 2017, HPE Software (including Fortify) merged with Micro Focus to form one of the largest pure-play software companies of the world. We believe that security is one of the key focus areas of the new Micro Focus and Fortify’s focus on innovation and leadership in the application security space continue.

Fortify is adapting to new market dynamics by delivering innovative features such as machine learning assisted auditing and immediate developer feedback at IDEs. Fortify continues to support our customers with improved automation, integration and agility capabilities.

According to Gartner, “Leaders in the AST (Application Security Testing) market demonstrate breadth and depth of AST products and services. Leaders should provide mature, reputable SAST, DAST and IAST techniques in their solutions. Leaders also should provide organizations with AST-as-a-service delivery models for testing, or with a choice of a tool and AST as a service, and an enterprise-class reporting framework supporting multiple users, groups and roles, ideally via a single management console. Leaders should be able to support the testing of mobile applications.”
