Fortify is Micro Focus' portfolio for application security testing and is widely recognized as one of the leaders in this space (alongside Checkmarx, Veracode, Synopsys). One of several application security functionalities delivered by Fortify is static analysis, often referred to as SAST (static application security testing). SAST executes a range of algorithms that try to find security problems by analyzing an application's source code, without executing it in any way (that's the "static" aspect of it). In the modern application development landscape, where large application portfolios get developed and deployed rapidly (DevOps, Agile), this type of automated analysis is essential as manual security review procedures wouldn't sufficiently scale. In this session, you'll get an introduction to Fortify SAST. How does it work, what algorithms are executed, what are its strengths and weaknesses, and how does it relate to other application security testing techniques (such as DAST, IAST, and SCA)?
