Hellman & Friedman to Acquire Checkmarx at a $1.15B Valuation

SAST vs DAST

Why SAST?

  • Better ROI since DAST works only after a build is reached.
  • Wider Coverage. DAST can’t find non-reflective flaws (XSS).
  • More effective in Agile, DevOps and CICD scenarios.
  • Helps automate the security process and create a secure SDLC.
  • Uses the only advantage the org has over hackers – access to source code.

Why DAST?

  • Detects runtime issues.
  • Does not require access to source code (good for 3rd party app testing).
